Do you know the French departments by their numbers? Test your knowledge with our quiz.

France is currently divided into 13 regions and 94 departments. Each department has a number and it can be very useful shorthand to know these if you are planning to live in France. For example, numbers are often displayed alongside department names on property listings e.g. Dordogne (24). Take our quiz to see how well you know the department names and numbers and where they are on the map.
