Information from the Foreign Office about your trip to France:

I have visited beautiful France countless times in recent years. I actually drove the 1,800 kilometers from Nice via Marseille to Berlin. During a one-off work trip to Paris for three weeks in April 2016, I had the opportunity to get to know the city extensively. At EURO 2016 I was in Lille and Paris to watch the German team's soccer games. This huge European country has been my travel destination several times in recent years.
