France is synonymous with glamour and chic. From North to South, it offers beautiful ports, wonderful nature and a cultural, architectural and culinary culture among the most fascinating in the world. It is a regular port of call on our Mediterranean cruise. Our Costa cruises to France include both the major northern ports and the charming Mediterranean ports. And wherever we go, whatever we do, whatever place we visit, a kind of lightness accompanies us. The people we meet are so accustomed to living in such beautiful places that they almost cease thinking about it, whereas whenever we come ashore, we’re overwhelmed by the majesty of these places: whether in Nice or Marseille, with the delightful Provence inland, Bordeaux, Nantes, Calais or Le Havre, on the English Channel at the Seine estuary or Paris, the dream of every couple in love and also of every traveller: holidays in France are always fantastic. And let’s not forget the food, cheese, sweets, wine, cognac or calvados: this holiday is joie de vivre.
