Open Road brings readers the very best of the beautiful French Riviera and Provence!
On the French Riviera, readers will discover pastel-colored villas with red tile roofs looking down on the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea. In Provence, some travelers come for the savory cuisine and wonderful wines, while others visit quiet villages to get away from it all. There are also some of the world’s best-preserved Roman ruins to see, and elegant seaside resorts where visitors can bask on sun-drenched beaches, and be dazzled by fields of lavender, yellow sunflowers and bright red poppies under brilliant blue skies.
Whatever your reasons to visit, there’s truly something for everyone on the French Riviera and in Provence. Wherever you go, you’ll create colorful memories. Open Road's revised guide to this lovely region offers more than 100 places of interest at your fingertips (from colorful Old Nice to the Papal Palace in Avignon to the wineries in Châteauneuf-du-Pape), with insider tips on cafés, restaurants, hotels, shops, outdoor markets, and where to sample great wines.
This guide covers all the information necessary to plan a trip without burdening readers with long lists of options that simply aren’t worth your precious vacation time. With this guide in hand Open Road travelers will have a great adventure in France!
