What is The Côte d’Azur?

Apr 28th, 2011 | By | Category: News

The Côte d'AzurThe Côte d’Azur, also known in English as the French Riviera, is the Mediterranean coastline of the southeast corner of France, also including well-known places such as the sovereign state of Monaco, Nice and St.Tropez. There is no official boundary, but it is usually considered to extend from either Menton in the east(which is almost on the border with Italy) to Saint Tropez Live Sex, Hyères or Cassis in the west.

The Name of Côte d’Azur was given to the coast by the French writer Stéphen Liégeard in his book, La Côte d’azur, published in December 1887. Stéphen Liégeard was born in Dijon, in the French department of Côte-d’Or, and adapted that name by substituting the azure blue colour of the Mediterranean for the gold of Côte-d’Or.
