Spend summer in this sunny international resort on the Mediterranean shoreline. A former fishing village, Cannes boasts some of the most beautiful scenery in France. It is a unique balance of a cosmopolitan city with the relaxed attitude of a seaside resort. Immerse yourself in the language and culture, strolling along the Promenade de la Croisette, stopping at an open-air café, shopping along the palm-lined boulevards and even checking out the iconic Cannes Film Festival.
Paris is one of the world’s greatest capitals of culture. Countless images of iconic sites such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame and the Champs-Élysées have been produced, but to really understand the magic and enchantment of Paris, you have to experience it. Known throughout the world for its museums and great historical monuments, the city itself is laid back and easy to get around. The top restaurants and the greatest names in fashion sit next to vintage stores and take-away crêpes stalls.
Situated in southeastern France, at the foot of the Alps, Grenoble is located in one of the loveliest areas of the country—“une ville alpine par excellence.” The town itself lies at the crossroads between the valleys and the mountains which comprise the Dauphiné region. From Roman times to the 1968 Winter Olympics and on to today, Grenoble has attracted visitors from all over the world. With its 200,000 inhabitants, Grenoble is small enough to feel like a town, but large enough to offer all the amenities of a busy city (cultural festivals, theaters, museums). The “Capital of the Alps”, dominated by majestic mountains such as Chartreuse, Belledonne and Vercors, provides the ideal location for those who enjoy the outdoors.
