Also known as the Riviera, the Cote d’Azur has the rich, the sunbathing and the money. But there is much more……

  • Grasse: perfumeries
  • St. Paul de Vence: cobblestone streets and art
  • Eze: cactus gardens overlooking the Mediterranean
  • Monaco: the yachts and casinos in Monte Carlo
  • Corniche: windy roads high above the Mediterranean

Food: salad nicoise, seafood, ratatouille, tapenade, and ailoi (like garlic mayo)

Wines: rose and Cotes de Provence

Then back in Paris, we shop, and shop, and shop! Great streets to “lecher les vitrines” (window shop):

  • Champs Elysee (Givenchy, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Cartier)
  • Faubourg Saint-Honoré District (Hermes, Lanvin, Lancome)
  • Blvd Haussmann (Galeries Lafayette, Printemps)
  • Avenue de Montaigne (Chanel, Dior, Bulgari, Valentino)
