France

France has had a greater influence on Western Culture
than almost any other country.
The Gothic cathedrals of Northern France and the chateaux of the French nobility, the French philosophers and playwrights of the Enlightenment, the novelists and painters of the 19th century, and the French film directors of the “New Wave” have all been admired and imitated around the world. France continues as a mecca for performing artists, painters, writers and intellectuals from every continent who are drawn by its many rich museums, its knowledgeable and appreciative audiences, and the prestige given to creative people in all fields.
The hills of France sprout world-famous vineyards, her forests blanket one‑fifth of her land, and her valleys bloom with flowers that produce her equally famous perfumes. Each region of the country boasts a distinctive cuisine contributing to a gastronomic mosaic of legendary repute.
