THE COAST (Basse Corniche)


The weaving streets and giant yacht-studded bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer make a welcome relief after busy Nice. Plus, Villefranche is graced with one of the few sandy beaches in the region. It's narrow but runs for several kilometres along the bay. More.

St-Jean Cap Ferrat

This lush, pine-shaded little peninsula is dotted with luxurious villas cloistered behind walls of foliage. More.

Beaulieu-sur Mer

Winter and summer, Beaulieu-sur-Mer has one of the more dependably mild climates in France. Protected by mountains and bordering the sea, Beaulieu has long attracted the wealthy and the idle. More.

Cap d'Ail

With a fantastic nearly hidden beach, a relaxing coastal walk and lush vegetation, Cap d'Ail is a wonderful place to spend the day. Read more.

INLAND (Moyenne Corniche)


Eze has a small outlet to the sea but the main village is at 427m above sea level, making it France's highest seaside village. Naturally, the views are splendid but it's also delightful to wander the medieval streets of the village centre. More.

SCENIC ROUTE (Grande Corniche)

La Turbie

Known for its impressive Roman monument, the Trophee des Alpes, La Turbie affords the best views on the Riviera--if it's not cloudy. More.
