Joie de vivre, the joy of living, sums up the French appetite for life. Stroll along the banks of a quiet river, browse the city-sized art galleries of the Louvre, sample cuisine at a bouch on tavern in Lyon, or debate politics at a corner café in Bordeaux. Whatever you do, you will feel, see, taste and understand why some of history’s greatest artists, writers and scholars have been attracted to France. Destinations within this vast country include Lyon, the student-friendly food capital of France; historic Bordeaux, with its easy access to nearby beaches and wine regions; and Paris, the elegant center of art, fashion, business, and arguably the best croissants in the world.
