For dedicated travellers and for readers who simply want to sit back and dream

The Riviera is a name that conjures sparkling seas and endless sunshine-palm trees, outdoor cafes and tanning bodies on the sand. But behind the stereotype of wealth and glamour lies one of Europe's most beautiful and accessible tourist locations. While renovating her apartment in the medieval ramparts of Ventimiglia, New Zealander Carolyn McKenzie was stunned by the variety of inspiring places that surrounded her. From Cervo in Italy to Massif de l'Esterel in France, discover a different Riviera. Delve beneath the surface and unearth the art, architecture and culture of this enticing destination. Includes a full-colour insert.
