French Riviera Cities
The Côte d'Azur resort town of Agay sits on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Mediterranean coast, between Cap Dramont and Baumette, and is the natural water entrance to the Massif de l'Estérel.
The city of Antibes is located on the headland of the Bay of Angels, opposite Nice. The city was founded by the Phocian Greeks in the 4th century BC. Its name corresponds exactly to its geographical location: Antipolis means "the city in front of Nice". From the 5th century onwards, the Greeks of Massalia made factories on the Mediterranean coast, trading with the local Ligurian tribes.
The picturesque mountain village of Biot occupies a hilltop overlooking the Brag valley. It is rich in historical and architectural monuments, especially the beautiful 12th century arches that form the Arcade Square in the heart of the village.
Beaulieu-sur-mer is located on the other side of Cap Ferrat, among the mountain hills that protect the city from the winds. It is the warmest place on the Côte d'Azur, which is especially valuable for winter holidays.
