The stretch of coastline from Menton to Cassis is one of the most famous in Europe. Sun-drenched beaches overlooking a splendid turquoise sea, limpid and crystal-clear, an impervious mountain behind the riviera, where picturesque villages cling to the steep cliffs. All this is accompanied by a lively and fashionable nightlife on the legendary promenades, on which walk the film stars and numerous VIPs that have made this stretch of coastline so famous.
The French Riviera is certainly an ideal destination for those who love the sea, the sun, the beach life and the nightlife of clubs and parties. But it is also a place capable of offering unprecedented itineraries: you can wander among the exceptional art galleries of the great impressionist masters, who found inspiration in the vivid colours of the Provençal nature, characteristic villages full of charm and historical centres that oscillate between the elegance of the luxurious villas of the 1920s and the medieval nuclei, immersed in luxuriant nature.
Summer or winter, you will be enraptured by the beauty of the French Riviera capital. Visiting Nice means strolling along the Promenade des Anglais, admiring its Belle Epoque-style buildings , enjoying an Italian ice cream or admiring the floats of the legendary Nice carnival.
A tour of the picturesque old town is a must, and if you are a fan of painting, then we recommend admiring the beauty of the many museums in Nice, the true art capital of the coast.
