The one place you absolutely have to see in each department of France; Oliver Gee; The Local


France – Pont du Gard (Roman Aqueduct)
Chateaux, national parks, museums, beaches, and historical sites (plus much more). These are the must-see places in each of France’s 96 mainland departments. How many can you tick off?
01. Ain, eastern France
The historical village of Pérouges, which has ranked among the most beautiful in France, is even the setting for a handful of French period films.
02. Aisne, northern France
You simply cannot go past the Laon cathedral, from the 12th century, which ranks up with Notre Dame in terms of France’s top examples of Gothic architecture.
03. Allier, central France
Head to the Maison Mantin, a museum in the town of Moulins, that was once a mansion in the late 19th century before being closed off for a century. It was opened to the public in 2010 and offers a really eclectic collection of art.
04. Alpes-de-Hautes-Provence, southern France
