City View, Bordeaux

France's insider take:

For a great overview, climb the 229 dizzying, twisting steps of the Tour Pey-Berland by the cathedral. You'll survey the entire city, including the extraordinary law courts, designed by Richard Rogers in 1998. The series of seven irregular podlike structures (reminiscent of a row of wine bottles or vats) is surrounded by glass walls and topped by an undulating copper roof.
