Food tourism in France allows you to eat and drink your way through the different regions of France, one adventure at a time, sharing in the culinary heritage and the cultural wealth of French gastronomy.

If you’ve ever planned a trip to France, you’ve definitely thought about all of the delicious food you’re going to find on your travels; buttery baked goods, glorious fresh seafood, masterful restaurant dishes… with so much to discover, why not make gastronomy the focus of the trip?
