Being a US or Canadian or Australian citizen, traveling to France as a tourist, you only need a valid passport, no visa.

Make sure that your passport's expiration date complies with the laws of your country and of France.

For most countries, your passport needs to be valid for at least 3 to 6 months beyond your last day in France.

At time of planning your trip, you should check the last update on your country's foreign services and travel website.

Rule is: as long as your drivers license is written in roman alphabet, it will be accepted by a car rental agency.

A wonderful trip through Provence and the Riviera planned and organized by Emilie. Stayed in lovely B&Bs and had enough scheduled activities and free time. Emilie provided lots of options of things to do and a complete package for the traveler. Would highly recommend!
