Saint Jean Cap Ferrat
A strong desire to get away from tourists? Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is still preserved from the hordes of summer visitors and offers magnificent panoramas bathed in calm.
In an hour’s walk, you will make a complete tour of the peninsula and discover all the beauty of the coastline shaded by pines and paved with stones. Small coves open intermittently, revealing pebble beaches where the crystal-clear water sparkles in the sun.
Then go up to the Saint-Hospice chapel which dominates the peninsula. His 1,40-meter tall bronze Virgin commands admiration.
Cannes, a destination for jet-setters? Although the city shines once a year for the famous Cannes Film Festival and its parade of movie stars, it has so much more to offer.
The Boulevard de la Croisette, which runs along the seaside, is an essential walk to soak up the Cannes atmosphere. Then go for a walk in the district of Suquet, the oldest district of the city, which includes vestiges dating from the Middle Ages.
Built on a hill to protect itself from pirate attacks, it stretches its winding alleys down to the Old Port below. The Musée de la Castre exhibits a fine collection of antiques and a climb to the top of the Tour Carrée will give you a magnificent view of the coast. Don’t forget to take a trip to the Forville Market, known for the quality of the products and for the energy and good humor of the traders.
Nissa la bella! The largest city on the Côte d´Azur, Nice is often the point of entry for holidaymakers who arrive at its airport (by the way, the most beautiful sight of France when you land).
This superb city has no shortage of attractions to seduce all year round, and not only during the summer season … Boulevard Jean Médecin, the main commercial artery, and Place Masséna constitute the heart of Nice. This is where the famous Nice Carnival passes, whose huge floats make fun of politicians every February.
