A European tourist should reach at least once on the French Riviera, known as the Côte d'Azur, if only for the celebrity of this place, one of the few exotic destinations in Continental Europe. The entire coast of the Riviera has formed 120 km, enough to accommodate almost any form of entertainment, all types of hotels, motels and campgrounds, including 40 km of beach covered with stones, but with enough sand.
There are no fewer than 150 private beaches, which belong to hotels, tour companies, but private and exclusive destination. Dozens of cities, including Nice, Cannes, Monte Carlo and Saint Tropez, were primarily developed around the Alpine meeting bays created by the Tyrrhenian Sea, part of the Mediterranean, most resorts and tourist villages offering unique images, with steep slopes on one side, the ribs which locals and villas were built, and stretches of water on the other side, the waves which meet yachts, fishermen boats and cruise ships. Shining star on the French Riviera - Cannes - an eclectic destination, an exciting cocktail of drama to dance, from circus to opera, from music to humor. Cannes and this year celebrates 60 years of cinema.
An excellent place is Saint Paul Vence, with a magnificent architecture, towers, chapels, bell towers, narrow streets and, above all, a breathtaking view.
