The French Riviera is a smorgasbord of delights. What to see?
Here are sights you just can't miss.
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.
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.
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.
A small-town in Provence that has become an obligatory photo op for every starlet on the make. Sandy Pampelonne beach is paparazzi heaven, closely followed by the former fishing village's sizzling nightlife.
Don't miss the Old Port.
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.
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
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.
