If the Côte d’Azur is now a top tourist destination, it is largely due to its mild climate and its 75 mile-long beaches that come to life as early as March.
Of course, the 12 million visitors annually appreciate its 300 days of sunshine a year, as well as the large number of tourist sites on offer in the Côte d’Azur's major towns. From the border with Italy, Menton, Monaco, Nice, Antibes, Cannes and Grasse compete for attention.
The towns that are relatively less popular are also full of entertainments; such as Èze, Villefranche-sur-Mer, Vence, Saint Paul de Vence, Mougins and Saint Tropez. The hilltop villages of the French Riviera offer exceptional opportunities for their visitors to appreciate its gorgeous nature as well as the richness of their terroir.
