France is basically a rural country with very few large cities. Outside of Paris, only Lyons and Marseilles have populations of more than one million. It is also a country built primarily of stone, and each area (called a department) is very diverse. Observe the differences in architecture and different colours of the stonework in each area, and enjoy the specialities of cooking in each part of the country.
