Best French travel destinations and sights

The French towns and cities that have most to offer in the way of culture, sights and sites. In order to establish the "best places to see in France", we have taken into account a number of criteria, notably urban environment and cityscape, museums, historic monuments and other attractions, accessibility, and things to see and do in the immediate vicinity. Yet like any "best of", the classification is by nature subjective, an opinion of the reviewers. Every traveler will have his or her own best places in France, depending on what they have actually seen, and what they are interested in.
