Things to know

Location and climate

The region le Midi de la France (French for southern France) is, as the name suggests, located in the south of France, more precisely the part of France below 45 degrees latitude. The region is extremely diverse. It offers both slightly mountainous areas of the foothills of the Alps and very mountainous areas of the Massif Central. The south of France has two sea entrances: on one side the rather calm Mediterranean Sea, on the other the rougher Atlantic Ocean. The urban centres such as Nice, Cannes, Marseille and Bordeaux are well known. Especially due to the multitude of different cultural and recreational opportunities, you can easily travel the region all year round.

Culture in all its facets

Marseille was together with the Slovak Kosice European Capital of Culture 2013 and still shines with smaller and bigger cultural events for every taste. Cannes enjoys world fame for its annual star run and the associated celebrity hype at the International Film Festival in May.

The world's largest pétanque tournament is held in southern France. Several thousand teams compete for the prestigious victory.

Top 5 travel tips

Culinary delights in Bordeaux

The city of Bordeaux, with about 250,000 inhabitants, is located in the northwest of the region of southern France, not far from the Atlantic Ocean. It is known worldwide for its exquisite wines of the same name. Bordeaux is one of the world's top culinary cities and offers exquisite delicacies. Bordeaux is like a reality that has become a city of the winged term "food like God in France". Numerous pubs and restaurants offer specialities à la Bordelaise. For the fish lover the Lamproie à la Bordelaise is recommended and the meat lover can enjoy an Entrecôte à la Bordelaise.

Port flair and museums in Marseille

Marseille, with its not quite 900,000 inhabitants, is the largest city in southern France and the second largest after Paris. Located on the Mediterranean Sea, it is home to France's most important port and is therefore one of the country's economic metropolises. In addition to a visit to the harbour, there are various museums to visit.

Medieval flair in Carcassonne

A visit to Carcassonne feels like travelling back in time to the Middle Ages. Since 1997, the imposing, towering fortress of the Cité de Carcassonne has been on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. The complex does not only look like this, it is almost alive, because the fortress is so large and well preserved that it is still inhabited as a central part of the city. Carcassonne has often enchanted as a backdrop for film productions - let yourself be enchanted by the unique medieval experience!

A touch of luxury in Nice

Nice is located on the Mediterranean Sea and not least with its magnificent beach promenade conveys a certain touch of luxury. The view over the sea and the yachts anchored in the harbour reinforces this impression, as does a short trip to the neighbouring, sophisticated Monaco with its famous casino and its glamorous overall appearance.

The world of stars in Cannes

Not far away from Nice, with its not quite 100,000 inhabitants, is the rather small Cannes, which however appears in the media every year in May on the occasion of the International Film Festival. Cannes is a beautifully situated port city with one of the most impressive promenades in the world. The walk there will probably be just as unforgettable as the stroll along the Boulevard de la Croisette. The two Cannes islands Saint-Honorat and Sainte-Marguerite invite you to a short and surprisingly inexpensive ferry trip.
