Geographically, the Côte d’Azur is not much more than a small stretch of coastline, but this small region has a grandeur that has simply enchanted the world. In the 60 miles (about 96 km) ranging from Monaco to St. Tropez along the coast of the French Riviera, you can find ancient villages, sophisticated nightclubs, shops of renowned designers and traditional open air markets, always accompanied by high cuisine and fine wines.
Start and finish in the Principality of Monaco, where you may want to try your luck in the famous Monte Carlo Casino and then take a tour through several typical towns of the French Riviera, with their unique shops, marinas that are practically within the city and unmissable restaurants. You can also stay on board your yacht for events like the Cannes Film Festival or the annual Monaco Grand Prix where charter yachts do not move out of the harbour but provide luxurious accommodation with an incomparable view of the race.
Immortalized by F. Scott Fitzgerald in “Tender is the Night” and popularized by Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in “To Catch a Thief”, the Riviera is on everyone’s list as a lifetime “must” area to visit – and those that visit by sea will understand this even more.
