Date Added: October 31, 2013 10:29:31 PM
With its culturally rich places and the wonderful landmarks on its belt, France is indeed heaven for tourists. This heaven is sliced down to smaller bits and pieces that boast of different offerings. Here, learn about some of the biggest chunks that you must pay a visit first.
Up in the northern border of the country, one will find the historical County of Flanders, part of which is the French Flanders, a unique region that was once part of the Netherlands. Given this history, the French Flanders provides a different experience to people visiting it. It has a distinct architectural landscape and its people speak another dialect.
Farther down to the center and eastern part of France, one will spot the largest cities in the country. Of course, there is the capital city of Paris, the largest and most populated of all of them. Also called the City of Love and Lights, Paris is world-renowned for its iconic and historically significant sites, such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre.
In the southern part of the country, the city of Marseilles is the largest one you can find. It is also considered the second largest in France, if it is the city proper that is considered and not the metropolitan area (for this, the rank goes to Lyon). This populous city is famous for its unique culture that is propagated by the various galleries, museums, theaters, and opera houses found within its borders.
