famous landmark of the city. Workers used more than 18,000 iron pieces to construct the Eiffel Tower. At its completion, it was twice the height of any other man made structure in the world. After French automobile company Citroën attached letters to the tower's sides in 1925 to advertise their company, Charles Lindbergh used it as a beacon during the first solo transatlantic flight. A chic picnic at restaurant 58 Eiffel Tower on the first floor of the tower allows you to make the most of your visit.

Mont St Michel is in a shallow bay, making it the ideal location for monks who were seeking solitude, and today has a monastic community. Visitors to the island are rewarded with panoramic views of the abbey and bay by climbing to the ramparts. The view from the ramparts is spectacular and the architecture dating back to the 11th-century and Gothic buildings make Mont St Michel one of Normandy's most beautiful attractions.

The dining room and kitchen have been restored to look as they did when Monet was alive, and the crockery that he ordered for special occasions still sits in the glass cabinets.

elegant sails boat anchored in the harbor, cobbled streets, slate-grey facades, and dozens of restaurants with outdoor terraces; perfect for people watching. For decades artists such as Monet, Courbet, Cals, Boudin, Bazille, Sisley and Jongkind have flocked to the region, which is evident in the many galleries of Honfleur. St. Catherine Church is one of the most stunning churches in France; was constructed by shipwrights entirely of timber. The church is the oldest surviving chapel in France built from wood. With identical naves, the unique ceiling of the chapel looks like overturned boats. The chapel with a classical organ is magnificent when sunlight beams through the 19th-century stained glass.

in the market square on May 30, 1431. The exact location of her pyre is marked by a concrete-and-metal cross in front of the modern Église Jeanne-d'Arc—and that eye-catching, flame-evoking church is just one of the many landmarks that make this sizable port city so fascinating. Once the capital of the duchy of Normandy, it was hit hard during World War II, but a wealth of medieval half-timber houses still line the tiny cobblestone streets of Vieux Rouen. The most famous of those streets—Rue du Gros-Horloge, between Place du Vieux-Marché (where Joan burned) and Cathédrale Notre-Dame—is suitably embellished halfway along with a massive and much photographed 14th-century horloge (clock). Of course, the glorious cathedral itself is nothing to scoff at: Claude Monet immortalized it in a memorable series of paintings.
