Gay Travel: Nice and Cannes on the French Riviera
The French Riviera, or Cote d'Azur, ranks among Europe's most enduring - and alluring - gay playgrounds. True, this stretch of rugged Mediterranean coastline at the southeastern tip of France doesn't generate quite as much buzz with GLBT travelers as Sitges, Ibiza, or Mykonos, as it's not a pure party playground. But the sunny and sophisticated French Riviera (www.frenchriviera-tourism.com) is ideal for a romantic getaway, and the most gay-popular communities - Cannes and Nice - abound with beautiful beaches, chic shopping, exceptional art museums, and atmospheric cafes and open-air markets.

Nice

Nice (www.nicetourisme.com) - the largest city in the region, with about 350,000 residents and an international airport with direct flights from North America - also supports an active GLBT organization, AGLAE (www.aglae06.fr) which sponsors Gay Pride each July and produces a gay guide to that's distributed free at many businesses. The city is home to several fine museums, including the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, and the Matisse Museum of Nice. This is also a fine city for shopping, with dozens of upscale boutiques set along Rue Pastorelli and Rue du Marechal Joffre, including the famous Galeries Lafayette department store.

For great views of the city and harbor, climb the stairs to Castle Hill and stroll among the botanical gardens and medieval ramparts, soaking up the views of the bustling port neighborhood - you can see for miles up and down the coast. At the base of the hill, bustling, Old Town's narrow streets, classic architecture, esteemed galleries, and open-air flower and food markets contain a number of the city's gay-frequented businesses.
