Boarding the Mediterranean, combining luxury, beauty and stunning shades of blue is the fabulous French Riviera. Known worldwide as the coastal retreat of the rich and famous, the French Riviera offers a multitude of wonders ranging from mountain-top villages to golden beaches. Marseille delights visitors with its swanky museums and yachtfilled docks, St. Tropez with its sandy beaches and hot night life, and of course Cannes with its elegant architecture and vibrant party scene. The charm of the French Riviera doesn’t stop there though. Beyond the glitz and glam, historical and cultural treasures await curious travellers, including Nice’s Vielle Ville (Old Town) and Le Negresco with its collection of over 6,000 artefacts.
From breathtaking countryside to vibrant, bustling cities, the Rhone Valley offers a wide array of exciting experiences sure to delight travellers looking to immerse in France’s wine industry, rich culture and proud history. The region stretches from the grand city of Lyon, France’s third largest city, to the north of the town of Orange in Provence, the very same span of land where armies during Charlemagne’s time traversed France from north to south and vice versa.
