La Bella France! Gayest and most piquant of nations, whose Paris is the best loved city in the whole world. The President Liners bringing hundreds of happy passengers to Europe by the Westward Route Round the World land them at Marseilles for trips thru France... to Central Europe... and to the British Isles.
The Valley of the Rhone ... the shops of the Place Vendome ... the cabarets of Montmartre ... the boulevards ... the Louvre ... the cathedrals and the chateaux of this famous land! All these you have been waiting for!
Each year more people are going Round the World to Europe. After you have seen the continent you will want to return to America on the President Liners for they sail over the smooth, sunny Southern route thru Gibraltar to New York.
