Monday marks France's national pavilion day at the Shanghai World Expo where the sights, smells, tastes, sounds and feel of the romantic nation will be on display.

The French National Pavilion was named "the Sensual City" where visitors can find a "white palace" floating above the water far ahead. Inside the pavilion, Paris's Orsay Museum has loaned 7 masterpiece paintings from its national collection, including Jean-Francoi Millet's "The Angelus", Edouard Manet's "The Balcony", and Vincent Van Gogh's "The Dance Hall in Arles."

Famous French actor Alain Delon will act as the pavilion's spokesman to talk about his close ties with China at the "French Pavilion Channel," specifically set up for the exhibition.
