Trip Report

Five days in the South of France

Certain parts of the South of France are charming and worth visiting; others are nice but not incredibly charming. Hotel-du-Cap is a must-visit, even if you don't stay there.

France, Monaco5 days / July 2019

Highs & Lows

Day trip to Monte Carlo!

Cannes was mostly rainy and didn't have a ton of character. I wish I had stayed in St. Tropez instead.

Itinerary Overview

Spent a few days exploring Cannes, shopping, and going to the beach. Took one day trip to Hotel-du-Cap Eden Roc and another to Monaco, which were both awesome and made me wish we were staying somewhere that wasn't Cannes. 

Certain parts of the South of France are charming and worth visiting; others are nice but not incredibly charming. Hotel-du-Cap is a must-visit, even if you don't stay there.
