Cannes, France
Cannes is the sister city to Beverly Hills and the chic epicenter of the French Riviera – a world of exclusive boutiques, palm-lined avenues, starlet-studded beaches, and elegant sidewalk cafes. While most famous for its Film Festival in May, at the colossal Palais des Festivals, when international celebrities gather to screen films and make deals, it glitters every month with swimming and sunning by day, and a club and casino scene by night. Cannes is the archetypal Mediterranean resort city, discovered by wealthy English nobles who came to the sunny south of France to escape their draughty old castles during the dreary British winters. Cannes' high-flying lifestyle has attracted notables and the notorious ever since.

Lerici, Italy
Lerici is a town and commune in the province of La Spezia in Liguria (northern Italy), part of the Italian Riviera. Its nearest bay is the Bay of Lerici. The town is connected by ferry to the Cinque Terre and Portovenere.

One of the main sights of Lerici is its notorious castle controlling the entrance of the Gulf of La Spezia. Today the castle contains a museum of palaeontology.


Portoferraio, Elba
Sailing into Portoferraio, you can see why Napoleon chose Elba for his exile; an island of pink granite, pine forests, and pristine beaches. The contrasts of the Elba countryside – from its typical fishing villages and high mountain passes to its stylish summer resorts on the coast – are enchanting. Elba’s restaurants feature excellent seafood, and small private vineyards produce local Moscato and Aleatico wines.

From his villa in Portoferraio, Napoleon, no longer Emperor of France, looked out over the waiting ships in the harbor and dreamed of returning to glory. Today you can enjoy a local vineyard tour, and near Portoferraio, discover the remains of an ancient Etruscan civilisation.


Corsica, France


Sardinia


Ajaccio, Corsica, France
The peninsula carries the citadel and terminates in the Citadel jetty. To the south-west of this peninsula lies the Place Bonaparte, a quarter frequented chiefly by winter visitors attracted by the mild climate of the town.

The house in which Napoleon Bonaparte was born in 1769 is preserved, and his associations with the town are everywhere emphasized by street-names and statues.

The town is also home to Ajaccio Cathedral.


Monte Carlo, Monaco
Monaco is the fabled domain of princes and movie stars. The magnificent Palais du Prince (from which the Grimaldi dynasty has ruled since 1297), and the opulent casinos remind you of an elegant, pre-war era. With more wealth concentrated in one small area than almost any place on earth, this tiny principality retains its gilt edged allure.

The fairy-tale kingdom glitters with opulence and jet-set glamor, and the action centers around its famed casinos. Inside, under gilt-edged ceilings and ornate frescoes, fortunes are made, or lost. See the Cathedral where Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier, and the Rock of Monaco, where gardens cascade to the sea.


Cannes, France
Cannes is the sister city to Beverly Hills and the chic epicenter of the French Riviera – a world of exclusive boutiques, palm-lined avenues, starlet-studded beaches, and elegant sidewalk cafes. While most famous for its Film Festival in May, at the colossal Palais des Festivals, when international celebrities gather to screen films and make deals, it glitters every month with swimming and sunning by day, and a club and casino scene by night.

Cannes' high-flying lifestyle has attracted notables and the notorious ever since.

Portofino, Italy
On the hills above, palatial villas in ice-cream colors look down on the tiny harbor and exclusive boutiques and harbor-side cafés. This is Portofino, a name that has come to symbolize the sophisticated, sybaritic lifestyle of the Italian Riviera.

Corsica, France


Calvi, Corsica
Napoleon once said that he could recognize his native island blindfolded because of the wonderful perfume of the maquis. Approaching by sea, it is the first thing you experience about Corsica. The second is its wild and mountainous landscape. Nearby are secluded beaches and the eerie Grottes des Veaux Marins, offering fantastic diving opportunities.

Corsica, France


Scandola Nature Reserve (afternoon sail)
The Scandola Nature Reserve, established in 1975, is located on the French island Corsica, within Corsica Regional Park. The park and reserve has been recognized by the United Nations as a Natural World Heritage Site.

The Scandola Reserve is located on the central, western coast of Corsica. The reserve has two sectors, the Elpa inlet and the peninsula of Scandola. The jagged and sheer cliffs contain many grottos and are flanked by numerous stacks and virtually inaccessible.


Porquerolles, Iles d'Hyeres, France
Porquerolles is an island in Iles d'Hyeres, Cote d'Azur, France with an approximate population of 200. It's length is roughly 4.3 miles and width 1,254 miles. On the north side of the island is a port and beaches.

The island's village was established in 1820, with a lighthouse constructed in 1837 and church in 1850. The entire island was purchased in 1912 by Francois Joseph Fournier as an alleged wedding present for his wife. He planted 500 acres of vineyard which produced a wine that was among the first to be classified as "Vin des Cotes de Provence. Today, most of the island is a national park.


Sanary Sur Mer, France
A pretty town along the Provencal coast, Sanary Sur Mer offers a charming seafront ambience, and interesting streets to wander. Stop off in a café and enjoy excellent rosé from the nearby region of Bandol. During the 1930’s, Sanary, on the Côte d’Azur, was a welcome refuge for German and English ex-patriot intellectuals. Sanary became the home of Aldous Huxley, Thomas Mann, Bertold Brecht, and Wilhelm Herzog. D.H. Lawrence and Jean Cocteau were frequent visitors. All escaped before the German invasion.

St. Tropez, France
Small but chic, St. Tropez is a lively town whose beaches are legendary, both for their beauty and for the beauties on them. Follow the narrow lanes from the waterfront, and you’ll arrive at the oldest part of St. Tropez, where twisting narrow streets open onto tiny squares and fountains. Great views can be had from the 16th-century Citadel, but the most interesting views are from a chair in a sidewalk café: sit on the terrace and watch the fascinating, flirtatious French Riviera pass by.

St. Tropez is a people-watcher's paradise, so you will also want to explore her famous beaches, bistros and bars. The appropriately named Tahiti Plage is where topless sun tanning started, and whether you prefer to take it off or take it all in, there's always plenty to see in St. Tropez.
