Best places to see in France

Avenue Jean Médecin
Popular Areas
Pull&Bear, Zara, H&M – the gang’s all here! This lengthy pedestrian avenue is a hub for mid-range clothing brands and home to Nice Etoile Shopping Centre. However, if it’s cigars, champagne and caviar you’re after, hotfoot it to nearby Rue Paradis. Chanel, Gucci, Christian Louboutin, Mont Blanc, Kenzo, Versace and Dolce & Gabbana all reside here.
Accommodations near Avenue Jean Médecin
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
Promenade du Paillon
Parks
Think ‘urban garden’. This twelve-hectare public walkway went through a lengthy renovation recently, beautifying the heart of Nice. The results are fantastic - freshly mowed parkland that’s flanked by palms, pavilions and pathways that run deep into the city. Year round, the fountains erupt with water, making it a fun splash pad for kids and savvy skaters in summer.
Accommodations near Promenade du Paillon
Place du Marché Gayot
Popular Areas
Place du Marché Gayot – charmed, we’re sure. This square is filled with half-timbered houses and cobbled paths. It’s located at the heart of the historical centre, Place du Marché Gayot. Lick the mayo from your fingers after munching on fries from the Hidden Gherkin Café. The Gayot Bar is the best place to quench your thirst with an afternoon lemonade, or a mid-evening mojito.

Place du Capitole
Monuments
A people-spotting paradise. By day, Place du Capitole is a hubbub of activity. Locals hook up for a coffee or a beer, while political bigwigs dash about the palatial, pink-marble city hall. As night falls, the square shimmers with a golden hue that’s matched only by the gilded galleries of Salles des Illustres.
Accommodations near Place du Capitole
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.
