It should come as no surprise that France is the world's most popular holiday destination. From famous cities such as Paris, Rouen and Amiens, to the dramatic cliffs and beautiful beaches of France's northern coastline, not to mention its fantastic artistic heritage, France has everything a tourist could ask for.
If food and drink are more your thing, then be sure to follow Normandy's celebrated Cheese and Cider Route, stocking up on camembert, Pont L'Évênque, Calvados and cider along the way. You could also head a little further south to the most magical theme park in Europe: Disneyland® Paris. Our port in Dieppe is our closest port to Paris, making it the ideal starting point for your journey.
