You don’t really need a reason to visit the Côte d’Azur, but a visit to enjoy the Christmas season is as good as any. All along the Côte d’Azur small Christmas markets dot the landscape from December to the New Year. The two largest ones are in Nice and Monaco where “chalets” sell regional Christmas specialties, and children can enjoy rides and street performers.
