    1. Thank you for the comment Larry. I’ve been to The Loire Valley and Chenonceau Castle as well. As you know France has so much to offer, it’s impossible to cover them all in just one article! Which are those 3 places you have been to from my list?

  1. Although I have never been to France-except to fly over it-I have always had it on my bucket list! Your article has really rekindled that fire in me, thank you. Do you know if Paris offers a “city Ticket” like they do in London where you buy a single pass to go to all the main attractions in the city? Thanks again-great article!

    1. Thank you Vic for the great comment. I’m glad that my article inspired you to pack your bags for France. 

      I’m not very sure of the “city ticket” kind of thing in Paris. Have a look at TicketBar and Ticketmaster. These websites offer combination tickets to the main attractions, museums, etc. Hope you find them useful for your next trip to Paris.

  2. Lovely France! Wonderfully written. I never knew that there is a disneyland in france. It was wonderful knowing that. The Louvre Museum is worth visiting to see the great design engineer ever lived in this planet. Vinci was much ahead of his time and no words can ever express him. Reading your blog made France my next travel destination. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you for the feedback Saurav. I’m glad you liked the article and inspired to visit France. 

  3. You’ve made the perfect list of things to do when in France. Now I have my itinerary set.

    I think I’d be most excited about Disneyland Paris and the Louvre. I’ve seen the Eiffel Tower from a distance, but didn’t get the chance to go to any of these places on my one day visit. You’ve given me some things to think about in my future travels. Truly appreciated.

    1. Thank you Jaime. I’m glad you liked the article and found it useful for your next trip to Paris.
