Located on the French coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the French Riviera (Côte d'Azur) has the glamour and glitz challenged only by few places on earth. Although the Riviera is famous for the charm of St. Tropez, Monaco or the Cannes Film Festival, there are many other less well-known attractions, such as the perfumeries of Grasse, the perched villages of Èze and Gourdon, the potters in Vallauris and the glass blowers of Biot. The Côte d'Azur has been the inspiration for many famous artists such as Picasso and Matisse, and many of their works are displayed in local museums and art galleries.
While the French have explored Corsica for ages, many Americans have largely yet to discover at this magical place. The fourth largest island in the Mediterranean - Corsica has it all: charming port towns; green mountains and ribbons of coastline with white sandy beaches; medieval forts and lovely hillside villages. Corsica also has a captivating history, with its mix of cultural connections with Italy, North Africa, and France. Many locals speak an Italian dialect, though the island is French, and religious processions still take place through the cobblestone streets.
Brittany is for explorers who like to stay off the crowds. Its untouched, dramatic coast, old towns, and abundant forests make a trip here well worth. This is a land of ancient mysticism, proud French tradition and culinary wealth, where strongly independent locals celebrate Breton culture, and Paris feels a long way away indeed.
