The French Riviera is known all over the world for its glamour and beauty. On our recent trip to the French Riviera we stopped at a few places, which are a must-see spots.
Along the way, we dined in some of the best gourmet restaurant that French Riviera offers. In order to really leave an impact I have divided all the places we visited in their own posts. In that way, I can really describe every trip and experiences we had at some excellent fine dining restaurants. So keep tune!
GRACE OF MONACO
So, our trip began in Monaco. To be exact we landed in Nice and from there drove to Monte Carlo in a rented cabriolet. It was exciting driving along side the beautiful beaches and spotting some new destinations on the way. Monte Carlo is the perfect mix of the excitement of city life with quiet old town charm. The main street are filled with all luxury fashion brands boutiques where they sell the newest collection. They are also surrounded with some of the best restaurants. We stayed at the Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat, a Four Seasons Hotel which embodies the classic glamour and timeless chic of the French Riviera. The Hotel offers some exquisite dining experiences, so we have decided to try some French Mediterranean food in their Michelin-starred fine dining restaurant, called Le Cap.
After a delicious meal, we stopped for a drink at the most famous and touristic Casino Square, where you can admire all the luxury fast cars parked in front the casino or either the Hotel. Close by is the Prince’s Palace of Monaco, the current and official residence of the Prince of Monaco.
Most of the time when people travel to this kind of places forget about the charm of beautiful historic villages outside the cities. Eze village is one of the most picturesque spots in the region.
Another place worth seeing while in Monaco is the Oceanographic Museum. It offers a unique opportunity to know, love and protect the oceans. The museum itself is one of the finest in Monaco, holds some of the best exhibits, which some were very interesting and educational for kids. My son absolutely adored it! I would also suggest to check out the rooftop and admire the beautiful view of the whole city.
Our journey on the French Riviera continued in Cannes, so stay tuned for the next blog post to find out more about luxury spots and gourmet dining.
