Nice Cote d'Azur Airport (NCE)

Set along the Mediterranean on France’s southeastern coast, the French Riviera is a breathtaking playground for celebs, royals and jetsetters. It includes many coastal villages and towns, like the famous beach resort areas of Saint Tropez and Cannes or the independent microstate of Monaco. With the Alps as its backdrop, Monte Carlo is a glittering, tax-free capital and the gambling heartbeat of the French Riviera. Nestled near the Baie des Anges (Bay of Angels), Nice provides the perfect haven for warm sunshine, breathtaking views, impressive cuisine and top-notch shopping.

Ooh-La-La All Over France

Also known as Cote d’Azur, the French Riviera’s stunning cities offer an array of exciting places and activities. One of Europe’s most glamorous resort towns, Saint Tropez, boasts chic cafes, suave restaurants, buzzing clubs and an array of luxury yachts bobbing along the waterfront.

Linked to the world of cinema since 1946, Cannes enjoys an international reputation for its famous film festival held here every May. This Mediterranean town’s obsession with red carpets and evening gowns adds a timeless and picturesque charm. Stroll along Rue Meynadier, and stop to sample local specialties in delicatessens and cheese shops. See more than 300 hand prints of famous film icons along the Allee des Etoiles du Cinema, which is similar to L.A.’s Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard.

From Cannes, take a one-hour train ride to Monaco for a taste of what it’s like being a prince or princess for a day. From mega-yachts and posh mansions to a sparkling harbor and endless sunshine, this Mediterranean city sparkles so brightly the rich and famous are drawn to it from around the world. Take a long look at the over-the-top casinos, or find a chic spot along the waterfront that’s well known for people-watching.

Nice is France’s second most popular destination. The year-round warm weather, Provencal setting, highbrow cuisine and rich, local culture has attracted artists and aristocrats here for decades.
