Places like Nice, Monaco, Cannes and St Tropez may bring images of international celebrities to mind, but what makes the French Riviera a truly attractive travel destination is its rich cultural heritage and fabulous sceneries. Located between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea, Cote d’Azur is a year-round destination – only outdoors activities vary accoding to the season. Here is a list of the best of the region.
When authors and photographers collect material for travel guidebooks, they take hundreds or thousands of photos and perhaps video clips from a destination. As a book project progresses into final manuscript stage and a graphic designer begins to create the layout for the book, hard choices have to be made.
Plenty of beautiful photographs and fun videos have to be left out from the book because every element must add value to the content – even though the space is not that limited in an ebook as it used to be in paper books.
Here is a video clip that was shot on a mountain just above the city of Nice in Cote d’Azur, France. The valley of river Var looms in the background. The video was intended for the book The Gems of Nice and the French Riviera.
There are many fabulous destinations in France. Probably the most sunny and glamorous is the French Riviera in Provence. Practically everyone has some kind of image of Cannes, Monaco or Nice in their mind, but the region is much more than beaches, bikinis or casinos. The Riviera is actually very much about mountains, medieval villages, sea, art, food, cafes and marvelous scenery.
The Gems of Nice and the French Riviera is a guidebook for visitors who can take a tour in the top destinations of the region before leaving home. The multimedia ebook is packed with photographs, information about sights, tips, and videos that highlight unique activities or happenings.
