Well-known for the beautiful views of its famous Promenade des Anglais waterfront, Nice is an ethnically-diverse coastal port city on the French Riviera and the fifth most populated city in France.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Vieille Ville and Colline du Chateau overlook. Get out of town with these interesting Nice side-trips: Antibes (Musee Picasso, Le Nomade, &more), Cannes (La Croisette, Les Murs Peints, &more) and Easy Dive (in Juan-les-Pins). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Promenade des Anglais, admire the masterpieces at Musee d'Art Moderne Et d'Art Contemporain, pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedrale Saint-Nicolas a Nice, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedrale Sainte-Reparate.

You can plan Nice trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Medieval Heart of France

Best known as a fortified town, Carcassonne is a walled city that provided the inspiration for the castle in Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" and the location for many scenes in Kevin Costner's movie "Robin Hood." For a daily dose of excitement, medieval jousting tournaments are held twice per day between the two walls--while this may sound like a typical touristy show, it's actually an entertaining display of combative competition and horsemanship.
