1 Vieux Port, Marseille
The old trading port, with its restaurants, beautiful sunsets and nightlife, attracts the most colourful characters in southern France.
2 Les Calanques
The limestone cliffs between Marseille and Cassis make for excellent hikes leading to isolated coves in which to go swimming.
3 Îles de Port-Cros and St-Honorat
These well-preserved islands offer a glimpse of what much of the coast must have looked like a hundred years ago.
4 Massif des Maures
This undeveloped range of hazy coastal hills is a world apart from the glitz and glamour of the Côte.
5 Fondation Maeght
Modern art, architecture and landscape fuse to create a stunning visual experience.
The Riviera’s capital of street life is laidback, surprisingly cultured and easy to enjoy, whatever your budget.
