Nimes / Avignon
We went through the south of france and our favourites places were Nimes and Avignon. Nimes is definitely worth a visit with its beautiful statued garden (complete with roman ruins) leading up through winding paths to a tower where the whole area can be viewed for next to nothing as well as a lovely old arena similar to the one in verona. Beautiful place to even just get off train and check out for hour or two. Avignon is also lovely and the Palace of the Popes is spectacular (tour is ok b....

France - Paris
Eiffel Tower
Amazing views of Paris from the top level. Anyone begging or trying to sell you anything at the bottom of the tower is probably an illegal immigrant, just be prepared for a little hassling from these people - but they run away when the cops come. Also there is long lines to get up the tower in summer.
