A map of the best places to see and visit in France. Zoom in to separate markersThe About-France.com selection – a unique choice of interesting places to stay and places to visit in France.
It is not a map that shows everything there is to see or do in France; that would be pointless and very hard to use. Nor is it a standard list of all the most popular or the most visited places in France; it is an original selection of a lot of the most interesting places to visit.
You will find on this map many of the most popular tourist sites in France, but not all of them. The map shows France's most emblematic historic monuments, but it also includes a good number of very interesting and/or attractive places in France that are not on the main tourist circuits: interesting small towns, attractive villages that are not overrun by tourists, even during the peak summer holiday period, some of France's most magnificent natural heritage areas, and many hidden gems,towns and villages that are very attractive in their own right, but may be off the tourist trail, or overshadowed by some other nearby attraction.
This map does not, cannot, show all the tourist sites that France has to offer; there are just too many of them. A choice has been made to show just a manageable selection throughout France.
