French Riviera Roaming
★ From Glamourous Hot Spots To Chilled Out Beaches ★
The French Riviera, the stretch of French coast that hugs the Mediterranean Sea, from the Italian border to St. Tropez, is one of the most storied strips of land in the world. Just say it, "The French Riviera," and images of Hollywood queens, Michelin-stars, and real life royals come to mind, punctuated with images of fast cars, high rollers, and events as legendary as the land itself. No doubt, the Riviera is synonymous with the cream-of-the-crop, but that doesn't mean mere mortals can't partake in these fabled French surrounds.
There are so many things to see and do on The Riviera, and plenty of thick heavy books to guide you, it could take years (and a back ache) to get to them all!
