Welcome to Côte d’Azur and the French Riviera!
The French Riviera, also referred to as the Côte d’Azur is the area that stretches along the Mediterranean in the south of France. In this French Riviera map, you can find all the cities, villages, principalities, metropolitan areas, and seaside resorts, with the largest cities on the French Riviera, pinpointed.
Since the Côte d’Azur has no official borders, this French Riviera map has no clear borderlines of where the French Riviera begins and ends. The broadest definition, however, is that the French Riviera begins at the France-Italy border, with Menton being the last town, to the city of Toulon or Cassis.
In this French Riviera map, however, the last town in the west that is marked is Ramatuelle.
