What to do and see in Côte d’Azur with your luxury car hire French Riviera?
Watch opera in Nice
The French Riviera is not a deserted region from the beginning of autumn. Spent a spectacular night at the famous Opera of Nice. Local people are particularly attached to their opera, a real architectural jewel of the French Riviera. The cultural life is prosperous and the opera concentrates a good number of events of classical music. Anyone can turn up to hear music and distinguished companies perform. This 2018-2019 season, Beethoven is particularly honoured with great masterpieces as the Symphony No. 7 or No. 6, the famous pastoral.
Visit Nice’s Carnival
Go in February and party in the streets where revelers throw thousands of flowers in “flower fights” and where dressing up is hugely encouraged.
Nice’s carnival is the biggest in France and one of the biggest in the world.
Go rock jumping into the sea in Saint-Raphaël
The shoreline along the French Riviera changes while moving east to west. In Cap Dramont, Saint-Raphaël, there are lots of great rocky patches where you dare to jump from. It can be thrilling but be sure to know how deep the water is. Watching can be fun too for those who decide against taking the plunge.
Party like a rock God in St. Tropez
Saint-Tropez has a reputation for being very glamour and very chic. And it is. Visiting the local restaurants and bars can be very funny, but the scenery is not to be missed. Enjoy nightlife! Welcome in the world of jetsetters.
Visit the International Cannes Film Festival
Get into any of the good parties, Amfar or Chanel, but head to Cannes during the festival’s run to celebrity spot or just wallow in a very cool atmosphere. People watchers may get lucky and run into someone they recognise.
Eat authentic socca at Cannes Market
Socca is a local chickpea pancake that looks like a crepe. It comes from the region around Nice and its border Italy.
Flower market in Nice
One of the best places to get it is in the flower market in Nice. Stroll the stalls and trying other tempting goodies is also a great experience. Enjoy several numerous restaurants and bars in Cours Saleya, the historic old town, just next to the harbor. Enjoy the amazing view on the Mediterranean from the Castle Hill, overlooking the city, port and the mountains in the background.
Wath the sunset from a rooftop bar
The French coastline along the Mediterranean Sea is beautiful at sunset and is not to be missed. Some of the best rooftop bars can be found in Nice or along the Croisette in Cannes.
Get acquainted with the painting masters
Many of the world’s best painters came to the French Riviera to paint in the amazing light. Cézanne, Picasso, Matisse and Chagall lived in the region. On the first Sunday of every month, French museums are free to enter.
Party at an outdoor festival and in the streets
Summer festivals are great, but they’re even better when they’re held in good Provençale sunshine.
The « Fête de la Musique » has a good range of music and ages, for one night every year in June. Held in many major cities across the Riviera and France, the festival is a free music event. It’s great to do it on the French Riviera because of the climate. Participating towns allow everyone to party in the streets to hundreds of different kinds of music.
Experience some real jazz at Nice’s jazz festival
The Côte d’Azur has a strong association with jazz. American soldiers brought it over when they were stationed in French Riviera during World War 1 and during the 1920s. And American expats fueled their hedonistic parties with jazz music.
Jazz in Juan-les-Pins is a seaside festival with all the biggest names in Jazz. Taking place in July every year at the Gould Pine Grove, the festival is the oldest in Europe. It remains a fantastic melting pot where different trends are blend together.
Kayak through Europe’s answer to the Grand Canyon
The Gorges du Verdon is Europe’s largest canyon and a must-see for anyone who likes the outdoors, where the river meets the lake Sainte-Croix. Don’t miss Point Sublime through the canyon or head to Sillans-la-Cascade. Walk the trail for 30 minutes to find the waterfall.
Improve your wine knowledge
Discover Provence, a huge exporter of rosé wine because the climate and soil make for ideal growing conditions. It’s normally true that the local table wine is better than some very expensive rosé wine found in restaurants overseas. It’s time to discover the vineyards and how they’re grown in the numerous “Chateaux” across the region.
