French Riviera

iStock International
The Côte d’Azur – generally cited as the 75 miles of Mediterranean-bordered, French shores that plunge southwest from the Italian border – is dotted with a contrasting, yet cohesive, blend of glamorous coastal resorts and sleepy villages.

French Riviera Cities and Regions

Nice

Elegant, yet affordable, the capital of the region serves as a fantastic base for exploring the Riviera’s many wonders. It’s also an engrossing cultured destination in its own right. See our Nice Travel Guide

Eze

This medieval hamlet of weathered stone buildings and ramparts clings majestically to a cliff 1,400 feet above sea level. Meander the stone pathways and discover exotic gardens, charming restaurants, and artisans’ workshops.

Antibes

In spite of its millionaire residents, Antibes retains the charm and tranquility of a small fishing village. Explore the old port with its 17th-century ramparts and Château Grimaldi – a royal residence-cum-Picasso Museum.

St-Paul-de-Vence

Perched on a rocky hilltop, this artists’ haven features winding cobblestone streets, 16th-century houses, and 400-year-old stone ramparts with panoramas over rolling hills and vineyards.

Cannes

The prestigious Cannes Film Festival draws glitterati to this Riviera resort every May, but visitors can amble the city’s glamorous coastal promenade, La Croisette, year-round, with its glitzy shops, restaurants, and beaches. See our Cannes Travel Guide

Monaco

This independent principality is famed for its royal governance, spotless streets, and tax-haven status. Tour the Prince’s Palace, peruse high-end shops, and visit the Monte Carlo quarter (home to the Monte Carlo Casino). See our Monaco Travel Guide

St. Tropez

The original playground of the rich and famous, this once-sleepy fishing town was immortalized by Brigitte Bardot in the 50s. It’s now a mecca for royalty, celebrities, supermodels and moguls, who come to sunbathe, shop and party in glamorous clubs, restaurants, beaches and yachts.
