Nice is the capital of the Riviera, yet far less glamorous and expensive than Cannes. It's also one of the most ancient, having been founded by the Greeks, who called it "Nike," or Victory. Because of its brilliant sunshine and relaxed living, it has attracted in the past famous artists and writers. The best trip center on the Riviera, you can choose to explore region or hang out in its famous cafes. But the most obvious hangout spot here is the beach. The Nice beach is rocks, just rocks so wear a pair of good sandals.

150 years ago Cannes was nothing more than a fishing village. Now it has become an elegant city known round the world and attracts an international clientele. Something's always happening at Cannes: international regattas, galas, concours d'élégance, and even a Mimosa Festival in February, but Cannes is at its most frenzied during the International Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals on promenade de la Croisette. On the seafront boulevards, flashbulbs pop as the stars emerge and pose.

In the 1930s, Juan-les-Pins drew a chic crowd during winter. Today it still attracts young Europeans from many economic backgrounds. Juan-les-Pins is often called a honky-tonk town or the "Coney Island of the Riviera," but anyone who calls it that hasn't seen Coney Island in a long time. F. Scott Fitzgerald himself has decried it as a "constant carnival."
