travelling & tourism: nice, monaco, cannes and antibes, Côte d’Azur, french riviera

With exclusive hotels lining mostly private stretches of sandy beach — Cannes, along the French Riviera, is for strolling, dreaming of meeting a movie star, and lounging on the seafront. Just up the coast, Antibes has a down-to-earth, easy going ambience, and an excellent Picasso Museum.

In this program, we follow in the footsteps of 19th-century aristocrats along Nice’s Promenade des Anglais. Then we listen to the graceful reshuffling of personal fortunes at the casino in fairy-tale Monaco, and visit the picturesque artist hangouts of Chagall, Matisse, and Picasso.
