Comprising of 22 regions, France is a multiple entity. From the north to the south, the east to the west, the differences are so great that it is impossible to define the make-up of the country. Within the space of just a few miles, it isn't only the landscape which changes. Passing from one region to another means discovering new tastes, smells, sights and sounds. France's history comes to the surface through world-renowned monuments such as the Eiffel Tower, the Châteaux of the Loire Valley and Mont St. Michel. It is a past rich in developments, creations and innovations all of which we can follow in the museums of the Louvre, Orsay and the Pompidou Centre. Today too, France has a rich conviviality thanks to the spirit by which food and wine have been promoted to a form of art.
