Best places to see in France

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.

Le Pont Couvert (The Covered Bridges)
Landmarks
This series of bridges – one long and three small – make up the historic ramparts of the city. Canons and heavy artillery once protruded from the lower part of the bridge, used to protect the city from 14th century Prussian Invaders. These days, the bridges are the canvas for a series of twinkling lights that turn on at dusk, and the scene of romantic evening strolls.

The Barrage Vauban
Monuments
"The Bridges of Strasbourg County". Enter from the street, and you’ll have found a languid way to cross the River Ill. View it from a distance, and you’ll notice the details – like its tiny windows and graceful arches. The arches beneath the bridge conceal a series of sophisticated sluice gates. Once the gates rose, water flooded in to protect the city from invading forces.
Accommodations near The Barrage Vauban
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!
Accommodations near Notre Dame de Paris
Strasbourg Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Musée d'Art Moderne et Contemporain de Strasbourg)
Museums
Vibrant and eclectic. One of France’s largest collections walks you through the major artistic movements of the 20th century, from Impressionism to Art Nouveau and New Realism. The works on display are mainly European and include the usual suspects: Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Camille Pissarro. Enjoy the on-site café or head to the roof for the stunning views.
