France stands out above the rest as the most visited country in Europe, and for good reason. Its mountains, beaches, cities, grandiose palaces and more make it a tourist’s paradise.

The city of love, the city of lights, or whatever you want to call it, Paris’ reputation precedes it. It is sightrunning heaven, with the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame and Sacré-Coeur all vying for your attention. But France is far from a one-trick pony. Other major cities, such as Lyon, Nice and Strasbourg all have their unique charm. The South of France is dotted with innumerable fairytale villages that are quietly content with the slow life. Go! Running Tours in France show you the country from a local’s perspective.

You can’t talk about France without mentioning food. France’s delectable cuisine is the perfect excuse to turn your recovery meal into a fine dining experience. From beef bourguignon to macarons or even the simple croissant, the French do it best. And there’s no reason not to have a liquid lunch with some of the world’s best wines at a vineyard.

For centuries, France has been the European leader of style and class. You can see this through museums like the Louvre, elegant châteaux like Chenonceau and pristinely kept green spaces almost everywhere you go.
