Calais

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.
Get out of town with these interesting Calais side-trips: Boulogne-sur-Mer (Nausicaa & Grande procession de Notre-Dame), Le Touquet Beach (in Le Touquet – Paris-Plage) and Musée du Louvre-Lens (in Lens). There's more to do: learn about all things military at La Coupole and kick back and relax at Calais Beach.

To see other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, read Calais sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Lille-Lesquin Airport, Paris Beauvais Tillé Airport and Deauville-Saint-Gatien Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
