While visiting Calais you must see the amazing white cliffs of Dover, visible even from Calais when the wheather is clear. The cliffs started to develop 130 million years ago when coccoliths begun to gather on the bottom of the sea and reached 100-120 meters height by today. During the history the city has always been the first defence line of England and the cliffs were considered a symbolical shield. Dover is on the other side of the English Channel and it takes only half an hour to get there with a ferry.
