"The Riviera isn't just a sunny place for shady people" - William Somerset
Monaco, Nice and Cannes are part of the Mediterranean coastline of the southeast corner of France. They are one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations, commonly known as the French Riviera. The French Riviera was arguably one of the world’s first modern resort areas. However, it has also been popular with many artists and writers, including Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Edith Wharton, Somerset Maugham, and Aldous Huxley, as well as wealthy Americans and Europeans.
