Best places to see in France

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!
Accommodations near Jardin Royal
Louvre (Musée du Louvre)
Museums
During World War II, the Louvre’s treasures were hidden in remote corners of France. Most of the work has been faithfully returned, so you can gaze into Mona Lisa’s eyes through bulletproof glass, salute the mysterious Venus de Milo or bask in the preternatural glow of the Marie de Medici cycle. Fun fact: it would take you 100 days to visit every work of art for 30 seconds.
Accommodations near Louvre (Musée du Louvre)
Cimiez Monastery
Landmarks
This monastery-come-art-museum houses a skulk of Franciscan friars. Christian frescoes and masterworks by Matisse and Duffy in bold, joyous colours adorn the galleries, which also include three paintings by Louis Brea - the Crucifixion, Pieta and Deposition. The friars turn an ordered and harmonious hand to the landscaped gardens, which have achieved a fame of their own.

Galeries Lafayette
Shopping Areas
With a bit of work and some basic sewing skills, a small shard of fabric can one day become a quilt. In 1893, two cousins expanded their small tailor shop into what is today Europe's largest department store. The fashion collections here span three buildings and over 750,000 square feet of retail space, enough to justify a guided tour or a personal shopper for a fashion splurge.

MAMAC (Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art)
Museums
What’s in the box? One of Andy Warhol’s mysterious ‘time capsules’ was opened here recently. Old ads, dental moulds, nail clippings and the minutiae of Warhol’s life were among the box’s quirky contents. Why? Just because. Get into the spirit of abstract art with works by Warhol, Yves Klein (founder of the nouveau réalisme movement) Lichtenstein, Miro and Haring.

Saint Sernin Basilica
Landmarks
Follow in the footsteps of ten centuries’ worth of pilgrims. Enter this brick-red rock under the Miègeville arch. It depicts Christ’s ascension and draws your gaze heavenward much like his Apostles. Inside, Sernin’s gleaming gold tomb beckons you forward. It sits behind the altar, encircled by a walkway that allows for up-close visits – even during mass.
