Brimming with life, color and character, the port city of Marseille boasts a bustling coastline, quaint fishing villages and a rich past that makes it an important historic and cultural hub in the heart of Provence.

One of Marseille’s popular attractions is the prominent Notre-Dame de la Garde that sits on top of a hill, offering spectacular views of the city. Head over to Marseille’s lively Vieux Port (Old Harbor) where colorful fishing boats dock and where fresh seafood abounds.

About a 20-minute ferry ride from the Old Port, you can reach Château d’If, an imposing 16th century castle turned prison. If Château d’If sounds familiar, it is because it’s one of the settings for Alexandre Dumas’ novel, The Count of Monte Cristo.

3. Nice


Be it summer or winter, the 7-km long Promenade des Anglais is an immensely popular tourist spot.

Nice reigns as the capital of the French Riviera, attracting around 5 million tourists each year to its pristine Mediterranean beaches and vibrant town squares.

The vast 7-kilometer stretch of Promenade des Anglais (The English Promenade) offers magnificent views of the sea, making it popular for beach goers and those who want to taste authentic French cuisine in front of a superb scenery.

Wander around the cobblestone streets of Nice’s Old Town and let its old-world beauty and brightly colored buildings transport you to the 1700s. See the town come to life when outdoor markets open, showcasing a rich array of fruits, flowers, arts, antiques and crafts.

Tucked away from the city, the St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Cathedral stands out with its colorful domes and unique shape, evident of its old Russian architectural style. Its tranquil setting and lush gardens are perfect if you want to take it slow for the day.

4. Toulouse

Toulouse earned the nickname ‘The Pink City’ (La Ville Rose) because of the pinkish hue of its terracotta brick buildings. Steeped in history, the 2,000-year-old city offers plenty of historic and cultural sites, including museums with enviable art collections that transcend eras.

Among these are the Musée des Augustins, a fine arts museum exhibiting artwork from the Middle Ages to the 20th century; the antiquities museum of Musée Saint Raymond, where you can find artifacts from ancient times; and the Muséum de Toulouse, a natural history museum housing over 2.5 million displays.

If you’re an aviation fanatic, then you’d love Toulouse even more! Marvel at life-size models of the Ariane 5 rocket launcher, the Mir space station, and Soyuz spacecraft at Cite de l’espace, a massive space theme park situated just outside the city center.

Your next stop is Aeroscopia Museum where you get the rare opportunity to see inside the cockpit of the turbojet-powered supersonic Concorde. Other highlights include the Caravelle, Super Guppy and Airbus A300.

5. Reims


Gardens of Notre-Dame de Reims. Known in English as Reims Cathedral, it is where 30 French kings were crowned from 1027 to 1825.

Reims, the undisputed world capital of Champagne, is home to renowned Champagne houses, including Taittinger, Veuve Clicquot and Ruinart, the oldest Champagne house.

Although Reims is widely popular for the bubbly drink, its myriad of historic sites and landmarks make it equally popular with history aficionados. Visit the majestic Gothic Reims Cathedral (Notre-Dame de Reims) where 30 kings of France were crowned from 1027 to 1825, earning Reims the title “the Coronation City.”

Follow tradition and head to the opulent Palais du Tau next, where French coronations were celebrated afterward with a lavish feast in the grand main hall.

Fancy cars? Musée Automobile Reims Champagne will not disappoint! It chronicles the 20th century history of the automobile industry through a collection of 230 cars and motorbikes dating from 1908.

For art lovers, the Musée-Hôtel Le Vergeur (Le Vergeur Museum Hotel) where creations of Hugues Krafft are displayed is a must. The Renaissance mansion turned museum includes other noted artworks such as the L’Apocalypse and La Grande Passion by Albrecht Dürer.

Lying in north of Burgundy is the lovely city of Auxerre, one of France’s official Towns and Lands of Art and History. The Auxerre Cathedral easily dominates the city’s landscape, making it one of Auxerre’s most popular landmarks. The Gothic cathedral is famed for its sculptures, stained glass windows and frescos which date as far back as 11th century.

Another highlight is the ornately designed Tour de l’Horloge, the city’s 15th-century clock tower that amazes tourists with its unique solar and lunar movements.
