France - moving around the country
In France, buses are considered to be an excellent means of transportation, not only for intercity travel, but also for intra-city travel. In large cities, you will find almost at every stop a timetable which indicates the time of departure of the train you are boarding as well as other departed trains. Prices for trips vary based on the destination and season. It should be noted that in different regions there are separate transport network of buses or trams, with each having its own unique pricing system. You can buy tickets from the driver or in the newspaper kiosks. Please note that in the capital of France you can move about by using underground trains. The Metropolitan has 17 main branches that connect all areas of Paris, as well as 5 suburban branches that go beyond the capital.
Nature and parks of France
Between Grenoble, Briancon and Gap is the national park of Ecrins, in the territory of which there are at once 3 four-thousandths - Barre-des-Ecrins, Dome de Neige des Ecrins and Peak Lorik. The area of the park is occupied by pine and oak forests, alpine meadows; glaciers are located on the hills. There are more than 30 trails laid in the park which are in excellent condition. On the island of Corsica is the Kalanka National Park. It is a deep valley filled with the sea. The valley is surrounded by orange and pink rocks, which spectacularly rise above the sea line at an altitude of about 300 meters. The rocks were heavily eroded, and therefore took quite original and unusual forms. This unique and incredibly beautiful landscape is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
