Anna is a vibrant woman. At some point, she realized her life wasn't what she really wanted. That's why she quit her corporate job in France at the age of 23 to follow her heart and travel around the world. She is now a digital nomad constantly on the move.

Heard of Mona-Lisa? The famous painting by Leonardo Da Vinci? Venus de Milo by Alexandros of Antioch at least? When it comes to arts and architecture, Musee de Louvre, or the Louvre Museum holds the greatest of galleries under one roof, and we assure you that you will be fascinated by each and every piece.

And then there’s the Eiffel Tower, lit up in the evening and just before the sunset, offering an incredible view, mostly visited and adored by love-birds who are ready for a lifetime of ‘together-forever!’You’ll never get tired of the many Cathedrals found all around France.

Cathedrale Notre Dame, Sainte-Chapelle, Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere are few of the most famously known places of worship where the history of each one of them runs back up to centuries, but yet the structures and elegance of them leaves you speechless.

The great thing about all of France is that wherever you go, you’ll be offered with guided tours with transportation as well. So if French isn’t in your vocabulary, you’ll still be able to know where you are headed to. Or if not, you could still rent out your own vehicles to drive around.

It is true that clothes can’t change the world, but you who are in them surely can! Dare to shop at some world-renowned fashion boutiques with pieces from the best designers? Boucheron, Cartier, Chanel, Dior, Hermes, Rolex, Van Cleef or Louis Vuitton, you’ve got them all in France!

From Pont Alexandre III to the Promenade des Anglais and Arc de Triomphe, Palace of Versailles to the Centre Historique, you will never have enough days to visit the places that you actually should! You will doubt yourself whether you are actually in the 21st century because these locations will give you such a vintage vibe, close to historic happenings at its core.

If looked into it with great thoughts, every green tree is far more glorious than if it was made in gold or silver. If you love nature and if the glory of streets with green sceneries impress you, the Parisian Boulevards are a sight you shouldn’t miss. Parc de la Tete d'Or, Luxembourg Gardens and Jungle Garden Karlostachys will keep you occupied with nature for hours.

Oh! How could you ever forget!

If you ever get the chance to, don’t even think of missing the Tour De France! Surely you might not be able to go every day, but make sure to get a glimpse of it at least! The atmosphere of pure battle through cycling will keep you tensed and in good sport spirits!

“Mieux vaut tard que jamais” means it is better late than never! So go ahead, get you ticket booked now! Will it possible not want to shop at some world-famous fashion houses and taste some truly Western delicacy along with a glass of wine?
