Guide to the cities, attractions and area information
The French Riviera or Côte d'Azur is France’s most popular fun-in-the-sun destination. From famous vineyards of Bandol to city of Menton, known as the lemon capital of the Riviera, this glittering stretch of Mediterranean coastline is traversed by three cliff routes — the Low Corniche that frames beaches and coastal villages in 33 km, Middle Corniche with exceptionally pretty sea views reaching Cap Ferrat and impressive villas of Cap d'Antibes, and High Corniches (constructed by Napoléon 1er) set between the cliffs rising up to 450 metres above the Principality of Monaco.
Riviera’s history: in the footsteps of celebrities
Much loved for its mild weather, azure sea and blue sky with 300 days of sunshine per year, the French Riviera offers much more than just a first class beach resort. In the 19th century, the south coast of France became a favourite spot for aristocrats from London to Moscow who flocked to the Riviera to socialize, soak up the sun and gamble. Even royals such as Napoleon III and Queen Victoria were captivated by the splendid scenery with magnificent views over the Mediterranean coast.
With the creation of Cannes Film Festival in 1946, the Riviera gained its international reputation as a city of the rich and famous. Appearance of movie stars such as Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren and Grace Kelly, walking on the Festival’s red carpet, attracted media coverage from all around the world!
