Situated in the heart of Europe, just a two-hour train journey from London, France is one of the world’s leading travel destinations. France hosts Europe’s fourth-largest number of cultural UNESCO World Heritage Sites and receives 83 million foreign visitors annually. Its capital city, Paris, is France’s largest city and main cultural centre. It is home to the world’s finest museums and monuments, including the Eiffel tower, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre – the most visited art museum in the world! A meander down the Champs Elysees leaves no guesses as to why Paris is the fashion capital of the world, home to French fashion houses such as Chanel and Dior alongside a vast range of international shops. With its buzzing café culture, Paris is the perfect place to enjoy a freshly baked croissant whilst soaking up this city’s vibrant atmosphere.
France is the largest country in Western Europe with a varied geography. Due to its climate, France is one of the world’s great wine producing countries, most famously from the regions of Burgundy, Champagne and Bordeaux. The Alps stretch across eastern France, making it a fantastic destination for endless leisure and outdoor activities, such as skiing and snowboarding in the winter and hiking, mountaineering and biking in the summer. France also boasts 200 miles of coastline with picturesque beaches and coastal villages. The beauty of three rock arches naturally carved from the white cliffs of Etretat are a popular tourist destination in Normandy on the northern coastline of France. The quintessential summer playground of the French Riviera lies to the south on the Mediterranean Sea. Here the glitz and glamour of Cannes, Nice and Monte Carlo meet the lyrical landscapes of medieval towns and picturesque fields of lavender that inspired the work of Chagall and Picasso.
