This relates to:
Visiter vs rendre visite à = To visit a place vs a person -

There are several ways in French to express that you visited someone.


Marie rend visite à sa copine. -- Marie pays a visit to her friend.
Marie vas voir sa copine. -- Marie goes to see her friend.


Personally, I am not sure about "faire une visite". I guess it is OK but I don't know for sure. Aurélie would have to chime in on that.

Correction of a typo: "Marie va voir..." (not vas voir).


Sorry about that.....
