If you want to see France's white collar, contemporary side, Colombes will welcome you with a smile. The commune is a welcome escape from France's more clichéd destinations, especially if you're passionate about art and architecture. The commune makes for an excellent historical tour destination, with sites that were a core part of the French Revolution and World War II. Centuries ago, it was also the home to a druidic cult, which became the namesake of the region. Fetch your Enterprise Rent-A-Car at the Les Quatre Temps shopping mall or off the N12 at Versailles.
