3 Things You Have To Do When Visiting The French Riviera

The French Riviera is packed full of places to visit, things to do, and sites to see, but if you are short of time or you want to ensure that you enjoy some of the very best that the region has to offer, then there are certain activities that you have to try.

When you book your next Riviera trip, you can’t possibly visit the Riviera without gambling (responsibly) in Monte Carlo, spotting luxury yachts while drinking champagne in St Tropez, and you have to take photos from the beautiful medieval village of Eze in the hills above the Mediterranean Sea.

Have A Flutter At Monte Carlo Casino

Monte Carlo Casino is known around the world, and it attracts celebrities and stars from every country. Monaco itself is only small, but it has appealing and alluring tax laws, which means that many a mega-rich celebrity has taken up residential status in the principality. Those that don’t live in Monte Carlo, visit regularly, and one of the spots where they can be spotted is in the Casino.

Every inch of Monte Carlo Casino screams luxury and opulence, from the architecture, which was designed by Charles Garnier who also built the Paris Opera House, to the Café de Paris, which has hosted the likes of King Edward VII.

Spot Yachts At St Tropez

St Tropez is another spot on the Riviera that has a very high celebrity per capita rate, and one of the favorite pastimes of many visitors is trying to spot celebrities in the cafes, bars, and other venues.

Once home to fishing boats, the port is now lined with multi-million-pound yachts, which you can gaze longingly at while sipping champagne, or enjoying a spot of fine French cuisine, at one of the restaurants that line the old port.

Take Photos At Eze Medieval Village

After gambling, drinking champagne and ogling yachts, you may want to try something a little more sedate. The medieval village of Eze may not attract quite the same level of celebrity, but it is no less breathtaking in its own unique way.

The cobblestoned streets, exceptional panoramas of the Cap-Ferrat coastline, and La Chevre d’Or, which is a luxury hotel housed in a 14th Century chateau, make this village worth visiting, and you should ensure that you have your camera ready and batteries charged so that you can make the most of those stunning views. On a clear day, you can see from Italy to St. Tropez.
