This corner of France has been a playground of countryside and coastline since the Roman times. Before you reach the Cote d’Azur, there is plenty of inland action – climbing, canoeing in the Verdon Gorge or relax watching local men play petanque with a cup of coffee in town
squares. On reaching the Provincial coastline, you will notice the crowds swell in your choice
of pretty seaside towns – Cannes, Antibes and Nice to name a few. Understated Nice is
a lavender-shuttered Italianate old town and boasts the country’s greatest concentration of museums outside Paris. The city is also blessed with a wide esplanade running along a buzzing public beach. No visit to the region is complete without a visit to a Provencal market, full of colours, fabrics, flavours and foods all sourced and produced locally.
