Best places to see in France

Museum Œuvre Notre-Dame
Museums
Some museums should be seen from the outside first. A series of stained glass windows salvaged from other nearby churches adorn the building. The most prominent is the “Head of Christ” which dates back to 1060, taken from a small church in Wissembourg. See the Gothic garden and animal sculptures, then head inside for an assemblage of decorative arts that crosses the ages.

European Parliament
Institutions
Natural habitat of diplomats, dignitaries and do-gooders. Members of the European Parliament gather here for plenary sessions over four days each month. The meetings are used to discuss proposals that affect Europe’s present and future. Take a guided tour of the chambers and the planetarium, or book up to three months in advance to observe a diplomatic debate in action.

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.

Place Masséna
Popular Areas
Chess, anyone? Place Masséna isn’t often the site of game playing, but the chessboard-patterned ground around the ‘Sun Fountain’ may inspire a spontaneous game of hopscotch. A giant nude statue of Apollo stands centre-fountain. The statue was restored after 30+ years in obscurity - the “League of Feminine Virtue” had earlier deemed it unsuitable for public viewing.
Accommodations near Place Masséna
Castle Hill
Parks
Don't go chasing waterfalls. Unless it’s a man-made waterfall that flows from the site of an ancient keep. Today, there’s not much left of the fort, but Castle Hill’s garden is a picture-perfect picnic spot. Sway with the coral-tree flowers and oleanders as you ascend the 300 steps, or take the free lift up to pour over the Old Town and Baie des Anges from atop the cascade.

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.
