  • City overview minus-thick plus-thick

    Rennes, the capital of the region of Brittany is in northwestern France, is 1.5 hours from Paris with a new high speed train. The city was voted ‘best student city’ by L’Étudiant magazine in 2016 and ‘most liveable city in France’ by L’Express in 2018. It is also known to be one of the most festive cities of France, investing heavily in arts and culture, and hosting several festivals. The young demographic of the city (over a quarter of its residents are students) contributes to the city’s vibrant nightlife and festive spirit in the community. The famous Musee des Beaux-Arts, home to pieces by Rubens, Gauguin, Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo is well worth a visit.

  • Country overview minus-thick plus-thick

    France, officially the French Republic or République Française, is a country in Western Europe bordered by Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Andorra, and Spain. The capital city of Paris is the country's largest city and main cultural and commercial centre. Other major urban areas include Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Lille and Nice.

    France has a population of around 65.1 million people, ranking 22nd in the world. The official language is French, but the central location of this country makes it likely that you’ll hear many different languages, and be understood perfectly well in English. France is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful and romantic countries in the world. It is also the world's most visited country with 86 million annual visitors - more than its own total population! International travellers flock to France to explore cultural centres such as Paris and Strasbourg, sample the fine foods and wines, enjoy the beaches and see the French Alps. If you have an interest in art, food, architecture, literature and fashion, Paris is a must-see. There are also many other cities such as Toulouse and Marseille that expand upon the attractions Paris has to offer, each with their own respective aesthetic. Despite France’s reputation for city life, approximately 80% of France is countryside, dotted with picturesque villages. You easily spend years trying to discover all France has to offer, however it’s worth remembering that when in France you will be just a short tunnel ride to the UK, and within easy reach of all Europe has to offer.

    Did you know?

    France, with its overseas territories, has 12 time zones, the largest number of any country. 'Le Procope' in Paris, which opened in 1694, is the oldest café or coffee shop in the world.
