Vive la France!
From museums to bubbly, these French contributions to the world are one-of-a-kind.
With the Eiffel Tower’s recent re-opening after a year of craziness, Paris may be back on your travel wish list. And there’s so much more to see in the City of Light than just every tourist’s favorite charm bracelet bauble… Google Arts & Culture tells the story of that “other art museum” that give the Louvre a run for its money. Travel through time to see how the magical Musée d’Orsay came to be – from why the roof of this former train station was revolutionary to how the site was rescued from demolition. And for a peek into this truly unique landmark, take a quick video stroll around the stunning galleries with Explore France. Magnifique!

With Business Insider, pay a visit to Champagne, France, to learn the secrets behind why they can charge us so bloody much for their famous export. From the climate & lack of machinery to the impact of world events, the steep price tag will make more sense…even if your wallet still feels the pinch!
