Best places to see in France

Cours Saleya
Landmarks
Flowers and food, coming right up! If you're lucky, you’ll be visiting for the Nice Carnival in mid-February, when the whole city becomes awash with mimosas during the 'Bataille de Fleurs'. However, a stroll along this long pedestrian street anytime of year is a close second. Oriental lily, lilac and rose perfume the air, while vendors offer gobble-worthy gourmet delights.

Jardin Royal
Parks
Toulousains cherish this hybrid French-English garden. Start at the central Grand Rond fountain, then charter your own path around this quiet garden. Ginkgo and cedar trees sway like a guard of honour that shelters you from the city’s bustle. The garden’s motto could be: Liberty, Equality, Tranquillity. If only Robespierre chose garden shears over the guillotine!

Phoenix Park
Parks
Introducing Phoenix Park - home to black swans, meerkats, iguanas, caimans and a troop of hooting and hollering lemurs that enthral visiting children. This verdant park also contains Europe's largest greenhouse, which could be mistaken for Mother Nature's summer home – African succulents, Madagascan palms, tree ferns and foliage galore. Pack a picnic and bring the family!

Jacobin Church
Landmarks
This 13th-century church is a Gothic jewel, and its palm tree-esque ceiling is the crowning achievement. Crane your head back to see how a single, slender pillar props up the chapel roof above the altar. Linger on the star-shaped rib vaults that sprout out like branches. What a pity that no one knows who dreamt up this wondrous design.
Accommodations near Jacobin Church
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.

Notre Dame de Paris
Monuments
Victor Hugo's Quasimodo might not be lurking in the shadows, but that doesn't mean you can't! Explore every nook of this enormous cathedral, including the 13th-century organ. Head up the north tower to fully appreciate the impressive masonry, or admire it from outside – the stone gargoyles look like they're about to swoop down and grab your sandwich, so watch out!
