Europe on a Shoestring - France (Chapter)
This is the France chapter from Lonely Planet's Europe on a Shoestring guidebook.
Few countries provoke such passion as La Belle France. Love it or loathe it, everyone has their own opinion about this Gallic goliath. Snooty, sexy, superior, chic, infuriating, arrogant, officious and inspired in equal measures, it’s a culinary trendsetter, artistic pioneer and cultural icon.
- gorge on the iconic sights and sophistication of Europe’s most hopelessly romantic city, Paris
- relive the French Renaissance with extraordinary chateaux built by kings and queens in the Loire Valley
- taste bubbly in ancient caves (cellars) in Reims and Épernay, the heart of Champagne
