List of twin towns and sister cities in France

Map of metropolitan France

This is a list of places in France having standing links to local communities in other countries (or in other parts of France). In most cases, the association, especially when formalised by local government, is known as "town twinning" (though other terms, such as "partner towns" or "sister cities" are sometimes used instead), and while most of the places included are towns, the list also comprises villages, cities, districts, counties, etc. with similar links.
