Best places to see in France

Port of Nice
Marinas
Yacht-lot for the rich and famous. This is where tourist boats dock and Europe’s movers-and-shakers drop anchor for the weekend. Yet it’s also surprisingly low-key at times—its atmosphere swings wildly between ‘frenzied’ and ‘unhurried’. Admire the faded beauty of its Venetian-style houses, or enjoy fine dining and a lively bar scene around the docks.

The Pompidou Centre (National Museum of Modern Art)
Museums
This space-age building is definitely a pomp-a-do, not a pomp-a-don't. Former French President, Georges Pompidou, had this controversial building built in the 1960s. Love it or hate it, it's France's premier modern art gallery. Dali, Munch, Lucian Freud and Roy Lichtenstein have all adorned the walls (and spaces) in the past five years alone.

Jardin Japonais
Parks
Wind back the clock to ancient Kyoto. Start at the traditional red bridge, where cherry blossoms bloom in picture-postcard pink. Coyer visitors circle the koi fish and ponder life’s big questions. Early-riser yogis seek their own answers in the Zen-infused tea pavilion. Along the garden’s hilly inclines, let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic.
Accommodations near Jardin Japonais
Avenue Jean Médecin
Popular Areas
Pull&Bear, Zara, H&M – the gang’s all here! This lengthy pedestrian avenue is a hub for mid-range clothing brands and home to Nice Etoile Shopping Centre. However, if it’s cigars, champagne and caviar you’re after, hotfoot it to nearby Rue Paradis. Chanel, Gucci, Christian Louboutin, Mont Blanc, Kenzo, Versace and Dolce & Gabbana all reside here.
Accommodations near Avenue Jean Médecin
Promenade du Paillon
Parks
Think ‘urban garden’. This twelve-hectare public walkway went through a lengthy renovation recently, beautifying the heart of Nice. The results are fantastic - freshly mowed parkland that’s flanked by palms, pavilions and pathways that run deep into the city. Year round, the fountains erupt with water, making it a fun splash pad for kids and savvy skaters in summer.
Accommodations near Promenade du Paillon
Eiffel Tower
Monuments
Some say tower, others say upside-down ice-cream cone: there’s no denying the fact that the Eiffel Tower is one of the world’s most iconic buildings. Built for the 1889 World Fair, this iron-framed structure was the world's tallest until the 1930s. Brave the lines to enjoy windswept views of Paris, or a (costly) meal at the Jules Verne Restaurant.
