French Riviera

Many people have the idea that the French Riviera is just for movie stars and millionaires but that's not the case. In fact, this beautiful region can be a great travel bargain.

The French Riviera stretches about 120 miles westward from the Italian border, along France's Mediterranean shore. Its best-known resorts are Nice, Cannes, Saint-Tropez & Monaco.

This is a spectacular area and people are drawn to it because of the sun-drenched beaches, and of course, the lavish places like Monaco and Cannes. You can also find quaint hill-top villages and Provencal markets.

Its mild climate year-round and its exceptional natural beauty have made its reputation as a paradise on earth - with over 300 days of sunshine a year!
