These territories have varying forms of government ranging from overseas department to overseas collectivity. Metropolitan France covers 551,695 square kilometres and possesses a wide variety of landscapes, from coastal plains in the north and west to mountain ranges of the Alps in the south-east, the Massif Central in the south-central and Pyrenees in the south-west. At 4,807 metres above sea-level, the highest point in western Europe, Mont Blanc, is situated in the Alps on the border between France and Italy.
