AttractionsEdit

ShoppingEdit

le Bon Marche is one of the larger shopping destinations in Paris. It's like most major department stores in that it has a main floor for cosmetics, a huge selection of fragrance and accessories. It also has floors for men, women and home. The selection is what's unique.

Exploring FranceEdit

The different areas of France

Metropolitan France is divided into 22 administrative regions. The capital city of each region is known as the Préfecture de Région. Some of the French regions, such as Alsace or Burgundy are modern day equivalents of historic provinces of Europe, others like Pays de la Loire are modern creations. The most populated French region is the Ile de France, the Paris region. The least populated is Limousin, in the hilly centre of France. Since France stretches from the North Sea to the Mediterranean, and from the Rhine to the Atlantic, the regions of France are very diverse, and each region has its own distinctive characteristics. For more information on each region see the Regions of France on the About-France.com guide to France
