Why choose France for your cruising holiday?
France is the world's number one tourist destination. Every year, more than 80 million visitors come to discover our history, heritage, fine food and wine estates, or just to chill out and enjoy the fantastic scenery, leaving everyday life far behind. And the icing on the cake is that France's network of canals and rivers is one of the most extensive inland waterways systems in the world.
