The climat on the French Riviera is really unique, it has more than 300 sunny days per year. That's also one of the reasons why many foreigners stay here during wintertime. The French Riviera has a beautiful landscape with many natural parks, many golf courses, a beautiful dark blue sea, large white sandy beaches and lots of restaurants and famous boulevards. 

 

At one side of the French Riviera (the interior side of the country) you can meet with the beautiful old French architecture in old towns like St Paul de Vence (also called 'town of the artists' because of all the art shops), Mougins or Eze with their narrow roads and old castles. In  this 'interior' part of the country you can also visit towns like Grasse, with it's perfume factory, Gourdon with its perfume source, or Biot with its glasblowing factory. 

On the other side of the French Riviera (the seaside) you can mee with all the well known places like St Tropez with its famous harbour, Cannes with its boulevard 'Croisette' where the filmfestival takes place every year, Antibes with its beautiful old town and harbour, Nice with its long boulevard 'Promenade des Anglais' and its flower market in the old town and of course Monaco with its famous castle, harbour and casinos. 

 

Recommended Trips:

 

Take the kids to Marineland in Antibes where you can look at the biggest dolphin show in Europe. Marineland has many things to offer like the whales show, the tunnel with sharks and the butterfly park.
