The "French Riviera Pass" has been making planning stays easier and better, granting access to the Cote d'Azur's key iconic cultural and sight-seeing locations at the very best rates. Antibes, Cannes and the Iles de Lerins as well as Mougins now sit alongside Monaco, Beaulieu-sur-mer, Biot, Cagnes-sur-mer, Eze, St Jean Cap Ferrat, St Martin Vesubie and Villefranche-sur-mer on the list of sites to discover free of charge.
It has been contactless via NFC (Near Field Communication) since 2014, thus ensuring the French Riviera Pass is part of the Nice Cote d'Azur Metropolis 'digital city' initiative. An optional add-on Lignes d'Azur pass is available for €4/day instead of €6, allowing cardholders to travel freely on the Nice Cote d'Azur Metropolis network - from the Cap d'Ail to Cagnes-sur-mer and the Mercantour resorts - including out to the Nice Cote d'Azur Airport.
In order to ensure that all travellers' tourist needs are met, the French Riviera Pass also gives visitors access to advantages and special offers available from many shops, restaurants and leisure activity operators. These advantages remain valid for a month after initial card activation.
Available in three versions giving visitors 24hr, 48hr or 72hr access, the pass can be bought for €26, €38 and €56 and comes with a 80-page guide translated into French, English, German and Italian.
The pass includes the majority of our must-see sites to ensure visitors don't miss out on Nice's most beautiful locations as well as 'introductory' services and offers, and is available online at frenchrivierapass.com and in over 26 points of sale to date. In 2014, the pass generated over 10,000 visits and tours. Watch a video showcasing its benefits at: nicetourisme.com/french-riviera-pass
Faster, simpler, with more services and versatility: this new version of the card further enhances its appeal in the eyes of the 11 million tourists who flock to the Cote d'Azur every year, often departing from Nice. The pass is just as beneficial when used to discover gems in other towns and cities such as Monaco, Cannes, Antibes and more.
