The Basics
Everything that you need to know about traveling to France is included in this section.  After years of traveling to France, we saw the need to create this website, and hopefully help other people that travel to France.  It contains useful information, France travel sources and travel planning, booking accommodation and transportation search engines, and a a little about everything travel related for your trip to France. 

France is a great place to visit, and since Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world, it means that you need to make reservations for everything.  Not just your air and hotel reservations, but also sightseeing tours, museums, all of that needs advance booking so that you'll be assured your reservation, and its not a last minute hassle.

You'll find help with English to French words and phrases to use on your trip, and a wealth of information to help organize your trip to France.  It is always polite to know a few French words, and the French really appreciate it when you at least try to speak to them in French, and they in turn will probably ask to speak to you in English.  Use these handy links below for instant sources:
