Guide to France
France is Europe's second biggest country and perhaps the most stylish.
By TTM on 10 October 2007 in Destination Guides
For many the pull of France is its gastronomy, wine, cheese or perhaps the fashion and the fashionable Le Mans 24 hour race. Its offerings are diverse from rustic small villages where the bakery is still the main shop to the glamour of Deauville, St Tropez and Monaco. This is after all the country that invented the word 'chic', where the traditional and the modern seem to co-exist intriguingly embuing everything French with a sense of je ne sais quoi.
Name: French Republic
Entry/Visa: A valid passport is required. UK/EU nationals do not need a visa.
Tipping: Service charges are included by law in France and you will see the words 'service compris' to show this. Rounding up your bill to the nearest euro is customery or if you are delighted with the service add a few more euros.
