The Rough Guide to France is brimming with carefully curated information and inspiration to help you squeeze every last drop out of your Gallic gallivanting.

And with France being the world’s gastronomic capital, we’ve got the lowdown on all the foodie fun, from Parisian neo-bistros and Lyon bouchons to champagne-quaffing in Épernay and Périgord’s hearty country cooking.
