France, in Western Europe, encompasses medieval and port cities, tranquil villages, mountains and Mediterranean beaches. Paris, its capital, is known worldwide for its couture fashion houses, classical art museums including the Louvre and monuments like the Eiffel Tower. The country is also renowned for its sophisticated cuisine and its wines. Lascaux’s ancient cave drawings, Lyon’s Roman theatre and the immense Palace of Versailles are testaments to its long history.
France like many countries also has a taste for popular sports and games such as football, tennis, and cycling. Football has the maximum number of licensed players and is considered by many as the national game of France.
