Answer #1 Perhaps the most famous of France's cultural landmarks is the Eiffel Tower. There are the fashion shows that feature the suits of Chanel, the shoes and purses o…f Aignier, and the outfits of St. Laurent. There's the film festival at Cannes. There are French cars, such as the Deux Chevaux. There are the historic cathedrals, such as Chartres and Notre Dame. There are the motorized bikes of college students. There's the obelisk from ancient Egypt, to remind the world of France's role in deciphering the hieroglyphics of ancient, pharaonic Egypt. There are the open-air book and print sellers, cafes, markets and parks. There are the old noble and royal palaces, such as at Versailles. There's the regional identities of the Cathar country around Toulouse, and of the fishing villages of the Basque country and of Brittany. There are Roman ruins, such as amphitheaters and aqueducts. There are the statues to Marianne, in memory of the French Revolution. There's the vehicular access to the tunnel under the English Channel. There are universities, such as the Sorbonne of Paris, and the Universite d'Aix-en-Provence. There are the vendors of newspapers and of roasted chestnuts. There are vineyards. Answer #2 Bordeaux in the south-west of France is known for its wine, and obviously Paris in the north with the Eiffel tower and l'Arc de Triomphe. Also, along the coast there is lots of surfing.
French cuisine has evolved extensively over the centuries. Starting in the Middle Ages, a unique and creative national cuisine began forming. Various social movements, politic…al movements, and the work of great chefs came together to create this movement. Through the years the styles of French cuisine have been given different names, and have been codified by various master-chefs. During their lifetimes these chefs have been held in high regard for their contributions to the culture of the country. The national cuisine developed primarily in the city of Paris with the chefs to French royalty, but eventually it spread throughout the country and was even exported overseas. France's famous Haute Cuisine ("high cuisine") has foundations during the 17th century with a chef named La Varenne. As author of works such as Cvisinier françois, he is credited with publishing the first true French cookbook. His book includes the earliest known reference to roux using pork fat. The book contained two sections, one for meat days, and one for fasting. His recipes marked a change from the style of cookery known in the Middle Ages, to new techniques aimed at creating somewhat lighter dishes, and more modest presentations of pies as individual pastries and turnovers. Late 18th century-19th century the revolution was integral to the expansion of French cuisine, because it effectively abolished the guilds. This meant that any one chef could now produce and sell any culinary item he wished. The era of the French Revolution, however, saw a move toward fewer spices and more liberal usage of herbs and refined techniques French cuisine was codified in the 20th century by Georges Auguste Escoffier to become the modern version of Haute cuisine. Escoffier's major work, however, left out much of the regional character to be found in the provinces of France. Gascon cuisine has also been a great influence over the cuisine in the southwest of France. Ingredients and dishes vary by region. There are many significant regional dishes that have become both national and regional. Many dishes that were once regional have proliferated in variations across the country. Cheeses and wine are a major part of the cuisine, playing different roles regionally and nationally with their many variations and Apellation d'origine controlée (AOC) (regulated appellation) laws.
One of the most fun of the French cultural activities is celebrating Bastille Day, each July 14th, in memory of the French Revolution. Another fun French cultural activity is… choosing fresh foods such as bread from the bakery, and produce from the open-air markets. Still another fun French cultural activity is getting a month's vacation in August. Yet another fun French cultural activity is having weekend fun in the country during the spring, at the beach in the summer, on a hilly hike in the fall, and at a ski jump in the winter. And yet another fun French cultural activity is preparing for the year's end Christmas-New Year holidays with roasted chestnuts. add from a fenchman: if you ask a fenchman about "bastille day" he will never understand becaus we never say that, just say "le 14(quatorze) juillet".

Cultures evolve within groups of people based on many elements of those people's lives, such as family duties and responsibilities, community needs, physical location, and bel…ief systems of the group. You yourself have your own culture based on your place within the larger group within which you live. You may not recognize it as a culture if you've never lived among another group of people or in another place. When people come into your culture from another culture, that's when you notice that there is a difference. Cultures show where they are from and hold that in their Heritage.
