France is a mecca for diversity, sharing its borders with Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Andorra, Monaco, and England across the Channel.

Outstanding architecture is standard to the French, with beautiful and ornate structures like the Notre Dame de Paris, famous for its grandeur and a source of inspiration for Hollywood. Beginning of construction of Notre Dame was started in the 12th century but was not completed until almost two centuries later, adding the famous flying buttresses for structural support.
Château de Chambord is a dizzying monument to ambitious French architecture located in Loire Valley. Originally built as a hunting lodge by François I, it quickly escalated into a 440 room mansion, sporting 365 fireplaces and 84 staircases, one in the shape of a double helix reportedly designed by Leonardo di Vinci himself.
The climate in France is generally very mild and pleasant, with mild summers and winters across most of the country, including the city of love, Paris. Along the borders, however, the seasons tend to have hotter summers and colder winters, with snow icing the Alps, making it perfect for winter sports.
