Perhaps, it is its world-renowned romance with fabric that the fashion fraternity calls couture. Or, maybe it is the museums here, home to the most prized art possessions on Earth. However, we opine that the rich beauty of the French canvas, is a portrait narrated by a mindset that’s intoxicated with the cherry wine hues of love and passion, garnished with what the French would call, je nai se quoi. While Paris, home to the Eiffel Tower and a sartorial universe by itself, may invite tourists, there is a lot to France beyond the city.

 

The villages of the country, picturesque in their provincial glory, are ‘’quaint’’essentially, the heart and soul of France. All the raving about French food is actually all true. Be it their delightful sauces, their filling pastries, their crumbling bread, their lip-smacking cheese, or their effervescent champagne, all of France’s richness is distilled in its cuisine. Infact, coffee is so authentically Parisian that coffee houses over the world are termed café, which is French for the beverage. In addition, art thrived in Paris, especially the romantic style of Impressionism. Cities on the Riviera boast the most legendary curatorial efforts. The Louvre, is another celebration of the most iconic sculptures and paintings, from the time of The Renaissance.

 

The French skyline is also dotted by the tall minarets of palatial castles and ornate palaces. Case in point, the majestic Palace of Versailles. We invite you to taste the splendour of this exotic country on a decadent dessert platter, and toast a sweet Rose as you sit at a potted balcony, smoking a cigarette, in a pair of bespoke Dior trousers, rejoicing at the idyllic rendezvous of the boundless emerald plains with the clear azure skies. The tourist places in France will give you an experience to be cherished forever.

What an elegant place to discover. I always wanted to visit Picasso National Museum and I found this great discount they were providing on the tickets so I booked them for myself and my parents on our trip to Paris. We just showed our Thrillophilia vouchers on the location and they instantly allowed us in. I really liked it and would definitely recommend Thrillophilia.
