CRUISE THE COTE D’AZUR & ENJOY “LA BELLE VIE”
Whether you want to call it “the French Riviera” in English, or “the Cote d’Azur” en français, we suggest using one simple word to describe the alluring southeastern coastline of France: Magnifique!
The French Riviera, as we’ll call it for now, is one the most glamorous places on Earth, where the crystalline sparkle of its azure waters are rivaled only by the dazzling nightlife and bejeweled citizens. (Even Fodor’s Travel references the region’s inordinate number of ports “where the per-capita population of billionaires must be among the highest on the planet”!)
But in amongst all the glitz and glam is a storied area of the world that has transfixed artists and writers, peasants and nobility, and tycoons and travelers alike for centuries. Is it because of the seemingly tropical climate, palm trees, and golden beaches? Or is it the bounty of fish and flora, villages and vineyards that grace the Cote’s shores and the mountains that seduces so many?
Perhaps you’ll have a completely different opinion on why it’s special here—once you take a journey with Azamara to the Cote d’Azur...we mean, the French Riviera!
