West of Nice Côte d’Azur

Antibes Juan-Les-Pins, Mougins, Saint Paul de Vence, Biot, Grasse Visit their picturesque streets and marvel at the picture-perfect scenery.

Then continue your journey towards Saint-Tropez, “the place to be” for celebrities. On the way, make a stopover in the Estérel. Its imposing red rock massif offers a sublime setting for hikes or bike rides.

East of Nice Côte d’Azur

On the other side of the territory, east of Nice Côte d’Azur, include in your program the Principality of Monaco, Menton, and the Italian Riviera. Perched on the most famous of rocks, Monaco invites you to experience luxury, from high-end boutiques to casinos and starred restaurants. If you prefer to do some sightseeing, make sure you plan ahead and don’t forget to watch the Changing of the Guard. See it every morning at 11.55 am in the square of the Palace of the Princely Family.

A stone’s throw away is Menton, famous for its citrus fruits and the traditional Lemon Festival.

A little tip: don’t forget to visit the old town and its pretty facades in the warm colors of the south. Finally, don’t forget that Nice is 30km from Italy. Extend your journey to the Italian Riviera and explore its authentic towns and villages. Stroll through the markets of Ventimiglia, then wander through the narrow streets of Bordighera, and don’t miss a shopping session in the boutiques of San Remo. You’ll love it! Create unforgettable memories that will complement your stay in Nice Côte d’Azur.
