France
- info - Cote D'Azur -
Known predominately as the French Riviera, the Cote D'Azur stretches from St. Tropez to Monte-Carlo/ Monaco, including Cannes, Nice, Grasse and Villefranche.

Nice is the largest of the cities on the Cote D'Azur. It has excellent museums, good beaches, wide promenades along the waterfront, and daily flower and vegetable markets, which are some of the numerous highlights to see.

Monte-Carlo/ Monaco, with its fashionable shops and casino is still ruled by one of the world's oldest monarchies and is home to the Monaco Grand Prix in May and the Monte-Carlo Rally in January.

Cannes is famous for it being a top Mediterranean resort and for its festivals, the most famous being the Cannes Film Festival in May.

Grasse is inland, nestled between two hills looking out over the sea in the distance. Surrounded by fields of flowers, Grasse has been the center of the worlds perfume industry since the 16th century. Perfume housees founded in the 18th and 19th centuries are still in business today.

Worth a trip to see is the Gorges du Verdon which was deeply cut by the river Verdon. The gorge is over 700 m (2,297 ft) deep in spots and offers many stopping places for spectacular views of the surrounding region.
