Top Ten Things to Do on the French Riviera
The French Riviera on the Mediterranean Cote d'Azur coast is one of the most popular visitor destinations in France. It's easy to see why.
Be a star in Saint Tropez
Saint Tropez has legendary status among the glitzy and glamorous watering holes of the French Riviera. It's very busy in the summer but you can get away from it all on the walk around the headland. Otherwise head for the center, sit in a pavement cafe and watch the world go by.
Marvel at the Chapelle St-Pierre of Jean Cocteau
Villefrance-sur-Mer is a pretty, unspoilt former fishing village. It's known for the decorations and stained glass of its little Chapelle St-Pierre decorated by Jean Cocteau in 1957.
Contrast old and new at Roquebrune-Cap-Martin
Roquebrune-Cap-Martin located between Menton and Monaco on the French Riviera is a delightful contrast. The hilltop village is full of cobbled streets sheltering around the ancient ruined castle. Down below yachts bob in the harbor and villas built by the rich and famous cling to the shoreline. Take your pick of old and new.
Gamble at the Casino at Monte-Carlo
If you want to join the Man who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo or just soak up the atmosphere of this world famous place, visit the fabulous Belle Epoque Casino at Monte Carlo. You don't have to gamble, you can just walk through the building, but if you do, it's for both high rollers and those after a flutter in Monaco's capital, one of the most glamorous addresses in the world.
Take in the Flavors and Scents of the Cours Saleya market in Nice
Visitors to Nice make their first stop the Cours Saleya market in Nice. This huge market of tempting, wonderfully fresh fruit and vegetables is a feast for the eye and the taste buds. Stalls sell everything from olives to ripe peaches in the center of the square in the old town while cafes and restaurants with terraces spilling out onto the pavements do brisk business all day.
Stroll through the Old Town and Port of Antibes
Antibes is a wonderful town to visit. It has a harbor which houses some of the most expensive yachts in the Mediterranean as well as a delightful old town which you can stroll around. Take in the covered market, the little streets and squares full of bistros and cafes, the Picasso Museum and the ramparts.
Marvel at the Art in the Fondation Maeght in St-Paul-de-Vence
A short walk from the pretty hilltop village of St Paul de Vence, the Fondation Maeght has been a major attraction in this part of the south of France since it was built in 1964. Sheltered by umbrella pines, the work of major 20th century artists from Matisse to Picasso is displayed in light airy galleries, beside pools and in the gardens.
Go Back to Nature on the Iles d’Hyeres
The Iles d'Hyeres just off the coast between St Tropez and Toulon are made up of three islands with very different characters from car-free Porquerelles to the nudist beaches on the Ile de Levant.
Drive along the Corniche de l’Esterel
There are many lovely drives along the coastline, but the drive along the Corniche de l'Esterel is one of the best and if you don't have much time, it is very short. On one side you get the Esterel rocks rising above you; on the other you see the little inlets and coves of the Mediterranean.
