The Côte d'Azur, often known in English as the French Riviera, is the Mediterranean coastline of the southeast corner of France, also including the sovereign state of Monaco.The French Riviera is a premier resort destination for good reason: It has clear water bordered by stretches of white-sand beaches, rocky cliffs, and hidden coves—and it’s only a 90-minute flight from Paris.The bustling city of Nice, the legendary waterfront town of Cannes, and the once-sleepy village of St. Tropez are the main attractions. Many others such as Ezes, Grace, St Paul de Vence, Cap ferrat, Antibes must be visited.
