VILLA EPHRUSSI DE ROTHSCHILD
Completed in 1912, this rose-coloured villa in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat was the home of Baroness Béatrice de Rothschild. Now a museum, this must-see mansion is filled with antiquities. In the magnificent gardens, there’s a fountain show every 20 minutes.
MUSÉE MARC CHAGALL
This museum in nearby Nice is dedicated to Chagall’s works of religious and spiritual inspiration. Chagall himself created the mosaic which overlooks the pond and the blue stained-glass windows that decorate the concert hall.
Explore one of the world’s largest collections of works by Henri Matisse, the French painter who spent so much time in the area. Housed in a 17th-century villa in Nice, the museum traces his artistic beginnings and shows his evolution through his last works.
One of the most charming spots on the Riviera, Villefranche-sur-Mer feels more like a Provençal village than a resort town. Explore the narrow lanes and charming squares, and don’t miss the chapel by the harbour to see the frescoes by Jean Cocteau.
Like a living museum, this medieval village offers charming shops, art galleries and restaurants. The botanical garden is unique for its collection of cacti and succulents, and the sea view from the hilltop is considered one of the most beautiful in the world.
Just 20 minutes away, this ultra-glamorous principality spills down a steep hillside to a yacht-filled marina. Enjoy the people-watching and designer shopping. Famous highlights include the Café de Paris and the Monte Carlo Casino.
