The French Riviera, known in France as the Côte d'Azur, boasts a sub-tropical climate, sandy beaches, vineyards, and an average of 300 days of sunshine a year. World-class museums, the Nice Carnival, Cannes Film Festival, and the Monaco Grand Prix make the French Riviera an exciting Mediterranean region in which to study abroad. Discovered by Greek sailors around 400 BC, over the years the French Rivera has attracted the likes of Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, Coco Chanel, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Pablo Picasso -- all regular visitors to this stunning locale.
