Home to the iconic Eiffel Tower standing tall above the metropolitan city of Paris, France is definitely a tourist hotspot. 

French cuisine, wine and fashion are often what comes to mind, not to mention the likes of the Notre Dame and the Louvre in its capital, Cannes and St Tropez on the Côte d’Azur, to the towns of Normandy and Lille in the north.  France certainly has different places to visit andis a good choice for first-time solo traveller’s to really experience Parisian life.
