French Sightseeing Vocabulary

On this page you’ll find a complete list of French sightseeing vocabulary words. Overall these words are not too complicated and don’t take too much time to learn. Please pay close attention to the difference between “le guide” and “la guide“. “Le guide“, in the masculine form means “guide book” while “la guide” in the feminine form means “tour guide”. Finally, please note the heavy usage of the word, “visiter” in French. Unlike the English meaning of the very “to visit”, “Visiter” means to take or go on the tour in French.
