France

This is the France that inspired countless artists, from Monet to Renoir.

The Mediterranean culture of the Riviera and the lavender fields of Provence were worthy subjects for generations of painters. In the Loire Valley, medieval castles evoke the depth of French history. In Paris, the monuments, art museums and fashionable streets blend bygone eras with the modern day.
