The Riviera, also known as the Côte d’Azur is certainly the most glamorous region of France. This is where you’ll find legendary towns of St Tropez and Cannes, where each year is held the film festival, the Principality of Monaco and Nice, the gateway to the region.
The Riviera boasts more sunshine than any other region of mainland France, and is usually warm or hot from March to October, so is a popular destination for most of the year and has less of a ‘closed’ season than most parts of France.
The Cote d’Azur (or French Riviera) has long been one of the great attractions for visitors to France, for the sunshine, for its beaches and for its sophistication of resorts. It’s the place to people watch and to be seen.
