When we talk about France and its cities, without a doubt the first city that comes to mind is Paris. But France is a country with much more to see than just the capital.
That’s why at BYHOURS we want to recommend you what for us are the best 5 cities in the country to visit and where you can also enjoy a few hours in the best hotels in the town.
Bordeaux is famous for being considered the capital of wine, so if you like wine it is a city you have to visit. We propose you to start with a visit to the Cité du Vin, the biggest international wine museum, a unique cultural space in the world that makes wine known through the world and history.
Then, to complete your visit, you can visit some of the best vineyards in France and enjoy a wine tasting.
As we mentioned before, it is impossible not to think about Paris if you go to France, it is certainly a city to visit. If we have to highlight any place to visit in Paris, it has to be the Eiffel Tower, the most emblematic monument of the city and one of the most visited wonders of the world, for a reason.
But Paris is very big and there is much more to see than the Eiffel Tower, so if you need a break to get your strength back before continuing your visit, you can rest for a few hours in one of our hotels, such as the Hôtel Regence Etoile, located a few minutes from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysées.
When we think of cities in France, Lille probably doesn’t come to mind, but it is a city full of history and corners to discover.
We propose you to stroll around Vieux-Lille, the old town, a spectacular district for its characteristic architecture, with its red brick houses and cobbled streets, where you will also find the best restaurants in the city and charming shops.
Strasbourg is famous for its Christmas market, the largest in France and Europe, but unfortunately it will not be held this year. However, there is more to do in Strasbourg, such as visiting the Petite France, a picturesque neighbourhood with beautiful wooden houses from the 16th and 17th centuries, where you will also find restaurants, shops and green areas. The place is not very big and you can walk or cycle through it, but if you want a different perspective you can also go by boat through the canals.
Located on the Mediterranean coast, it is considered the most important city on the Costa Azul. One of the essential places to see in Nice is the Promenade des Anglais, a 7 km long promenade that you can cycle along while enjoying the view of the sea and its beaches and emblematic and famous hotels such as the Hotel Negresco.
And if after the bike ride you need some time to rest, you can spend a few hours at the Aston La Scala Hotel Nice, a top hotel located only 5 minutes from the beach.
And these would be our recommendations to visit in France, very varied places and each one with its particular charm. And don’t forget that if you need to rest for a few hours, you can do it in any of our hotels.
