Our France Ambassador Annika Bourgogne lives in Alsace and knows the region well. Alsace has a very interesting past – it changed nationality 5 times in 75 years! This has resulted in a unique local culture which – along with amazing scenery and delicious food and drink – makes it a great place to visit.
The history of Lyon goes back to Astérix: it was founded by Romans and the capital of Gaul. Today the number 2 city of France in many ways, it remains the gastronomical capital of France says Annika.
