Whether colorful or made of stones, villages in the French Riviera are beautiful. My favorites : Villefranche sur Mer (sea side) and Tourettes sur Loup (mountain side). There's also St Paul de Vence and Eze, which are more touristic (even during mid-season).

Monaco was surprising ! I was expecting a "bling-bling" place but actually found a very quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Of course, there are the cars making noise, mostly around the Monte-Carlo casino and F1 circuit but everywhere else, especially in the Old Monaco. If can you should also go enjoy the panorama from "Tête de Chien"!

Saint Tropez is another colorful town with a harbor full of expensive yacht. The little streets and the sea path deserve a stop. You can also go up to the Citadelle to enjoy the view.
