5 Places To Visit In The South Of France

5 Places to Visit in the South of France

France is one of the most visited countries in the world, and a lot of that is because of Paris. The “City of Lights” is widely acknowledged to be one of the most striking and romantic cities in the world, and everyone wants to see it at some point in their life. But Paris is far from the only place that draws people to France. In fact, I really wasn’t crazy about Paris when I visited (see here). It is pretty amazing, but there’s more to France than just Paris.

The South of France, however, I LOVED. The people are way friendlier than Parisians, and it’s absolutely beautiful. It’s full of beaches and towns that can make for the vacation of a lifetime. You can tour the whole area, pick a town to spend a week in, or venture south after a trip to Paris to catch all of the country’s highlights. Whatever you decide, here are some of the best places to visit in this part of the country.

Sure, Paris is amazing. Obviously. But one area of France that you definitely don’t want to miss (especially in the summer time) is the Côte d’Azur / French Riviera. Its location on the Southeastern coast of France, and its closeness to the Italian border, is reflected through its gorgeous Mediterranean-sea waters, amazing sunny climate, and Italian-influenced architecture.

The main cities of the French Riviera are Cannes, Nice, and the sovereign state of Monaco. Although I did visit all 3, today I want to highlight my day in the amazing city of Nice (pronounced “niece”).
