France is one of the top vacation destinations in the world with more than 80 million tourists each year. As one of the oldest countries, France offers a rich history as well as a great deal of culture, museums, gorgeous scenery and architecture, and delicious cuisine. Many sites attract thousands of visitors each year.

1. Mont Saint-Michel: A truly unique monastery in the north of France, Mont Saint-Michel is at times an island and at other times part of the mainland, depending on the tides. Filled with turrets and towers, the monastery takes visitors back to the Middle Ages.

2. Pont du Gard: In the south of France lies the Pont du Gard, an aqueduct and an amazing feat of engineering. The bridge is epic in scope and built with hand-carved blocks.

3. Eiffel Tower: Of course, the classic Eiffel Tower is a must-see. The iconic structure defines the Paris skyline and offers a bird’s eye view of the entire city.
