Tourist Office Information – France and Belgium – Day-tripper.net the web magazine for visitors to France.

Tourist Offices – all the regions of France

For cross channel day trippers, shoppers and visitors wanting information on tourism in French Regions, Departments, Cities and Towns.

The local or regional tourist office is always worth visiting when in France. They will have plenty of brochures and flyers about the region and local events.

The administration of France is divided into 22 regions, which are themselves sub-divided into 100 departments (96 in France and 4 overseas).
