Hidden Jems to Visit in the French Riviera

8views

French Riviera visitors often tent to book private tours. Monaco, Nice and Cannes are the obvious choices – but what else is out there for you to discover? 

Eze Village

Èze Village is a picturesque town on the French Riviera. Its beautiful views have made it very popular among tourists. Surrounded by medieval walls, Eze has retained its charm and romance of the typical villages of Southern France. Today, it is one of the most popular cities on the Côte d’Azur. You can come here in order to walk along the streets along which Walt Disney philosopher Nietzsche both walked getting inspired by the beauty fo this place. It is also home to the famous Fragonard Perfume Factory, where you can watch perfumes being made and take their amazing products home.

St Paul de Vence

Saint Paul de Vence is a small picturesque town. It is one of the oldest cities on the Cote d’Azur. In the 20s of the 20th century, Saint Paul de Vence was chosen by artists from Paris, who often visited it to get inspired and work. It was a favorite place of Marc Chagall (he spent the last years of his life here and was buried in Saint Paul de Vence), Paul Signac and Modigliani. As a result, the hotel where the artists stayed – La Colombe d’Or – became the owner of a first-class collection of paintings by the most prominent artists of that time. This town is very popular among tourists, however, it will be more of a disappointment to not see this unique place rather than having to deal with groups of people.

Saint-Raphaël

Saint-Raphaël is a popular seaside resort on the Cote d’Azur of France, situated next to Frejus. The popularity of Saint-Raphael began in the second half of the 19th century, when the town was influenced by the mayor Felix Martin and the famous writer Alphonse Carr. Thanks to their efforts and its mild Mediterranean climate, Saint-Raphael has become a popular seaside resort among artists, athletes and politicians. Attention to the town was drawn in 1799, when Napoleon landed in the small port of Saint-Raphael during his return from Egypt. Since then Saint-Raphaël was famous among visitors and we also recommend discovering this beautiful hidden gem.
