Dear friends from India,

France combines a strong identity with the great diversity of its cities and its countryside, which is the legacy of history. Beyond greater Paris, with its 12 million inhabitants and its vivid cultural, intellectual and economic life, a rich cultural diversity thrives in the French regions and cities: Lyon and Marseille as well as the splendid cities of Bordeaux, Toulouse, Strasbourg and Nice.

Welcoming 84.5 million foreign tourists annually, France is the world’s top tourist destination.

France welcomes over 5,00,000 visitors from India annually, a number which has seen a steady increase in the last few years.

Indian Tourists enjoy diverse touristic experiences offered by France and its regions: the appeal of visiting iconic monuments in Paris, with the city’s unmatched cultural life, seaside resorts on the French Riviera and mountain retreats with the Alps are top reasons why the Indian traveller plans a holiday to France. With 55 million skier days sold, France is also the world’s top skiing destination.

Furthermore, there is an growing number of discerning Indian travellers who visit wine regions such as Bordeaux-Aquitaine, Champagne-Ardenne, Dijon-Burgundy and the Loire Valley. Wine tourism is one of our most dynamic industries, with 24 million visitors a year.

France is also perceived as the ultimate luxury shopping destination, with globally renowned brands such as Chanel, Dior, Vuitton, Hermès or Louboutin.

VAT-exemption for foreign tourists in France contributes to enhancing the country’s popularity as a shopping destination.

You are most welcome to come and discover France!
