Film Festival and Glamour: World-famous for its annual film festival, Cannes is synonymous with international stars and the film industry. The city flaunts beautiful beaches, luxury shopping along the Croisette, and a vibrant nightlife.

Playground for the Rich and Famous: Once a humble fishing village, it is now a hotspot for celebrities and jet-setters. Saint-Tropez is known for its exclusive beach clubs, marina, and nightlife.

Principality of Luxury: Although not technically part of France, the principality of Monaco is inextricably linked to the Côte d'Azur. It is known for its Monte Carlo casino, the Monaco Grand Prix, and as a tax haven for the super-rich.
