Traditional French cuisine is considered some of the best (cheeses, pastries, breads) in the world, and – as you could imagine – each region has its own distinct flavors. In Paris, you will find all types of French food, from coq au vin to soufflés, and in Nantes, fish in a beurre blanc sauce is popular. Head southeast to the French Riviera, and you’ll taste ratatouillesalade Niçoise, and cuisine that’s influenced by the Mediterranean and the nearby Sea in Nice and Arles.

“All in all, studying abroad was a terrifying, exciting, painful, amazing experience, and I am very glad I did it. It was not easy, but now that it’s over, I can’t wait to travel again, to have similar experiences in other places in the world.”
