When thinking about a trip to France, many people feel a tightness in their chests, their breath catches, and their thoughts drift in a romantic direction. Usually, the last thought that comes to mind is, "No, it's insanely expensive!"
In reality, the cost of a package to Paris is not sky-high. For example, from cities like Berlin or Rome, two people can go for eight days, including flights and accommodation, for just 450 EUR. During this time, with any guided tour, you can explore the main attractions and find the most romantic place for a dinner for two.
However, France offers more than just romance. In the summer, a huge influx of tourists heads to the famous French Riviera. It's in this part of the country that vacation packages can be truly expensive, especially during the peak season. If you plan to visit here at the end of summer, be prepared to pay at least 730 EUR for two weeks.
If you're looking for inexpensive tours, exclude destinations like Corsica, Saint-Tropez, Marseille, as the price of a trip to these places in the summer is not affordable for everyone. The same can be said for ski resorts during the peak season. The best resorts can be quite pricey.
