The French Riviera is the place to mix with the rich and famous in Monaco and Monte Carlo, while Nice is a shopper's paradise and Cannes is home to the Film Festival and a luxury yacht lined harbour. Take the children for a fun day with Mickey & Minnie at Disneyland Paris where the five Magical Lands - Main Street USA, Fantasyland, Frontierland, Adventureland and Discoveryland are just waiting to be explored. The Parc Aquarium du Perigord du Noir at Le Buque sur Vezere and the Aqua Parc Junior Land in Bergerac will both also hit the spot with families too in The Dordogne.
