Riviera Coast is one of France's most touristic areas and is highly renowned for its idyllic climate, beautiful beaches, and medieval villages. It includes a good part of the Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur (PACA) region as well as the stunning principality of Monaco.
The Bay of Cannes and its Croisette is a must-see on the Riviera Coast. This city is renowned for its famous Cannes Film Festival, bringing together big movie stars yearly, and its luxurious shops. In addition, you will have pleasant moments on its coast and in the city center. Also, please take a tour of its incredible castle. Another place not to be missed on the Riviera Coast is Saint-Tropez: a real gem with a somewhat different vibe depending on the time of year. An ideal way to discover Saint-Tropez is by boat. The port, lined with restaurants and ice cream parlors, the colorful streets, the world-famous church, and the famous Tropezian pie, will transport you to new horizons. By visiting the Riviera Coast, you will come across Monaco, which is of a beauty and mythical richness. Between the luxurious sports cars, the posh shops, and the palace on the rock that dominates the entire bay, your holiday will look like a dream. A little further away is the Eze village, perched on the hills near La Turbie. It dates back to the Middle Ages, and you will undoubtedly be charmed when you pass through the botanical garden or near the picturesque old houses. Nice will welcome you on the Promenade des Anglais and let you be transported by the frenetic atmosphere of its large flower market of Cours Saleya. Of course, other spots such as the castle and the waterfall, Mont Boron, or old Nice will allow you to immerse yourself in an atypical visit to the region. In February, the Nice Carnival is a special event to see. The Lérins Islands: Saint-Honorat and Sainte-Marguerite may be part of your visit. You will be able to escape from its remarkable fauna and flora. Saint-Paul-de-Vence is another village where small restaurants, shops, games of petanque at the café de la place, and art galleries will undoubtedly seduce you. Nature lovers can go to the Estérel in the Var to enjoy activities such as hiking and mountain biking. The Gorges du Verdon will also please you to take walks, hikes, or canoeing.
