The Côte d'Azur lies at France’s most south-eastern point. It is a beautiful region with a blue sea, white beaches, sycamore trees, orange trees and fine historic cities such as Nice. It is well worthwhile investigating Nice. Lose yourself in the old centre’s narrow little streets and discover the atmosphere, the cultural heritage of the city and its fine parks. Life in Nice continues for 24 hours a day. By day on the beach or in the water, at night in the restaurants, casinos and nightclubs. But the French Riviera also has a name to maintain where culture is concerned. After Paris, Nice has the largest number of museums per square kilometre.

The City of Light, as Paris is affectionately called, was originally established on the Île de la Cité, but has since spread out so much that it now also engulfs the towns on the hills in the vicinity. The city is subdivided into twenty districts, which in turn, are subdivided into a total of 81 quarters. Paris is cut in half by the river Seine, along which you will also find many of the places worth seeing.

Here the people work, think and live the way they have always done in this beautiful coastal area. The old part of the town is located between the train station and the marina. Here you will find many narrow streets, fountains and beautiful town squares.
