Honeymoons & Destination Weddings

The spectacular scenery and glamorous vibe found along the coast in the southeast corner of France has been drawing royalty, artists, writers, and movie stars to the area for hundreds of years. I love the idea of a road-trip honeymoon, and I think the best way to explore the French Riviera is from behind the wheel, without a deadline. This itinerary will take you and your newly minted husband or wife through some of the most romantic spots along the Côte d'Azur. First stop? The charming seaside town of Nice and the grand Palais de la Méditerranée (pictured, above). Most of this historic property's guest rooms feature balconies with views of the city or the sea, but the luxurious junior suites, with their expansive terraces overlooking the Mediterranean, are worth every penny.
