From Marseille to Nice: La Côte d'Azur by Car

Are you considering doing a road trip on the Côte d'Azur? If you said yes, then look no further. This blog post will give you a brief yet comprehensive guideline of what to do to maximize your stay in this beautiful region of France.
First and foremost, you need to rent a car, and there is no better car rental service then Easy Car Booking. You will be able to choose between a minivan, if you are traveling with your family, or even a Mercedes coupe if you are just traveling with a loved one. The choice is yours.
Secondly, what cities should you visit? There are a bunch of cities to visit in the South of France but there just isn’t enough time to visit them all. Below is a list of all the most highly recommended cities that enjoy visits all year round:

·      Marseille à Cassis (45 miles/ 75 km, 1 hour)
Marseille is city full of French history. Whether you are a diehard fan of Alexander Dumas’ novel, The Count of Monte Cristo, or you just want to visit a number of famous sites, then Marseille is an ideal place to visit. Here is a list of all Marseille’s main points of interests. 
Cassis is a must-see city for those who are fanatics about wine and beautiful scenery. Cassis is visited year round for their white and rosé wines, but more so for their breathtaking seaside cliffs called les Calanque de Cassis which can be visited by kayak, boat, or on foot. 

·      Cassis à St. Tropez (70 miles/ 112 km, 1 hour 40 minutes)
St. Tropez has now become world famous due to the endless celebrity sightings and lavish lifestyle experienced there during the peak season. However, St. Tropez still holds its charm as an authentic French fishing village. If you are a fan of good food, nice beaches, and mega-yachts, then St. Tropez is a must on your list of cities to visit by car. 

·      St. Tropez à Théoule-sur-Mer (52miles/ 84 km, 1 hour)
Théoule-sur-Mer is one of the less popular destinations during the summer, but that doesn’t mean it’s a sight worth seeing. This city is blanketed by the rich, red rock of Esterel, over looking the glistening deep blue water of the Mediterranean. The drive through this city resembles a lot to the drive on Pacific Coast Highway in California. You can also spot Pierre Cardin’s world famous house!

·      Théoule-sur-Merà Cannes (8 miles/ 12km, 20 minutes)
Just a short drive away is the magnificent city of Cannes. This city has become world famous mainly due to the Cannes Film Festival that has been around since 1946. Enjoy the luxury and lavish lifestyle of this gem by doing all of the points of interests

·      Cannes à Nice (20 miles/ 33km, 40 minutes)
Nice is the ultimate destination on the French Riviera. Located just next to the airport, this city is nearly twice as big as Cannes and holds its French charm while still being progressive. Nice will be the perfect final destination for your road trip along the Côte d'Azur. Just make sure to see as much as possible!
