Welcome to the new FranceToday.com. After many months of work, we are thrilled to debut the new look for France Today’s website. Founded in 1985, France Today has continuously published the latest travel, culinary, cultural and art news for over three decades. A team of veteran journalists continues to uncover fascinating stories – not just from Paris but also from the farthest, most remote corners of the Hexagon. We hope that our newly unveiled website showcases this fine reporting in the best possible way.

Our goal is to optimize the reader experience with an improved website navigation which makes it easier than ever to search for relevant articles. We are perhaps most excited about the interactive map tool—beautifully rendered by artist Bek Cruddace. You can search the map by Region, Hot Spot, Department, and Key City. Planning a trip to Normandy? Find the latest stories and hotel reviews from specific places like the Calvados department or the city of Rouen.

We’d also like to highlight the Events Calendar. Click on “What’s On” in the top navigation panel and you can search by month, location and category to find interesting things to do, see, and experience in France. Musical festivals, art exhibits, culinary events and more…

The Directory is another useful feature. Search for holiday accommodations, hotels, and specialty boutiques—from florists to apparel—for your next shopping adventure.

As always, we highly value our reader feedback, and welcome your questions and comments. Don’t hesitate to leave a comment or get in contact here. Enjoy the new website!

  1. Site looks great! Is there an English translation of the calendar?
    I am looking for information on Avignon and Arles; and
    Amiens and its floating gardens. Wondering what Amiens is like in September?
