France highlights: culture, glamour and glorious sunsets

The South of France has long been one of the most glamorous destinations in the world. Your France cruise takes you to heart of this sophisticated society, with ports of call including Villefranche (Nice), Provence (Toulon), Marseille and Cannes, where you can pass many a happy hour people-watching as you sip your coffee at a pavement cafe. There is more to this part of France, than glamour though. Artists, such as Picasso and Matisse, were attracted by the beautiful landscapes and quality of the light, particularly those Mediterranean sunsets on the Cote d’Azur. Nice is the jewel in the crown of the French Riviera and wherever you look you will be assailed by its beauty; the light-bathed coastline, its historical architecture and the dramatic mountain backdrop. Further round the cost, in Marseille, enjoy the sights and sounds of the Vieux Port, where Marseille life is centred. Enjoy excellent French cuisine in one of the many chic restaurants and then soak up the history of France’s oldest city with our Mediterranean cruise deals

Weather & what to pack

With the best weather in France, the average summer temperature in the south of France is 30 degrees Celsius, so it’s hot but not unbearable so. Sunshine is guaranteed and you should pack shorts, t shirts and flip flops. August can whip up short-lived summer storms so a rainproof jacket could prove useful – although you might prefer to seek shelter in a café bar until the sun reappears.
