Tips / Destination

If you are on a tour of the south of France, try to visit some of these amazing restaurants along the way.

Restaurant Chez Michel in Marseille is an old favorite with locals and for good reason. It’s a foodie institution and the local dishes, such as seafood bourride, are some of the best you can get in town.

In Nice, try Chez Palmyre for a traditional brasserie experience. It has been open since 1926, but changed hands around a decade ago when the mother and daughter team handed it over to current owner Philippe. You can get a three-course lunch or dinner menu for just €18, an incredible value in a city as expensive as Nice.

Cannes is another expensive destination, but you can get a decent feed for less than $10 at Bar du Marin. It’s near the center of town, too, so you won’t have to travel far to get a well-cooked family meal of omelette, lasagna or special dishes like veal liver.

Saveurs et Sense is a lovely spot in Montpellier that uses fresh local ingredients to great effect. Book ahead if you want to get a table at peak times because there aren’t many seats to go around.

Under $100: El Poble-Sec, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s insane popularity and large influx of visitors as of late may have some travelers steering away from the Mediterranean coastal city, but just outside the overpopulated center of the city, known as Ciutat Vella, are quieter neighborhoods that offer more of a local feel and don’t come with exorbitant tourist prices. El Poble-Sec is one such area that rests between the towering Montjuic park and the Old Town, making it a nice escape but still close enough to access the sights.

Try Regional Chinese in the East Village

In food capitals like New York City, foodie crazes seem to rise and set as quickly as the sun, but one trend that has endured for awhile now is the city’s penchant for regional Chinese cuisine, and the East Village is home to some of the city’s top spots for sampling your way through several of these regions.

Take Me to Tahiti

Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.

Visiting Winter Destinations in the Summer

Some places appear better to visit in the winter. For example, anywhere known for winter sports, such as skiing and snowboarding, will be less visited in the summer because those same people are going to spend their time at the beach or another destination. However, visiting these destinations during the off-seasons can show a side of the city or town that can’t be seen under piles of snow. It’s worth checking out a couple of these favorite winter destinations.
