Monte Carlo & Grasse Fortunes may be made and lost, but Monte Carlo retains its quiet dignity as home to more millionaires per square mile than anywhere on earth. It's home to one of the world’s most beautiful, and civilised casinos - who knows? You may end up owning one of those luxury yachts that look so inviting down in the harbour below. We also visit a leading perfumery in the historic town of Grasse. St Tropez A jet-set favourite, St Tropez is arguably one of the most famous resorts in the world. Stroll along the port and indulge in some celebrity spotting! You’ll also make a stop at Port Grimaud, known as “Little Venice”, to admire its canals, bridges, boutiques and charming houses. Antibes & Juan Les Pins Antibes is the cultural heart of the Cote D’Azur with its old town, home to the colourful flower market and well worth a visit. Juan Les Pins boasts a beautiful beach and promenade, perfect for an afternoon stroll.

Travel Tip: Make the most of the beaches in St Raphael. They are less crowded, but just as good, as some of the other beaches on the Riviera. Flags are used to let you know if the beach tide is safe for swimming. A green flag gives the all clear for swimming, and a red flag means don’t go in!
