The French Federation of European Cultural Itineraries

France, at the crossroads of Europe, is criss-crossed by cultural routes illustrating the ebb and flow of our continent.

Several of these routes formed their own federation, in May 2010, supported by the French ministries of the Culture and Tourism, whose article 9 promotes the development of cultural routes.

Today, the French Federation of the European Cultural Routes also includes Routes recognised by the Council of Europe as well as others, which respect the values of its charter.

Strong values : respect and solidarity, cooperation, responsibility and durability, collaboration, curiosity and openness, education and citizenship.
