Why We Love France
The Eiffel Tower, wine, fashion and quiche are a few things that conjure emotions about France. Take a look at all the reasons why Travel Channel loves this country.
Wine and CheeseWe love the French for their wine and cheese. Popular French wines, champagne, and cognacs are made in the Bordeaux, Alsace, Loire, Rhone and Bourgogne regions. Add a wedge or two of their world-famous cheese, like Brie or Camembert, into the mix and it's a perfect combination. 960 1280

Cafe CultureWe love how the French spend time with friends and family at cafes in Paris' Le Marais neighborhood. Grab a cup of coffee and a croissant, sit outside and let the people-watching begin. 960 1280
