If rivers were Hollywood Stars, the Thames would top the A-Lists. It has seen kings and queens come and go, it has witnessed both plagues and prosperity, and above all it has shaped the shoulders on which England stands. Featured in such films as Harry Potter, James Bond, Fantastic Four and Indiana Jones, it has also had its fair share on the silver screen. In light of its celebrity it’s little wonder that everyone in London wants in on the view! Fortunately, we’ve been able to put together this list of modern rental apartments in London with a great view of the Thames River.

Looking from all angles, this bridge is a beautiful sight in the London city.
One of the best spots in the Southern French Alps in the summer is probably the Verdon Canyon.

Find your way by following the link to our article, with the 5 best things to do in Paris on your first time.

Fontaine de Vaucluse - Southern French Alps on Flickr.
This hidden gem can be found in the Provence region in the South of France, built on a mountain source at the foot of the Vaucluse mountains and a 785ft cliff. Historically, it was only called “Vaucluse” (closed valley in Latin), which gave the area its name, and still is the biggest river source in France.
