Things to see and do on the Cote d'Azur
The Cote d'Azur is packed with things to see and do whilst on your summer holidays. Here are a few suggestions...
- No matter where you are staying along this coastline, a visit to the glamourous Monte Carlo is always on the agenda. Driving along the coast road during the height of summer can be a nightmare plus parking in Monte Carlo is not easy. The hassle free way is to take the train
- If you are visiting in winter, the ski resorts of Isola 2000 and Vars are both under 2 hours drive away and are perfect for beginner and intermediate skiers
