France is the largest west-European country with a population of 66,000,000. Mainland France shares land borders with Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Monaco, Spain and Andorra. The busiest seaway in the world, the English Channel, separates France from England.
There are many ferry routes as well as the Channel Tunnel that connect France with England. Ferries from France also sail to the Republic of Ireland. From the south of France ferry services operate to Corsica, Sardinia and across the Mediterranean Sea to Tunisia.
Most ferries carry a combination of both tourist and freight traffic but some are dedicated to the carriage of freight traffic only. Some services are also operated by catamarans and other high-speed craft that may not accept all types of freight vehicles.
