Dear friends from India,

France combines a strong identity with the great diversity of its cities and its countryside, which is the legacy of history. Beyond greater Paris, with its 12 million inhabitants and its vivid cultural, intellectual and economic life, a rich cultural diversity thrives in the French regions and cities: Lyon and Marseille as well as the splendid cities of Bordeaux, Toulouse, Strasbourg and Nice.

Welcoming 90 million foreign tourists annually, France is the world’s top tourist destination.

The number of visitors from India has been steadily growing over the last few years to record almost 8,00,000 travellers to France in 2018.

Indian visitors are spoilt for choice with an array of diverse experiences that are possible in French regions: the allure of visiting iconic monuments in Paris coupled with the city’s unmatched cultural life, chic seaside resorts in the South of France and beyond, and alpine escapades are some of the top reasons why France remains a preferred destination of choice for Indian travellers. With 55 million skier days sold, France is also the world’s top skiing destination.

A growing number of discerning Indian visitors are keen to explore France’s resplendent wine regions such as Bordeaux, Champagne, Burgundy and the Loire Valley. Wine tourism is one of our most dynamic industries, with 24 million visitors a year.

France is also perceived as the ultimate luxury shopping destination, with globally renowned brands such as Chanel, Dior, Vuitton, Hermès or Louboutin.

VAT-exemption for foreign tourists in France contributes to enhancing the country’s popularity as a shopping destination.

We invite you to Experience France !
