French Riviera

Witness gorgeous sunsets that set the sky ablaze, lounge in glitzy resorts and discover historic medieval ruins in this glamorous stretch of coastline.

With its sparkling waters, picturesque beaches and consistent warm temperatures, the French Riviera is a dream vacation destination. Bring along your walking shoes and wander through medieval towns, stopping at galleries to admire artworks. Spot celebrities relaxing on the decks of their private yachts and enjoy a sophisticated nightlife scene that lasts until the early hours. 

For an oceanfront city break, head for Nice, which offers lots of accommodations as well as year-round activities. Climb up to the elevated Parc du Château to spot castle ruins and take in beautiful views over Nice’s rust-colored rooftops. Take a Segway tour of the Promenade des Anglais, a stunning waterfront walkway just steps from the sand.

The hills overlooking Nice are dotted with attractive medieval towns such as St. Paul and Vence. In the past, many artists flocked to these towns seeking peace and creative inspiration. Step inside the Chapelle du Rosaire de Vence, which was designed by the iconic French artist, Henri Matisse. Sketch sculptures at the Fondation Maeght, a gallery with a large collection of 20th-century art and sculpture.

Seaside towns can be found strewn along the sun-soaked coast south of Nice. Ride an electric tour boat through the canals of Port-Grimaud, admiring the pastel-colored houses and marvel at the million-dollar yachts moored in Port Vauban. Even further south sits the beach and spa town of Juan-les-Pins, famous as the one-time home of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. For more glitz, head to the glamorous resorts of Beaulieu-sur-Mer and Villefranche-sur-Mer, just north of Nice.

July and August draw the largest crowds to the French Riviera, so go in April, June, September or October for a quieter experience. For the chance to spot film stars, plan your trip for May when the Cannes Film Festival is on. 

To explore a good cross-section of the region, rent a car. Zip along coastal roads and stop at small Mediterranean towns along the scenic RN 98 to admire the natural beauty of the French Riviera.
