For many people, the term ‘high-culture’ is synonymous with France. From the cuisine to the priceless works of art at the Louvre, France has a long tradition of “the finer things.” Theatre, music, and dance are cornerstones of French culture, and cinema has its roots in the central city of Lyon.

Paris is renowned for its myriad historic monuments and having numerous unique neighborhoods known as arrondissements. Venturing outside of Paris, travelers will find that the countryside can take on many different forms: laid-back Atlantic coastline, rolling hills and valleys known for producing some of the best wine in the world, the arid south with its warm Mediterranean climate, and the mountainous Alps region.

There are many opportunities for artistic expression, whether in the form of lively street performances, or in the historic theaters that crowd the cities. No matter your artistic discipline you will find yourself at home in France.
