Côte d’Azur:

The Côte d'Azur - engl. "the azurblue coast", also French Riviera - is a section of the French Mediterranean coast.

It is a part of the region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur with the coastal borders of the Départements Bouches-du-Rhône, Var and Alpes-Maritimes as well as the principality Monaco.

Known places are: Saint-Tropez, Antibes, Cannes, Nice, Monaco and Menton.

The region is very mountainous with the Maritime Alps and the Massif of the Maures. There's an azureblue sky during 300 days a year and that's what gave its name to the region at the end of the 19th century. Also typically for the western Côte d'Azur are the red rocks of the coast. The Alps fall precipitously into the sea in the east.
