France is one of our favorite destinations at Bus2alps. Whether you’re a city slicker or an outdoor adventurer, there are plenty of places to explore as a student traveling to France.
If you’re looking for an easy breezy destination, check out Nice. This Riviera town has plenty to do, with museums dedicated to Marc Chagall and Henri Matisse alongside beautiful beachfront walks.
Bordeaux is also an incredible place to explore through your palette. Not only is the food delicious across France, but this city has a rich wine heritage.
Even if you aren’t a wine drinker, Bordeaux is full of antique markets, a landmark 11th-century cathedral, pristine public gardens to relax in, and opportunities to stroll along the Garonne.
If you’re an outdoor kinda tourist, try camping in Provence — known for its picturesque lavender fields — or skiing in Chamonix, the home of the highest mountain in the Alps: Mont Blanc.
We couldn’t mention iconic and unforgettable student trips to France without talking about Paris — the city of love, literature, and all that is très chic.
The French capital is an easily walkable city, with plenty of historic areas to explore across the arrondissements.
For the literature lovers on our France student trips, we always recommend a Latin Quarter Walking Tour. We explore the Left Bank, which has inspired artists throughout time.
From Salvador Dali to Ernest Hemingway, this student hotspot is home to the Sorbonne, Shakespeare & Co bookstore, and the oldest cinema in Paris. Perfect for culture vultures!
If musicals are more your vibe, cancan through the Instagrammable streets and visit the Moulin Rouge on our Paris Montmartre Walking Tour.
