Publication Date: May 29, 2018
Saturated with the limpid colors of sea and sun, the dazzling greens of verdant gardens, and the rose and ochre of sunbaked villas and joyous with paisleys and blue-striped sailor’s shirts and the riotous look of a patisserie window filled with confections, Travels Through the French Riviera is a gift book of visual wonder, the souvenir every Francophile will want. But it is also a quirky yet singularly useful travel guide, whether showing how to order coffee like a local, plan a beach day at Menton, or hike the Cap Ferrat peninsula or where to taste the best ice cream in Antibes (at Amarena—try the mint).

“Part love letter to the Côte d’Azur, part guide to the most poetic and stylish things to do on this magical coast. The dreamy illustrations make me hear the crickets, taste the foods of Provence, feel the mistral wind, and savor sitting in the shade of a Mediterranean pine.”
