Best places to see in France

Musée des Augustins
Galleries
This old Augustinian convent is a sanctuary for salvaged sculpture. The Romanesque collection contains the 12th-century remnants of the Daurade monastery. Among its capital carvings, you’ll witness one of the very first Judgment Day depictions. Visit the Gothic hall for the immaculately restored Our Lady of Grace, which radiates a rare, delicate beauty.

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.

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.
Accommodations near Cours Saleya
Grand Palais
Landmarks
As any event manager knows, any exhibition is immediately enhanced by placing a 775,000-square-foot metal structure above it. This was the idea in turn-of-the-century Paris, when the Grand Palais was constructed for the Universal Exhibition in 1900, a kind of world fair for European capitals. Every year, 2 million visitors stroll through more than 40 huge events.
Accommodations near Grand Palais
Musée d'Orsay
Museums
In the halcyon days of the early 19th century, the Impressionists painted moments of beauty that were forever frozen in time. Get swept away by the romantic beauty of Impressionism at this museum, one of the world’s greatest odes to modern art. Van Gogh's "Starry Night Over the Rhone" is part of the dazzling collection on display in this former train station.
Accommodations near Musée d'Orsay
Place Garibaldi
Landmarks
Place Garibaldi is iconic Nice. The namesake of this monumental square is a general who unified Italy centuries ago. Yet it’s the whimsical arcades and canary-coloured baroque buildings that make this square so iconic. Circle the square beneath the vaulted arches, eat socca (a crêpe-like food specific to Nice), or mimic the statue of Garibaldi's strident pose.
