Trip Summary

  • Menton

    Last stop on the Côte d’Azur on the Italian border, the seaside town of Menton offers a glimpse of what the high life on the Riviera must have been like before the developers moved in. With its sunny climate, shady streets, lovely old port and pastel mansions, it`s one of the most attractive towns on the entire coast. Menton`s old town is a cascade of pastel-colored buildings. Add a fantastic museum dedicated to the great artist and film director Jean Cocteau, as well as several excellent restaurants, and Menton really is a must.br /> Visit Musée Jean Cocteau, Old Town, Old Chateau Cemetery, Basilica St. Michel, Salle des Mariages, Bastion Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Eglise Russe de Menton, and so much more!

  • French Riviera - Hill Towns

    The Hilltop Villages perched high above the sea are probably some of the greatest assets the French Riviera has to offer. These villages boast elegant medieval architecture and should not be missed. As you stroll down the heart of these pedestrian-hilltop towns you will be transported back in time to a different era. Most of the original architecture and cobble stone streets remain. Our advice while visiting is to explore the back alleys, get away from the main streets and lose yourself in the myriad of twisting dark lanes and breath in the smells of the flowers in bloom. You will be stunned at the spectacular views of the coast and unspoiled beauty of the backcountry, parks and rich Mediterranean gardens, and an exceptional series of museums in a region that has always loved painters. Visit St Paul de Vence, Grasse, Vence, La Colle-sur-Loup, Mougins, Le Cannet, La Gaude, Opio, Beausoleil, Eze, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, and so much more!

  • Nice (French Riviera)

    Nice is the capital of the Riviera, yet far less glamorous and expensive than Cannes. It's also one of the most ancient, having been founded by the Greeks, who called it 'Nike' or Victory. Because of its brilliant sunshine and relaxed living, it has attracted famous artists and writers in the past. Being the best trip base on the Riviera, you can choose to explore the region or lounge in its famous cafes. But the most obvious hangout spot here is the beach. The beach in Nice consists of rocks so wear a pair of good sandals.

    Explore the Promenade des Anglais, Musee Matisse, Russian Orthodox Cathedral, Cours Saleya, Castle Hill, Old Town, Place Massena and so much more!
