Beyond Paris: 7 Must-See Cities in France

Beyond Paris: 7 Must-See Cities in France

Paris gets all the attention. And don’t get us wrong, it is an amazing city filled with famous landmarks and stunning museums. But there are so many other magnificent destinations in France worthy of your honeymoon travel.  Here are 7 places to visit in France that we think you will love!

view of Nice coastline

Nice

Right on the Mediterranean coastline, Nice is one of the jewels of the French Riviera.  And it’s just as pretty as you think it is.  Take a stroll on the Promenade de Anglais. Throughout the year, plenty of special events are held here, but even on an average day the view can’t be beat!  You’ll recognize this city’s Vielle Ville (Old Town) from Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief as you walk along the narrow streets and admire all of booths full of flowers and treats.

vineyard near Bordeaux, France

Bordeaux

Wine lovers rejoice!  Bordeaux is the perfect honeymoon destination for you.  Full of lush vineyards, Bordeaux is a city in southwestern France located right on the Garonne River.  The riverfront is teeming with beautiful views, interesting shops, and plenty of places to get lost for the day.  While there, make sure to see the Place de la Bourse, built under King Louis XV.  Stay past sunset so that you can see the buildings lit up at night for an especially memorable sight!

Christmas market in Strasbourg, France

Strasbourg

Close to the German border, Strasbourg is a veritable French-German fusion of food, culture, and architecture.  The one non negotiable here is a river tour. It’s the best way to see the city and all of its charms.  If you are considering taking your honeymoon in the winter, think about going during the Christmas season. Strasbourg is host to a lovely Christmas market each year.  The Strasbourg Cathedral remains as the 6th tallest church in the world, and features many impressive details, including its world-famous clock.

view of cathedral in Marseille

Marseille

The second-largest city in France is chock-full of things to see and do.  Make sure to take time to visit its most notable cathedral, the Notre Dame de la Garde.  Need to cool off on a warm summer day?  Go cliff diving at Calanques National Park. With sparkling blue waters and a dramatic rocky coast, you’ll feel as if you are living in a postcard.  Literature buffs won’t want to miss a boat ride to Chateau d’If, a former prison that served as one of the settings in The Count of Monte Cristo.

medieval walls in Avignon, France

Avignon

A little known fact is that Avignon was once home to the Catholic papacy.  Visit the Pope’s Palace to learn all about this unique history.  If you favor art over religious history, take a day trip to nearby Arles to peek into the site of Van Gogh’s influences with an amazing walk through the gardens he painted.  And it wouldn’t be a real trip to Avignon without a food tour throughout Provence.  A market called the Avignon les Halles is one of the largest in the region.

water mill in Bayeux, France

Bayeux

The main reason to visit Bayeux is its proximity to the Normandy beaches. From memorials to the actual site of the famous WWII invasion by Allied troops, this area is rich with history.  After you complete your pilgrimage, spend an extra day in the town of Bayeux.  The Saturday morning market will tempt you, and their Old Town will enthrall you with picturesque cottages and water mills.

Alps range by Chamonix, France

Chamonix

Its claim to fame being the first host of the Winter Olympics, Chamonix is located in the shadow of Mont Blanc’s summit.  Although there are plenty of things to keep you occupied during the summer, this is definitely a French destination made for a winter honeymoon!  Take a cable car into the Alps and over a glacier for an unforgettable ride.  You can also journey into Mer de Glace, France’s largest glacier, via ice caves.
