Watch the White Cliffs of Dover drift into the distance as you arrive in Calais. Brits would be mightily miffed if the French described Dover as simply a ferry port and Calais doesn't deserve that title either; it is much more than an industrial gateway into France.

It is home to a number of architecturally-interesting buildings, such as the ornate belfry, Notre Dame church, and Tour du Guet, a 13th century watchtower. The Côte d'Opale, or Opal Coast, runs from Calais and down the French coast and offers a number of glorious places in which to spend some time by the sea.
