the Côte d'Azur
This azure coastline
of the Mediterranean delivers everything it promises. Whether you go
east or west from Nice there are stunningly beautiful places to
visit, all within half an hours journey time by car, train or coach.
To the East firstly
you encounter Villefranche, the exclusive peninsula of Cap Ferrat
and Beaulieu before reaching Monte Carlo in the principality of
Monaco. Beyond this you discover the beautiful Italianate resort of
Menton before crossing the Italian border at Ventemiglia.
the West of Nice you discover the peninsula of the Cap d'Antibes
with the lively town of Antibes on one side and the resort of
Juan-Les-Pins on the other. Almost immediately after this you come
upon Cannes, famous for its many festivals.
