  • As an architect I enjoyed Kerylos. The audio guide is good, perhaps a bit too detailed, but worth getting. I find the synthesis of Greek architecture with modern conveniences fascinating.
  • We frequently holiday on Cap Ferrat but had missed this place tucked away. Worth a couple of hours. Some nice eateries in nearby Beaulieu too.
