Best time to travel Romance in France has no season. A favorite time of the year to travel here could be spring and autumn, when the weather is perfect. Summer is also nice, but it can be full of tourists. August is the hottest month and much of France is on vacation, so, if possible, avoid August or book the Riviera early. Winter is a good time to visit with great offers for the low season and fewer crowds of tourists.
How long to stay We suggest at least 4 days in Paris, but for many even a week is not enough in this "City of Lights". Newlyweds often choose Paris and another region. This will give you the opportunity to discover and experience the romance of Paris and another beautiful region. Popular options are also Provence, Loire Valley and the French Riviera, where you could easily stay a week in each.
Food Meals are always the first on the list of travelers, especially honeymooners. Food and wine in France are among the best in the world. This is a gastronomic experience that you will not forget soon. Reservations at the best restaurants must be made in advance.

Plan to relax When you arrive in France, you will have a jet lag and you may need some downtime. Weddings can be stressful, so take the time to relax and enjoy each other.
Accommodations Book the best room you can afford. France Journeys personally selects hotels, castles and B & B for its charm, atmosphere, service and location. Do not leave anything to chance and keep in mind that updates once you arrive, especially in high season, may not be possible.
Packaging Pack as lightly as possible and be sure to put clothes for yourself and your spouse in each suitcase. This can help if a bag is lost or delayed. Always carry jewelry, medications and travel documents in your handbag.
