France is a beautiful and culturally rich country. It is also a great place to go if you are looking for a reasonable level of rugby, football and tennis. A short flight, ferry, Eurostar or Eurotunnel crossing away, France is an ideal “hop” from the UK. Aside from the iconic sights of Paris, this country offers a diverse range of cities showcasing dfferent sporting and cultural experiences. Consider visiting northern France, taking advantage of the Eurotunnel or various ferry crossings, or travel south towards Bordeaux, Lyon and Marseille by plane or train.
