France Tourism

The French welcome nearly 70 million visitors annually - there is so much to see. France fascinates with its splendid past and its graceful leaps into the future – the true mark of an alive, ever-changing nation. In the modern imagination, everything that is typically French is synonymous with culture, history and a certain contemporary flair. To the French it seems natural that such multitudes should flock to admire their beloved land resplendent with history, art, architecture and natural beauty.

From France’s sun-drenched vineyards and vibrant, cosmopolitan cities to its innumerable museums guarding priceless treasures in their sanctums, from the mouth-watering gourmet delights in its patisseries and restaurants to its intoxicating array of fine wines and champagne, France is a festival for the senses all the way.

Go - treat yourself!

It is evident that the French love their tipple - after dinner liqueurs like Grand Marnier, Cointreau, Triple Sec, Mandarine Napoleon, Cognac, Armagnac, Crème de Cassis and Chartreuse are produced in France besides of course the legendary wines! Incidentally France is the largest wine producer in the world.

A kiss or kisses (on the cheek) is the common way of greeting among the French between family and friends, and even between men. The number of kisses varies – if you are in Brittany then it is 1 kiss, 4 kisses if you are from Paris and up to 5 in Corsica!
