The Côte d'Azur, the French Riviera, is a glamorous section of the #Mediterranean coast, named after its deep azure waters, and the place to go for the good life, #sea, #yachts and #luxury. Thanks to the sunny weather that prevails most of the year in this region of southern France, the sky often has a fascinating azure blue hue. 

The Côte d'Azur begins in Saint-Tropez (some people also say in Cassis, a small city east of Marseille) and extends to #Menton, less than 30 kilometres from the border with Italy. Already in the 1820s, the Côte d'Azur was popular as a winter sports resort with the British. Today it is a busy (and unfortunately often crowded) summer holiday destination. Spring and autumn bring milder weather and a quieter, more relaxed atmosphere. 

Especially such dazzling places as #Cannes (famous for its film festival) and #Monaco, with their wealth, attract many travellers. Along the azure-blue coast, one glamorous place follows the next one, beautiful boardwalks and shopping miles invite to have a stroll and here and there, one sometimes sees a huge beach villa. 

But the Côte d'Azur has something to offer for everybody. #Nizza is for example the place where you can enjoy the good life, visit art museums and stroll through cobblestone streets and palm fringed boulevards. From here you can take many day trips that offer beauty and cultural attractions by the sea. 

#SaintTropez (once just a typical Provençal fishing village, which now bears the secondary name "the pearl of the Côte d'Azur") impresses with fast sports cars, million-dollar yachts in its Old Port and exclusive private beaches. But also its public beaches are attractive for tourists. 

In #Antibes, nature lovers and sun worshippers bask in the sun on extensive sandy beaches.

If you don't want to miss any of the highlights of a holiday along the Côte d'Azur, it is best to grab a rental car and start a small road trip through southern Provence. With a few small stopovers, you can explore this approximately 150 kilometres long stretch excellently with a car. 

One thing is certain: The breathtaking views will leave you speechless. You can experience more than an unforgettable #sunset here. Hidden bays invite you to stay and the mountainous hinterland is a paradise for the #hikingenthusiasts among you. The latter has already inspired famous artists like Renoir and Picasso.
