It’s hard to picture a more romantic destination than the French Riviera. Despite its reputation as a glamorous place with a dazzling nightlife, Côte d’Azur is home to winding hilltop roads, turquoise waters, beautiful beaches, magical landscapes and stunning ancient architectures. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into an impressionist painting the second you land! Côte d’Azur is for the art lovers and hopeless romantics. If you’re planning a trip to the French Riviera, check out these 7 places to visit in Côte d’Azur for a fairy-tale getaway:
The city of Nice is a fuse of both old and new architectural styles ranging from different periods, with both French and Italian influences. Nice’s key attraction is Old Town Nice or Vieux Nice, a charming area filled with cobblestone streets, pastel-hued buildings, and authentic local shops selling soaps, handicrafts and baked goods.
Cannes is home to the famous film festival in May – but you still get to witness its glitz and glam all year around! With designer bars, couture shopping malls, and swanky hotels on the Croisette, it’s no short of celebrity sightings, Ferraris, and all things luxury. Make sure you check out Le Suquet while you’re there. This stunning medieval district of Cannes is packed with fascinating history, vibrant culture and panoramic views of the city.
You may agree that Villefranche-sur-Mer is the most charming place in Côte d’Azur. This quaint and authentic fishing town is filled with heartwarming locals, with an International scene that attracts a cosmopolitan crowd. Here you can relax on the beach, unwind with a cuppa in an artsy cafe, people watch, enjoy lovely selections of fresh produce, sip on a glass of wine and shop at local markets! It’s the perfect place to enjoy the laid-back French lifestyle.
Eze is a charming hilltop town in Côte d’Azur with jaw-dropping views. Its cobblestoned streets and bright pink bougainvillaeas are guaranteed to take you back to the medieval times. Here you’ll find plenty of posh art galleries, gift shops and cafes. Hotel Cap Estel in Eze Village is fantastic if you’re looking for a quiet hideout.
