Spending one week in France might seem just plain inadequate given the number of bucket-list destinations in the country. But there is a lot you can experience in that time if you make some smart choices. Combine a city or two with a region during your short trip. Give Paris a skip if you have already done it and go on a ski vacation in the French Alps, in Courchevel or Chamonix. Spend a few days exploring the vineyards of Loire Valley, or mingle with the jet set in Monaco and Cannes. Figure out for yourself all you can do during 7 days in France with our tours below.
