Côte D'Azur France

Côte D'Azur France

CÔTE D`AZUR Our romantic journey begins in the city of Cannes in the south of France, along the ‘Blue Coast', the Côte D`Azur. For most of the time, this impressive section of the Mediterranean coast enjoys a mild climate and is synonymous with a luxurious lifestyle beneath the southern sun. Le Suquet, the old town that is located above the old port has, in spite of tourism, managed to retain its air of calm sophistication. The markets in the old town offer an abundance of eye-catching vegetables, fruit and fresh fish. Narrow and picturesque alleys lead up to the tiny mountain of Mont Chevalier on which the historical area of the city is situated. Close by is the Cap D`Antibes with its mighty castle that from 1386 was owned by the Grimaldis and in the 16th century became a French possession. A huge defensive wall built by the Sun King‘s master fortress builder surrounds the old town and protects its seaward side. Nice is the ‘dream coast's' fascinating and colourful city located on the curve of Angel Bay, a metropolis that has lost little of its turn of the century charm. The magnificent Promenade Des Anglais, named after the resort's former large contingent of English visitors, was built during the19th century. The historical centre of the city, Vielle Ville, has become the home of Arabian immigrants, thus couscous features prominently on the menu. The old fish market is the most beautiful on the entire Côte D`Azur and its traditional displays of seafood are a feast to the eye. In the centre of the Côte D`Azur's enchanting landscape is the picturesque medieval village of Eze. Most of the village that can be seen today had its origins in the 10th century and its fine old buildings, charming back streets and archways are real architectural gems. Only a little further along the coast is the Principality of Monaco which, after the Vatican, is the smallest yet most unique sovereign state in the world. Luxury yachts anchor in the harbour throughout the year and travel from all over the globe to visit this much sought after tax haven and exclusive casino paradise. Romance, history, luxury, glamour, prosperity and sunshine: the Côte D`Azur!
