France′s compact size and diverse locales make it the perfect destination to explore by car. The authors of Frommer′s France′s Best–Loved Driving Tours have assembled the top twenty–five driving itineraries in France, each designed to exhibit a different aspect of the country. A tour around Normandy explores the legacy of D–Day with visits to D–Day landing sites, such as Pegasus Bridge and the Normandy Beaches, before moving onto resort of Clécy, an area full of mountains and lakes. Another Northern tour showcases British–influenced Brittany, with visits to the ruins of a Welsh abbey and the forest of Huelgoat, where ancient Celtic stones still stand. In the Dordogne area of Southwest France, prehistoric sites are revealed. A drive through the area takes you prehistoric limestone cave–dwellings, and Lascaux II, site of one the most famous Cro–Magnon cave paintings in the world. Farther on, you′ll come upon a subterranean river that you can explore by boat and pathway. Further down South, the authors have put together a fascinating drive through the Cote d′Azur. Feeling rich? You can gamble to your heart′s content in Monaco. Then for a change of pace, take a stroll through the Parc National de Mercantour, which is home to birds, butterflies and clusters of vivid alpine wildflowers. Majestic mountains, beautiful towns and Alpine ski resorts are just some of the features of a drive through the French Alps. Visit the mountain–rimmed Lake D′Annecy, ski the thrilling slopes of Val d′Isere and taste fresh Reblochon– a traditional goat cheese– on one of the farms outside La Clusaz. Nearby, you can drive through the Champagne Country, and in another tour, explore the spectacular palace and its grounds at Fontainebleu. You′ll enjoy all the top sights and then have the flexibility to enjoy the hidden pleasures of each destination. Our suggested routes include scenic detours and stops for spectacular views, easy walks, shopping, dining, and fun breaks for travelers with children. With dozens of driving tour options, detailed and color–coded maps, and exact, directions, distances and driving times, Frommer′s France′s Best–Loved Driving Tours is the only guide you′ll need to see the best of France by car.
