Winter in France: Must-see attractions for the season

Metz (Mets) (Figure 2) It is the central city of the Lorraine region and the capital of the Moselle province. Located on the road from Rome to Reims, it has been a transportation hub since ancient times. The beautiful city of Metz is a gem of France. It is only a few hours away from Paris by high-speed TGV train and is close to other European countries such as Germany, Luxembourg, and Belgium. Although it is a city worth visiting all year round, many attractions are indoors, making it suitable for sightseeing even in cold weather. Annecy (Figure 3) If you travel to France in winter, there is a must-visit place, which is Annecy. Located in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in southeastern France, it is only about 42 kilometers away from Geneva, Switzerland. This destination is full of exciting activities all year round, but winter is the charming season for sightseeing. Surrounded by the French Alps, there are many ski resorts nearby for skiing holidays, including Semnoz ski resort, La Clusaz ski resort, and even Chamonix is not far away. Especially with the dreamy canals and iconic Lake Annecy, the other side of the lake is towering into the clouds. When you stroll along the old town to the lake, there is a thin layer of snow on the ground, which is really great. Mangtong (Figure 4) Those who want to spend winter in France without wearing a parka will love Menton. Menton, with its sunny weather, is located near northern Italy and has the most Mediterranean climate in the French Riviera. Bordeaux Bordeaux is a complete juxtaposition, managing to combine over 350 historical landmarks (second only to Paris in France) with modern design - some newer buildings and museums are stunning. Nice Nice is an excellent destination for French winter holidays. The capital of the French Riviera is a warm and sunny destination in the south of the country, with tourists all year round. Nice is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, with mild winters, and it's not too cold to stroll along the Promenade des Anglais and enjoy an ice cream. February is the Carnival of Nice, with beautiful parades in town. The nearby town of Menton also has a famous Lemon Festival (easy to reach from Nice for a day trip). Paris One of the best places to visit in France during winter is the capital city, Paris. Paris is always worth a visit, but in winter, it becomes even more magical! Everywhere you look, there are various decorations and winter activities, adding to the romantic atmosphere of the city - after all, this is Paris! Ice skating at the City Hall or under the Eiffel Tower - these are some of the best choices for a winter date in Paris. In addition, there is a lovely Christmas market along the Seine River and near the Eiffel Tower. Kolmar Colmar is an excellent destination for winter holidays in Europe. Colmar is a small town in eastern Alsace, France, famous for its picturesque half-timbered houses and is a must-visit place on the Alsace wine route. The Colmar Christmas market is actually composed of six different markets. They are all located in the old town, so you can easily walk from one market to another. It usually opens from mid-November to the end of December, attracting locals and tourists. Mont Saint-Michel Mont Saint-Michel is one of the most popular tourist destinations in France, on par with the Eiffel Tower. This small island is located in Normandy, about an hour's drive from the city of Rennes. Mont Saint-Michel is about one kilometer from the mainland and has only about 50 residents. The only way to get to the island is by walking on a pedestrian bridge, which takes about 40 minutes. A particularly popular destination is the Mont Saint-Michel Abbey, located at the highest point on the island and visible in every photo taken from the outside.
