Discover France by Train

France is renowned for priding itself on its rich culture and treasure trove of a historical repertoire; all of which continue to rank it as a top tourist destination since the inception of railway travel in the early 19th century.

The French Railway System (SNCF) was founded in 1928 during an era where cars were becoming more popular than trains. Due to this, the SNCF sought out on its mission to encourage tourism and train transport to cut down on harmful automobile emissions and traffic. They did this by commissioning some of France's top artist to embark into a newfound realm of captivating travel posters.

This gorgeous 1952 "Discover France by Train" poster was designed by artist Jules Cavaillès to encourage tourism to one of Europe's most sought after destinations. French born artist Cavaillès does an expert job at illustrating Paris's iconic city center in soft primitive detailing. From the glorious Arc du Triomphe to the gentle detailing on the Eiffel Tower, we don't know what we love more! Fabulous work by Cavaillès.

SNCF posters are so renowned for their beauty that they are highly-collectible by Francophiles worldwide! This dreamy Parisian poster is the perfect addition to your favorite space.
