Posted by on in All About France linky

Gosh am I glad I have something to keep me busy this morning...when this edition of All About France goes live my Teen will be sitting his first exam of the bac (A level equivalent - end of high school exams). I'm sure I'm more nervous than he is!  So here we are, the 29th edition of #AllAboutFrance, back to entertain me and keep my mind off exam fever, and hopefully entertain you too!

20 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in France to visit

Posted by on in Other

Exploring UNESCO World Heritage Sites has become something of a trend in our family over the past few years.  It’s something I’ve always done, albeit sometimes without realising, particularly when much younger, but now it’s something we actively seek out when travelling.  These sites have undergone a rigorous application process to gain their prestigious UNESCO World Heritage status and we want to see why.  Sites can be natural or manmade but not all are beautiful for the premise of the listing is that the place must be of special cultural or physical significance.  This means there are industrial sites, as well as sublimely beautiful natural sites and of course gorgeous buildings/monuments, and there are a huge amount of them: 1052 at time of writing, spread across 165 countries.
