The Riviera stretches along the northern coast of the Mediterranean Sea from the Italian city of La Spezia to France – Marseille. That part of the Riviera, which is located on the territory of France, is commonly called the “Cote d’Azur” of France all over the world. This is more than three hundred kilometers, of which more than forty are occupied by magnificent beaches, on which the bright sun shines for almost three hundred days a year.
That is why the Cote d’Azur welcomes guests from all over the world all year round with its unique landscapes, bright colors, superbly developed recreation and entertainment infrastructure. For most visitors to the French Riviera, this place appears as a single, huge festive city that stretches along the coast.
In summer, you can not only relax on gorgeous beaches, but also travel by yacht or car, attend concerts and festivals in Nice or Cannes, and visit Monaco. Throughout the season, the most interesting events enliven the area, such as the Cannes Film Festival, the carnivals in Menton and Nice, the sailing regattas in St. Tropez, the circus festival and Formula 1 motor racing.
Monte Carlo and Nice are hosting tours of the world’s most famous theaters, with unique performances and productions. A huge variety of museums, castles, galleries, ranging from an exotic museum of butterflies or cars, and ending with classic art and archaeological expositions.
In terms of the number of museums, only Paris surpasses the Cote d’Azur. For children, an analogue of Disneyland is open on the Cote d’Azur, only with a sea bias and many water attractions – Maryland. Even winter here, on the Cote d’Azur, seems special, because the ambient temperature rarely drops below +10 degrees even in Epiphany frosts.
Colorful fairs, seasonal sales, many shops and boutiques of the world’s most famous brands will delight fashion lovers, and the wonderful atmosphere of an eternal holiday will not allow anyone to remain indifferent and get bored on the beautiful coast of the French Riviera – Cote d’Azur.
