There are many villages and landscapes that are worth seeing in the French Riviera, other than the popular cities like Nice, Monaco or Marseille. For example, how about discovering Monaco and Nice, but with a stop in the beautiful medieval village of Eze perched on the top of a mountain and offering an amazing view on the coastline.
Or how about walking in the charming streets of Biot, a village famed for its glass artisans, on your way to the city of Grasse?
Saint Paul de Vence, Cassis, Antibes… These towns all offer their own charm and specialties, or maybe a spectacular typical market on certain days of the week. I would be a pity to miss these great places while spending a family holiday in the French Riviera with your children.
