About France
Capital city: Paris

France knows how to do tourism, and does it well. With year round appeal, it’s a global success with holidays to suit all the family. With easy access via train, plane, and ferry, it’s an attractive option for many different types of holiday. The capital Paris sparkles with heritage and culture and the eye is easily drawn to the major landmarks such as The Louvre and Arc De Triomphe. No visit would be complete without soaking up the romance at the Eiffel Tower, or you could take a short train ride to the different but equally magical Disneyland Paris. France is full of contrasts, so away from the capital, you’ll find charming vineyards (and plenty of champagne), rustic farmhouses, and miles of beautiful beaches on the French Riviera. Whether you opt for duty free in Calais, a city break exploring Lille, or skiing in the Alps, it is bound to be incredible!


The world famous Tour De France cycle race has taken place here for over 100 years.
