A destination with something for everyone

France – and Paris in particular – is the perfect destination for a city break all year round. Fancy a weekend in the countryside or a city break in Paris? Then explore all that France has to offer with its historic buildings, diverse cuisine and stunning scenery. Ready to get away?

Paris, the city with multiple personalities

With its Eiffel Tower, bistros on every corner and neighbourhoods with distinctive personalities, the more you visit, the more Paris surprises you!

If it’s your first time in Paris...
Opt for the winning combo of the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame, Sacré-Cœur, the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Élysées, which should be more than enough to keep you busy for a weekend.

If you’re feeling peckish…
When it comes to sampling French cuisine, there’s no better place than a traditional Parisian bistro. You’ll be spoilt for choice, but our favourites are Bouillon Chartier and Bouillon République. Savour culinary classics from all over France like croque-monsieur and saucisse purée, or, if you’re feeling adventurous, snails! If the weather hots up, head to Île Saint-Louis and cool off with an ice cream from Berthillon while you stroll along the Seine. Is there a flavour you can’t resist?

Culture galore...
For culture vultures, Paris is bursting with every conceivable type of museum, monument and venue. Lose yourself in the Louvre, marvel at the Musée d’Orsay or explore the Pompidou Centre…There’s something for everyone!

A little magic? 
And to add a touch of magic during your stay, Disneyland© Paris is easily accessible from the centre of the capital.

That’s right: every stay in Paris is unique with endless things to do! There’s always a good reason to go back.

Dijon, city of flavours

Just 315 km from Paris, Dijon’s delightful city centre is almost completely car free. Stop in Place du Bareuzai to admire the magnificent merry-go-round and shop for ‘nonettes’, the sweet treats that are a local speciality.

For a spot of culture, visit the Musée des Beaux-Arts, where you’ll find one of France’s best collections of fine art. Last but not least, for a touch of greenery, take a stroll around Jardin Darcy and discover a different side to the city!

Nearby Beaune is home to the museum dedicated to Burgundy’s winegrowing heritage: the Cité des Climats et des Vins de Bourgogne. Here, you can learn about – and taste – the region’s wines. And if you want the full vineyard experience, the Route des Grands Crus begins in Dijon and ends in Santenay. Along the way, this prestigious route takes in some of the world’s greatest wines. Where better to enjoy a Romanée-Conti than the very place it was made? Set amid idyllic countryside, each village along the route has its own vineyards and appellations for red (pinot noir) and/or white (chardonnay).

This summer, say yes to sun in the Mediterranean

Can you hear the call of the cicadas from Geneva? Just three hours away by train, discover the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region with its rich history and culture. Climb aboard for a sensory journey exploring Marseille, Avignon, Nice and Aix-en-Provence. Sunshine and change of scenery guaranteed.

Marseille: a cosmopolitan city by the sea

On the shores of the Mediterranean, Marseille is a cosmopolitan city that offers the good life. Our top tips: take a stroll along the Corniche, eat bouillabaisse, the city’s famous rock fish soup, hike through the calanques, take a boat to Île du Frioul, discover Le Corbusier’s Cité Radieuse, or visit the Friche Belle de Mai... And if you’re a football fan, watch a match at the iconic Stade Vélodrome!

Charm and elegance in Aix-en-Provence

Just 35 minutes from Marseille, Aix-en-Provence is welcoming all year round. The city boasts a favourable climate, elegant streets and bustling squares. Once home to Paul Cézanne, the world-renowned 19th-century painter, it’s the ideal destination to experience the Provençale art of living and visit cultural attractions, including museums, foundations and archaeological sites.

Avignon: the historic city of Popes

Avignon is a small city steeped in history! Travel back in time at the Palais des Papes, dance on the Pont-d’Avignon or marvel at the masterpieces inside the Petit Palais. And while you’re in the capital of the Rhône Valley wine region, why not enjoy a glass or two?

Nice: capital of the Côte d’Azur

Who hasn’t dreamt of taking a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais? Charming Nice is a prime example of the Mediterranean lifestyle, exuding the typical charm of the south. Whether you breakfast on a pissaladière (pizza with anchovies), socca (chickpea pancake) or pain bagnat (tuna and salad sandwich in a fluffy bread roll) on a sun-drenched terrace, find some peace and quiet in the old town, spend the afternoon shopping in the city’s swanky boutiques, take a dip in the sea, sip an aperitif on Cours Saleya or catch a classical concert at the Opéra… one thing’s for sure: you’ll get a taste of the good life in Nice.
