Tour de France Week - Côte d'Azur

(All pictures by Allison Steele)

Côte d'Azur is the French term for what we call the French Riviera! Nice (pronounced Niece) is the largest city and is right in the heart of the French Riviera! It's absolutely beautiful, and a wonderful place to vacation! The beaches are a little rocky, but the views are amazing. You can jet ski, parasail, play volleyball, or just walk along the board walk! It is right on the Mediterranean, and the people were charming!

More Nice attractions:

*Promenade des Anglais

*Colline du Chateau (Castle Hill)

*Musee Marc Chagall

*Musee Matisse

*Arenes et Jardins de Cimiez

*Cathedrale Orthodoxe Russe St. Nicolas a Nice

*Monaco - Monte Carlo
