frParis, France

The dream city, the world capital of romance, the instantly recognized French classic, the destination that's "always a good idea" - the list of epithets to inimitable Paris is simply everlasting! When referring to town, the imagination instantly draws the graceful silhouette of the Eiffel Tower majestically dominating the Champ de Mars, monument-lined boulevards with croissant-scented bistros, and adorable tour boats peacefully floating down the Seine. Paris is all about the good old classics like the majestic Notre Dame, about the iconic architecture of the Palace of Versailles, about chic boutiques, tastefully decorated homes, and, of course, the haute French cuisine and top-class Michelin-starred restaurants. Plus, Paris has been home and an infinite source of inspiration for hundreds of artists, creators, and philosophers who've set their hearts on the Montmartre district and turned the city into one of the planet's greatest art repositories, topped by the incomparable Louvre. We bet you have at least once dreamt to immerse in the exceptional atmosphere of sparkling Paris and to learn the art of living a-la French, haven't you?...

frBayeux, Normandy, France

Set away from the main France tourist trails, the fascinating town of Bayeux is still an important spot for exploring local history. Being an ancient Norman hub and boasting a favorable location by the sea, Bayeux has long-played one of the leading parts in the destiny of the region. Though today the strategic significance is not its crucial point, the cultural value of Bayeux is hard to overestimate. Any Bayeux exploration is reminiscent of a trip to the Middle Ages as you stroll along the narrow cobbled streets, gloomy yet solemn Gothic churches, surrounded by small half-timbered houses and petite stone bridges. The most vivid evidence of the city's glorious past is the stunning 13th-century Bayeux Cathedral, majestically towering the city and being the most recognizable Bayeux building. Craving for even more outstanding discoveries? Don’t forget to visit the museum housing the 70-meter long Bayeux Tapestry, created in the 11th century and illustrating the Norman conquest....
