Of course, it’s not a surprise that the French capital is first on the list; isn’t it on every bucket list of places to see? For good reason, Paris is most definitely the first city to visit in France. With its beautiful parks, great restaurants, and museums galore, traveling to The City of Lights will bring you lots of great memories. I’d recommend going in spring, the weather is beautiful and you might avoid the city being quite so full as tourists as it is in the summertime (though if you want tourist free- Paris might not be the place for you!) In fact, being so very popular among travellers, you might end up queuing for major attractions, so it’s better to plan ahead and book in advance using a company like Musement.com so you can arrive in Paris with your Eiffel Tower tickets already pin your hand and therefore skip the hours standing in a long line! As well as the city’s famous tower, the top Parisian sites include Notre-Dame Cathedral, The Louvre museum and the Arc de Triomphe.

Don't forget to book your accommodation at a good time, because Paris is one of the most popular cities in the world. For budget friendly options you can find the best youth hostels in Paris online as you really don’t need to stay in your room much with so much to see.

Located on France’s southwest coast, Biarritz is the perfect destination for those of you that enjoy the beach, a laid back time, and most importantly, surfing. Biarritz is a unique mix of being a fancy beach resort, and a casual place for suffers to hang out and catch some waves (visitors in designer clothes, and others in flip flops.) There is also a lot of history in the city’s architecture- Napoleon himself used to visit Biarritz as a holiday location and the streets offer visitors a gorgeous combination of Basque, art-deco and neo-classical structures. I only advice that you go fully aware that if you visit in peak season, you must be prepared to pay peak-season prices as this is one of the ‘go to’ destinations in Europe.
