Bordeaux

The beauty of taking your mom on a Mother's Day trip to various French cities—or to anywhere else, for that matter—is that you're also old enough to enjoy mature things together. Take drinking wine, for example. Naturally, she won't allow you even a drop when you were younger, but now that you're older, you can go on wine samplings together. And among the many French cities out there, Bordeaux is the best place to do just that. Located by the Garonne River, the city is widely regarded as the wine capital of the world. It's here where you'll find the finest wineries in France, which produce bottles of champagne, rosé, and sparkling wine.

Nice

If your mom hasn't had enough of the paradisiacal southern France yet, you can always take her to Nice next. Though it's one of the more underrated towns on the French Riviera, it's just as dreamy as Cannes and Marseilles. It's easy to think that it's another typical seaside town with sunny beaches and cobbled streets but Nice has a unique magic to it that's all its own. For one thing, the city's art scene is something else! Musée Matisse and Musée Marc Chagall show some of the very best works of their namesake artists.
