Destination Côte d' Azur
CANNES AND MONACO KICK OFF THE EUROPEAN FALL BOAT SHOW SEASON. BY JILL BOBROW
Queens of the Riviera: the Cannes and Monaco yacht shows.
The two largest fall boat shows in Europe are the Cannes Yachting Festival and Monaco Yacht Show. Each is held in September, which is a glorious month to be in that part of the world. The hordes of summer vacationers have left, it is easier to get dinner reservations, sunbeds are available at the beach clubs, and you can drive the Corniche in your convertible inhaling fewer traffic fumes. The big bonus is that while you are enjoying the Côte d’Azur, you can also visit all the latest offerings from builders worldwide at the boat shows.
