The French Riviera also known as Cote D’Azur is one of the most romantic destinations in Europe. It is also one of the richest places in the world. The French Riviera is also known for its royalty, casino, beaches, luxury cars, yacht’s and billionaire’s houses.  The coastal scenery was really awe-inspiring and the blue water was so revitalizing.

If you think that the French Riviera is only for the Rich and Famous, well think again. You can tour the whole of French Riviera on a budget. I and my family hired a tour van which brought us to the five major towns of the French Riviera for only 89 Euros per person. It’s really a good deal since they picked us up in the Airport and toured us for the whole day and brought us back to the hotel.  The good thing about the tour is that it was private and the tour guide was very good at speaking in English. We learned so much about the history of the France.

                My family first went to the town of Cannes, which is famous for International Festival of Cinema. Out of all the towns I went in the French Riviera, Cannes has the best beach. Since its sands is white and there are few rocks and also it is public.  After enjoying our breakfast in Cannes we then went to my favourite town in the South of France, Antibes.  Antibes is my favourite town in the south of France because this is where I experienced being like French since we shopped in an Authentic French Flea Market. I really had fun in seeing different kinds of cheese, crepe stores, cold cuts, meat products, truffles, fruits, vegetables and French macaroons. It was a good learning experience for since I’m the type person who likes to go shopping in Flea Market. I enjoyed it because the stalls had presented it in a good manner. After shopping in the French Flea Market, we then went to the Picasso Museum then walked to Promenade Amiral de Grasse, and then saw the Billionare’s Quay, where you will see so many parked yachts which are owned by famous people. You can also rent these yachts for a week or so. After enjoying Antibes we then went to Saint Paul De Vence. St. Paul de Vence is the fourth most Visited Place in France since it is the haven of the arts. After roaming around and getting lost in the small town of Saint Paul de Vance. We then went to the3rd smallest country in the world Monaco. Monaco is famous for its Casino and the yearly Monaco Grand Prix.  After playing in the Monte Carlo Casino, we then went to the town of the Grasse Region. While on our way we saw the small town of Villefranche Sur Mer. This is where I saw the 400 Million Euro House and Lot. We then went to Fragonard Factory. Here we learned how they make the perfume and bought stuff there. After going to the Grasse Region we then went to Nice. Nice, France which is the Capital of the French Riviera, here you will find a very long beach coast. The sand is very rocky and grey unlike the ones in Cannes. After roaming around Nice, France, we went back to our hotel and rested.
