Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Rick Steves' visit to the French Riviera begins in Carcassone, the famous medieval walled-fortress community. Walking along the Cote d'Azur, Rick advises that the best (and most economical) time to vacation here is during the off-season. Then he explores the Riviera hill towns, Henri Matisse's celebrated adopted hometown, and (inevitably) the lavish resorts of Nice, Cannes, and Monte Carlo. And thus does the 32nd episode of Travels in Europe With Rick Steves come to a tranquil conclusion.
