    International students studying in Finland that love the outdoors will feel right at home. So, as much as there are friendly study cities in France for foreign students, there are a number of popular, historical and exciting sites to visit while studying in France as an international student.

    But with so much to experience, see and explore, choosing where to visit in France can feel overwhelming. So here are some favorite picks to inspire your travel bucket list🤩

    Eiffel Tower: The symbol of Paris, the Eiffel Tower is a feat of ingenuity as much as it is a famous landmark. This structure of 8,000 metallic parts was designed by Gustave Eiffel as a temporary exhibit for the World Fair of 1889. The Eiffel Tower is symbolic of the city of Paris and vice versa. It’s a sin to be in France and not pay a visit to the most famous monument of France! The higher you go up the tower, the more you discover the city of Paris. Students can visit the Eiffel Tower at discounted rates.

    The Louvre: The Louvre is the largest museum in the world and with 70,000+ priceless classic & modern masterpieces (including the Mona Lisa), it is the jewel in the crown of French culture. If you’re less than 26 years old, you can visit this enchanting museum for free on all Friday evenings (6 – 9.45pm), provided that you show your ID. In a stately palace that was once a royal residence, the Louvre Museum ranks among the top European collections of fine arts.

    Gardens of Versailles: These gardens are part of the Palace of Versailles. Spread over 800 hectares, the gardens are as popular a tourist destination as the royal palace. 210,000 flowers and 200,000 trees are planted annually in these beautiful gardens which are painstakingly maintained by more than 24 full-time gardeners. The most spectacular space in the palace is the Hall of Mirrors, where courtiers waited for an audience with His Majesty.

    Provence: land of lavender: Every summer, the seemingly endless ocean of lavender fields makes Provence one of the most beautiful not to mention, fragrant places to visit in France. Among the many attractions of Provence is its delicious Mediterranean cuisine, which is based on olive oil, vegetables, and aromatic herbs. The heavenly scented crop can be found almost everywhere in the region during this time.

    Other fascinating sites you may want to visit as an international student includes; Gorges du Verdon: the Grand Canyon of France; Carcassonne; Alsace Villages, where you will find some of the prettiest villages in France are tucked away in the green, rolling hills.
