Guide to cruising in France
France is renowned for gastronomy, fashion, history and its contribution to the world of art. It is also laden with world-famous monuments, landmarks and architecture. Examples of all of this can be found along the Seine as it passes from rural scenes to quaint towns, with stunning architecture, half-timbered houses, and typical French cafés.
The key destination for any discerning visitor to France is, of course, Paris. The capital is a haven for tourists, allowing them to wander through historically significant areas, see spectacular monuments, sample gastronomic delights and discover stunning works of art.
