FRANCE

Welcoming people, the influential culture and history, the gorgeous and varied landscape, the vibrant and essential cities, and of course the cuisine, all blend into a one-of-a-kind experience. France is referred to as l-Hexagone due to its shape, and is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, the English Channel, the North Sea and on the east by the Rhine River. The country boasts extraordinarily diverse and beautiful terrain from rolling hills and lavender fields in Provence, majestic Alps in Bordeaux, and a wind-swept coast in Brittany to the west and balmy luxuriousness of palm trees and warm sun in the Riviera down south. Planning your France honeymoon may seem exorbitant. After all, this land has the best in fine wine, strong cheese, exquisite breads, extravagant chateaus, fantastic architecture and attractions as unique as they are breathtaking. And don’t forget the cafes and bistros, museums and gardens…all inspiring the sublime essence of romance in France. 

And a visit to the city of Monaco, that is picturesquely built on the rocks which juts out of the sea and drops perpendicularly on the waves below on almost all the sides
