France Flights GuideOne the most most well-known and largest countries in the European Union, with a population of over 67 million people. France is known to be the foremost travel destination, with over 83 million international visitors annual. France, the most popular touristic city, features landmarks such as The Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, as well as world class museums and cultural outputs.
Popular destinations include the capital, Paris and nearby UNESCO World Heritage site Mont St. Michel, The French Riviera, located along the southern coast of the country, and cities like Lyon and Marseille. Many of these places are known as outposts of the classic and elegant French culture, and French cuisine such as escargot, and French wine such as Bordeaux.
Paris boasts France's two largest and busiest airports, Orly and Charles de Gaulle. Both are international and see thousands of flights everyday. The third largest airport is located in Nice, and is also international. Fourth is Lyon St Exupery, located in Lyon. All these airports offer both domestic and international flights to Europe and beyond.
France's climate varies somewhat by region, as large parts of the country are along the Atlantic and coast, and some are landlocked. In general, France has an oceanic climate, with fairly hot summers and rather cool, snowy winters (this is particularly true in capital city Paris), but in the South and along the coast the weather tends to be a bit warmer, as it is moderated by proximity to the equator and also the sea to the south.
