21 French Captions for Your Travel Photos

Need caption ideas for your travel photos in France, or another French-speaking country? Or you just want to change things up and infuse a little je ne sais quoi in your posts?

Do you also want a suggestion for a French caption that isn’t je ne sais quoi, c’est la vie, or la vie est belle? Then look no further. Here you’ll find 21 French captions you can use for all your best travel photos.


Sharing your travel photos is also sending warm wishes to friends and family back home. Simple greetings come in handy when you don’t have any other caption ideas!

Bonne Dimanche! Happy Sunday!

Sunday can be replaced by any day of the week obviously. Similarly, bon matin is good morning and bon soirée is good night.

Gros bisou de Paris! Lots of love from Paris!

If you like to think of your posts as postcards to your followers.

À bientôt, Paris! See you soon, Paris!

Substitute Paris for wherever you’re leaving behind. À bientôt is “see you soon.”

French expressions

Some of the captions on this list don’t translate literally, but they still encapsulate the same ideas about travel.

Paris et moi, c’était le coup de foudre.Paris and me, it was love at first sight.

Again, substitute for wherever you’re visiting. If you want to go even simpler with just “love at first sight” then only put le coup de foudre – and a heart emoji or two!

À couper le souffle. Breathtaking.

This one might come in handy once or twice along your adventures.

Je t’aime à la folie.I love you like crazy.

A reference to the French version of “(s)he loves me; (s)he loves me not” when picking off flower petals. Direct it toward a sight, a city, or even a whole country!


Quotes are longer, which means you run a higher risk of grammatical or spelling errors. You could also have less comprehension from your followers.

But if you really want to take your French captions to the next level, don’t be afraid to throw in a quote every now and then. These three are short and credited to famous French people.

Rester c’est exister mais voyager c’est vivre. To stay is to exist; to travel is to live.

A famous travel quote from French songwriter Gustave Nadaud.

Rien ne développe l’intelligence comme les voyages.Travel broadens the mind.

This one was made famous by French novelist Émile Zola.

Je ne regrette rien. I have no regrets.

A reference to classic French singer Edith Piaf and a great travel motto all in one.
