The United Nations tourism organisation has revealed that France is the most visited nation in the world in terms of international arrivals, with visitors regularly topping over 70 million a year. This is largely because France is famous for offering its visitors almost everything that they could desire. Beyond gastronomical delights and top class wines for parents, there is an infinite amount of activities for families amongst the stunning backdrop of the famous French Riviera. Steeped in History, the area is incredibly diverse. The region really does have something for everyone.

When the sun is shining, as it often does in the French Riviera, nothing beats the rides, slides and pools of a waterpark, leaving the kids tired out! Aqualand Water Parks are ideal and are located across seven locations in the South of France including Fejus, Cap’ D’adge, Bassin D’archanon, Saint Cyprien and Saint Maxime. Unbeatable destinations. When you’re exhausted from the parks you can watch the marine wildlife and the famous killer whale shark shows at Marineland in Antibes. For those interested in history, there are a large number of museums across the region often based in the number of Roman ruins in the area. The French Riviera pass allows you unlimited and free access to the museums and tourist sites in Nice and the surrounding areas, allowing you to take advantage of a number of special offers within a carefully selected range of businesses.

The stunning coastline of the south of France also provides unlimited opportunities for family fun. Quality time can be spent on the beach, building sandcastles, swimming in the sea and having picnics.
