Bike Tour in Côte d'Azur

The Azure water turns into white beaches and that into rolling purple hills

Find Tour in Côte d'Azur

The French Riviera is the cream of European tourism for a century

Côte d'Azur or simply the French Riviera is the Mediterranean seafront of the south-east corner of France, nearby to Italy. A bike tour at Côte d'Azur is an obvious choice if you like: the Sun, the turquoise water, the white beach in between the town and vibrant coastal life of Provence!

Bike tours on the Côte d'Azur may range from going to the restaurant to peddling for kilometres on the promenade. But hills, mountains, and busy cities are in no shortage either. The cities Monaco and Nice are located here on the sandy beach. The modern city-state of Monaco is veiled on three sides with France, and one with the beautiful sea. The France city of Nice has a remarkable old town, where music and chatter mix with the smell of the fresh catch.

Where the promenade never ends

This old town is a perfect starting point for a bike tour on the Côte d'Azur, since the inside is hardly accessible by car, yet the roads lead right onto the seaside paths that lead toward the modern city centre and beyond. Beyond, because if you take this same route westward as your bike tour aim in Côte d'Azur, you will leave the city of Nice and in a mere 25km of beautiful, and bustling beaches you will see a natural reserve and maritime park before reaching the remarkable city of Antibes.

If you prefer to leave the noise of the beach behind for serenity of the hills and mountains, you are in luck too. A bike tour in Côte d'Azur doesn’t have to be linear, as the beach goes. In fact, many of the coasts are jagged with cliffs, but the region in large also consists of rolling hills. These hills will show you the picturesque Provence landscape, distinct from the Riviera. Leander fields of churches change vine-yards of manors here. Côte d'Azur has it all!
