Culture is an important aspect of France’s image in the world. This image is connected with the use of the language in international institutions and its important cultural heritage. This heritage is very varied: towns, historical monuments, listed sites, ancient sites and religious sites, castles, urban or natural sites, most are open to visitors. Either public or private, these places attract a large number of visitors from around the world which make France one of the main destinations for world tourism.
Il is also well known that gastronomy is inseparable from the cultural life of France. There are restaurants for all budgets which offer “local” cuisine (French traditional). France has many high-quality regional products, some of the best known being its wines and cheeses.
