Coastal Road Trip
One of the absolute best things to do in the French Riviera is to take a drive along the Corniche d’Or or Golden Coast. It’s a 20-mile long route down the coast of the Mediterranean, that offers breathtaking views and hairpin turns. To do it right rent a convertible, wear a pair of loose jeans
that are comfortable to sit in, and throw a headscarf
and sunglasses on for an effortlessly old-school glamorous look.
Whether you’re hitting the beach in Antibes, Nice, or San Tropez you’re going to want to step up your normal beach look. Chic one-pieces are in vogue, especially paired with a simple, yet stunning coverup. French men like to wear shorter colorful swim trunks paired with a breezy shirt.
The street markets in the French Riviera are some of the best in the world. The fresh olives, bread, and of course the cheese is incredible. For a day exploring markets like Nice’s Cours Selaya, you’ll want to keep it casual in a pair of jeans and a nice top. Make sure to bring your market tote with you for all the goodies you buy.
Island Hopping (Iles d’ Hyeres)
Off the coast of the French Riviera, there’s a group of Islands that offer unforgettable views and delicious seafood. For a day exploring the Islands wear something that will match the scenery for incredible photos. A white dress and Platform Espadrilles will look great with the blue water and white-washed houses. The ferry ride over can get a little windy, so make sure to bring a sweater along.
Hilltop villages — Saint Paul de Vence/ Eze
The French Riviera has many small village towns, and a couple are built into the hills, namely Saint Paul de Vence and Eze. Both of the towns are perfect for spending a day discovering the winding streets. Being a hilltop town the roads can get pretty steep, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes and something breathable like shorts and a t-shirt.
Villa Touring ( Ephrussi de Rothschild)
Spread across the French Rivera there are many impressive villas that you can tour. The most famous is Ephrussi de Rothschild. While visiting an extravagant home, you’ll want to look the part. Wear a pair of elegant trousers with a show-stopping top top.
While Monaco isn’t technically France, it is oftentimes considered to be part of the French Rivera. If you decide to go to Monaco while you’re traveling, you’ll want to wear the best things you’ve packed. The country has strict dress codes, men will need pants and closed-toed shoes to get into places like the Monte Carlo Casino.
