Head west from Nice to famed locales such as Antibes, Cannes and Saint Tropez. Antibes, for one, is known as the yachting capital of the Mediterranean. Set sail on a private charter, or, if you’re more of an arts aficionado, head to the Picasso Museum at Grimaldi Castle. For an indulgent stayover, drive out to Cap d’Antibes, home to the world famous Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc–the site of Chanel fashion shows, multi million dollar weddings and celebrity honeymoons over the years. Cannes and Saint-Tropez are other well-known hotspots. The former hosts the high-profile Cannes Film Festival, while the latter, popularized by Brigitte Bardot in the 1950’s, promises lush gardens, intimate restaurants, and lively nightclubs.
