We visited this beautiful historic medieval town many years ago while traveling through France by car. Carcassone is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its classic example of a medieval fortified town with a Gothic cathedral. Much work was done to restore this town in 1853 by architect Eugene Viollet-le-Duc, a founder of the modern science conservation. This video was produced by France TV Sports for the Tour de France 2014. Video taken with a drone.
Marseille is a port city and the second largest city in France, located on the southern coast of France. This video takes you on a fun hyperlapse and timelapse tour of the bustling port city set on the blue Mediterranean coast.
Mayeul Akpovi provides more details about his film:
There are some months I visited the city of Lyon and Rouen that I had the chance to capture on video. Here I am coming from a tour of the "Cité Phocéenne" (City of Marseille) in the south of France. A beautiful city at any point. Its architectural heritage, its geographical location and cultural diversity make it one of the most beautiful cities in France. Marseille is also the second largest city in France.
It may not be the time of year you would dream of traveling to Paris, but it's the best time to enjoy the city without the crowds.
Andrew Julian's story about his film:
Claire and I recently took a trip to France, and I filmed this during our time in Paris. Until this trip, I had only ever experienced Paris in the summer and I was struck by just how different the city is when most of us tourist are gone. We were equipped with our metro and museum passes and were able to easily access most places of interest without even waiting in line. It was incredible! We were even given a private tour of the École du Louvre. Thanks Elisabeth!
