Plan My Trip: France
France is a very diverse and beautiful country. It is full of art, architecture, history, and food. With so many places to visit and explore, you will never bored.

Second Destination: Lascaux
Third Destination: The Loire Valley
The Loire Valley is famous for its Châteaux, or large manor houses. The château made in the Loire Valley were made between the 10th and 20th centuries. They housed many rulers such as Edward VIII.
To get to the valley, you can take a train from Paris. When in the valley, you can take a train, bus, or car.
Fourth Destination: Marseille
Marseille is the second largest city in France, with many exciting attractions to explore. It has a Mediterranean climate and sees up to 300 days of sunshine each year. The city is full of large churches and vibrant street markets. Marseille has been an international shipping port for about 2,600 years.
The easiest way to get to Marseille is to take the train. The main train is the Gare St-Charles. When in Marseille, you can take the bus, tram, or metro. Tickets are usually 1.50 Euros (about $2) and day passes are 5 (around $7)
First Destination:
Champs Eleysees
By: Sara Schmidt
Fifth Destination:
The French Riviera
In southwestern France, Lascaux is a destination famous for its Paleolithic (from the Paleolithic Era, when most primitive tools where discovered) cave paintings found in a series of underground caves. The cave is sometimes called the "Sistine Chapel of Prehistory". It is located near the town of Montignac. Sadly, you are not able to look at the actual paintings. There are replicas so you are able to see the amazing paintings.
To get to Lascaux, you can drive from Les Eyies. The drive is about 12 miles long. Another option is to take the rail. A taxi to the rail costs about 20 Euros, or about 27 US dollars.
After arriving at Lascaux, you can visit the Lascaux II, the replica of the real cave. The original paintings were by the Cro-Magnon people about 15,00-20,00 years ago. The reason or purpose of the paintings is unknown. There are also several museums nearby that you can visit, like the Préhisto Parc or the Le Thot (which is a museum and zoo. The Préhistro Parc has recreations of scenes from daily life of the Cro-Magnon society. Le Thot has animals similar to those illustrated on the cave walls, like the European Bison. There are rooms which show short movies on the discovery of Lascaux and the painting techniques used on the cave.

Where to Stay
Where to Eat
There is a restaurant called Aux Berges de la Vézére in Montignac that sits on a river bank and overlooks streets and houses near the river. It serves modern French food and Italian food. The pizza features quiality aged cheese (like 36 month aged Parmesan).
You can stay at the Hostellerie la Roseraie, a small and quiet hotel. It has an elegant rose garden and a pool in the backyard. Each mid-sized bedroom has its own bathroom with either a bathtub or shower. The restaurant in the hotel serves traditional French cuisine.
Why do I Want to Visit?
I want to visit Lascaux because of the caves. The caves are home to some very old prehistoric paintings, which would be very cool to see in person.

The Les Arcenaulx is a quaint restaurant
with book-lined walls and a outdoor terrace.
While you wait for your meal, you can enjoy a book. They serve French/Mediterranean cuisine.
There is a moderately priced hotel called the Alizé that sits on the Viex Port and has amazing view of the port. Rooms start at 109 Euros ($149). The location is good, since it is close to many shops.

Two popular places to go in Marseille are the
Abbaye St-Victor and the Musée d'Histoire de Marseille (Marseille Museum of History). The St-Victor Abbey is a
gigantic monastery built in the 14th century. There is a crypt buried under the church that houses the remains of St Victor, who was killed by the Romans. The Marseille Museum holds models and artifacts that shows the city in different stages of history.

I want to go to Marseille becuase of the sights to see and the interesting resturants. The Les Arcenaulx sounds really cool- the walls are bookshelves, you get to read before you eat, and I really like to read so it sounds fun.

The Champs Elysées is Paris's most famous street. It is lined with formal gardens, cafes, theaters, and shops. The Arc de Triomphe is located in the very beginning of Champs Elysées.
You can get there by the metro from Champs Elysées
Clemenceau. To get around in the Champs Elysées , you can walk to bike around.
What to Do
Besides visiting the many gardens and stores, you can visit the Arc de Trimphe. It was built in 1805 after the victory of the Battle of Austerlitz. Napoleon said to his soldiers "You shall go home beneath the triumphal arches".
Where to Eat
You can eat at the many cafes around the Arc and along the Champs Elysées. There is a tearoom called Ladurée which is considered the best tearoom since 1862.
Where to Stay
The Hôtel Fouquet's Barriére is conventely located a few blocks away from the Arc and
right next to Champs Elysées, on 46 Ave George V. The rooms are decorated in mahogany, velvet, and silk.
Why do I Want to Visit?
There is an amazing amount of things to see and stuff to do. There is art, food, and architecture. The Arc is also
very close to Champs Elysées, so I can shop and sight see all in one place.

What to Do
You can visit the Châteaux or the towns in the valley. Each town contains a Château and many are open to the public. You can bike though the valley, too. There is 496 miles of bike paths along the river.

The Château de Candé (the Château that housed Edward VIII)
You can enjoy a meal at Le Petit Patrimoine. It is a small, reasonably priced restaurant that specializes in traditional regional cuisine. It is located in Vieux Tours.
There is a hotel that is one of Audrey Hepburn's favorites: the Domaine de la Tortinière. It sits on a sloping lawn with two turrets and towers. The gourmet restaurant sits overlooking the lawn.
It would be really interesting to go biking along the river and visit the Châteaux along the way.
Staying at a hotel that was one of Audrey Hepburn's favorites also seems very interesting.
Why I Want to Visit
I want to visit the French Rivera because of the lavish lifestyle presented in the area. There is lots of beaches, shops, and art to see around the Riviera, so there would always be something to do.
There are so many things to do in the French Riviera. You can go to the beach, like St Tropez, you can go to museum or take a tour, etc.
To get there, you can travel in by bus, plane, or boat. The Riviera has the second largest airport in France.
One of the main things visitors like to do is to spend time on the beach. You can swim, snorkel, water ski, and soak up the suns rays. A popular beach that even sees celebrites is St Tropez.
A restaurant close to St Tropez is the Salama. It serves Moroccan food. Visitors claim Salama serves the best couscous (small pasta) in the Cote d'Azur. It is located right by Tropez's main harbor.
The Hôtel Sube is right on the port of Tropez. It is right over the Café de Paris bar, too. The rooms are decorated in the French provincial style.
