France: Postcards from the Côte d'Azur

From Seaside to Tippy-Top Medieval Ruins
Walking the sentier du littoral from Nice to Menton, France -  Côte d’Azur
Basilica St. Michel - Menton, France


Menton is the best-kept secret in France. Where the upcoming Fête du citron (Lemon Festival) begins on
February 11, 2017.  With its incredible exterior, the bell-tower and the colored cobblestones
all arranged to form the Grimaldi’s coat of arms. Saint Michel is a jewel of baroque architecture.  
View atop Eze Village
This commune is located on the French Riviera, extending from Èze-sur-Mer to the hilltop.
Where the medieval village of Èze, and Saint-Laurent-d'Eze connects these villages.
Iconic diving boards near the port in Nice have been transformed into a stylish bar-restaurant  www.leplongeoir.com

When walking the seaside footpaths along the French Riviera your will find this Coexist Fountain and others promoting peaceful coexistence (project  is spearheaded by Bono).

  1. Fabulous photos! What a lovely idea the Coexit Fountains are. Can dogs drink the water that collects at the bottom of the fountain or is that considered bad manners do you think?

    1. I'm sure dogs do get a refreshing drink from the fountains.
