Stretching from the Italian border at Menton to the Esterel peninsula in the south of France, La Côte d’Azur is a Mediterranean destination that enjoys over 300 days of sunshine a year. Celebrated as a playground for the rich and famous it also offers a unique natural environment with mild climate and exceptional light, sought out by scores of famous artists.   Not only is there the most stunning coastline, offering lovely walking paths around the ‘Cap’s, but pristine natural landscapes extending all the way to the Southern Alps.


New for 2014 is the COTEDAZUR-CARD, a single electronic pass, that gives you access to all the best the Côte d’Azur has to offer, and saves you money. This is a completely new idea, not yet tried in any other part of France.  As the activities are all included, it is believed that this may encourage visitors to try different things that may otherwise have been ignored if they had to pay for them individually.  With the one card you have a choice of over 115 different things to choose from all over La Côte d’Azur.

Importantly it includes access to the Côte d’Azur’s main cultural and tourist sights and an extremely diversified range of sporting, recreational, creative, maritime and mountain activities. From Menton to St-Raphaël including Monaco, from the coast of the Riviera to the peaks of the Mercantour Mountains, over 115 “all-inclusive” activities… as well as exclusive advantages and gifts are included.

Let’s hope it catches on as it’s such a great idea and very reasonable too
