CRUISE TO THE "CATWALK BY THE SEA" FOR THE ULTIMATE GLAMOUROUS HOLIDAY

It is hard to believe that this glamourous haunt of the glitterati was once a sleepy fishing village, but traces of its past do remain. The old harbour of St Pierre still shelters a flotilla of fishing boats alongside the luxurious super yachts, and Le Suquet, the heart of the old town, is still is a cobbled maze of picturesque lanes. It’s a bit of a climb, but earns you the opportunity to engage in one of the most important and longstanding pastimes of the Riviera – people watching from a sidewalk café. If uphill is not your direction of choice, head the other way, for a stroll along Le Croisette, the seaside promenade so fashionable that it is now sometimes referred to as the "catwalk by the sea."
