According to the rule analysis, using en for feminine countries and a for masculine countries, why is the correct answer for the question "la?" Je vais visiter la France cet ete. Should the sentence not be Je vais visiter en France?
Just to add to Maarten's answer, you cannot say -
You visit something. i.e.
j'ai visité le Louvre
You will use aller with different prepositions for, to visit countries
aller en France
aller aux Baléares
aller à Cuba
Hope that helps!
