The French Riviera is a smorgasbord of delights. What to see? Here are sights you just can't miss.


Blue Parasols on Nice Beach

It snaps, sizzles and pops. Beaches, museums, nightlife, shopping, fine dining; there's no time to be bored no matter when you come. More on the best things to do in Nice.
Don't miss the Promenade des Anglais and the Old Town.

Monte Carlo Casino
No riffraff, only royalty and tennis stars in this magical land where the spirit of Princess Grace still rules. Visit the Prince's Palace, the Exotic Gardens and, by all means sample the unrivaled nightlife.
Don't miss Monte Carlo.

Carlton Hotel, Cannes
Stately but fun, Cannes is more than the famous Film Festival. The air of moneyed elegance is intoxicating; admire the yachts offshore, browse the designer stores and wander up Le Suquet hill for a taste of Old Cannes.
Don't miss La Croisette.

Train de Pignes

Just sit back and enjoy the swirl of Mediterranean scenery as this train chugs through the Var valley. Disembark if you wish to explore medieval villages such as Entrevaux.
Don't miss the steam engine that makes a circuit summer weekends.

Saint Paul de Vence
Yes, it's touristy but there's something magical about this walled city on a hill. Maybe it's the glorious views or maybe it's the classy souvenirs you can pick up
Don't miss the Fondation Maeght, a first-rate museum of contemporary art.

The Moyenne Corniche
Moyenne Corniche

Of the three "corniches", I prefer the middle road which seems to me just the right height to appreciate the sinuous coast.
Don't miss the view of St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

To really appreciate the beauty of the French Riviera coast, why not take a boat trip? Here are the best boat trips on the Riviera.
