ATTRACTIONS

Eiffel Tower, Paris

The Eiffel Tower is the most famous monument in the world, with over 7 million visitors a year it is the most visited monument that you have to pay for in the world. The tower stands 1,007feet high (307m). Built by Gustave Eiffel in 1889 for the Great Exhibition, the tower was designed as a temporary installation, to be dismantled in 1910. However, due to its value as a wireless tower it remained. The views from the top looking out over Paris are spectacular and it\'s simple to pick out all the major landmarks.

Vieux Nice - Old Town, Nice

Vieux Nice is such a delight to explore on foot. As well as many beautiful buildings and squares, the old town is a maze of narrow streets. Tucked away down these are many small shops, restaurants & bars.

Le Suquet, Cannes

Le Suquet is the local name for the old city of Cannes which occupies the hill overlooking le Vieux Port. While possibly inhabited since pre-historic times, le Suquet traces its beginning to the 11th century when the land was donated to the abbey of îles de Lérins. Immediately afterwards, the construction of Château de la Castre, the fort on the hilltop, took place, and over time, a small town developed around the fort. 

Notre-Dame Cathedral, Strasbourg

The Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-Strasbourg is a beautiful example of late-Gothic architecture and sports one of the tallest church spires in the world. Inside, it has the longest nave in France. Originally planned to have two spires, the church never built the second spire, thus is appears to be unbalanced with one side jutted up to the sky. However, without this spire, the Strasbourg Cathedral would look a lot like the cathedral with the same name in Paris. This solo spire gives the structure character and a unique look.

Place du General de Gaulle - Grande Place, Lille

This very Flemish house on the Charles De Gaulle square is the headquarter the local newspaper \\\"La voix du Nord\". It also houses a big shopping center. The golden statues on top represent the 3 former provinces of the region : Artois, Flandres and Henegovia

Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde, Marseille

The Basilica Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde is on the highest hill in Marseille, 162 meters above sea level, so it can be seen from most places in the city and the harbor. It is a colorful, friendly church nicknamed the “good mother”. Even secular people tend to like it and feel that it casts a protective aura over the city.

Jacobins Church & Cloister, Toulouse

The Jacobean Church was begun in the 13th century by the Dominican Order of Preachers, which was founded in 1215 by Saint Dominique for the purpose of combating heresy.An unusual feature of this church is a large pillar in the middle, around which there is now a set of mirrors. This gives the illusion of looking into a deep hole, whereas what you are really looking at is the reflection of the pillar and the ceiling. 

Palais des Papes, Avignon

Palais de Papes is more fortress than palace, this mighty landmark with its crenelated facade and slit windows looms above Avignon, and is a UNESCO world-heritage site. The immense square in front is the impressive setting for the Avignon Festival. Built when Pope Clement V abandoned Rome in 1309 to settle in Avignon, it was the seat of papal power for 70-odd years, it actually combines two structures - the austere Old Palace (1334-42) and the extravagantly Gothic \'New Palace (1342-52). The interior is a maze of rooms, mostly empty but rich with Italian frescoes. 

The Palace of Versailles, Versailles

Versailles was saved from ruin by the decision of King Louis-Philippe in 1833 to transform the castle into a museum of the French history. He wanted to celebrate “all glories of France” as well of the \"Ancien Regime\", the Revolution, Empire and Restoration. 
Works were undertaken mainly in the south wing to transform the former apartments of the princes. The works were paid by Louis-Philippe in person.
