Gate to the North
Overlooking the Strait of Dover, the narrowest point of the English Channel, Calais is a major port for ferry traffic between France and England as the closest French town to Dover. The White Cliffs of Dover are visible on a clear day from this city, which is the capital of the Nord-Pas de Calais department. For exquisite sightseeing, you can rent a bicycle from Les Vél'in at 35 stations--you can pick a bike at one station and leave it at another station. Go to the town hall to view sculptural works by the master artist Rodin, then explore shops and displays that relay how the Calaisiens have retained their internationally recognized knowledge of lace manufacturing. Calais is in Pas-de-Calais. Use our France online sightseeing planner to arrange the details of your trip to Calais and other destinations.
