COMITÉ RÉGIONAL
DU TOURISME
CÔTE D’AZUR
(FRENCH RIVIERA
TOURIST BOARD)
With nearly 10.4 million tourists every year generating
business worth 4.5 billion Euros the French Riviera ranks
as the leading French tourist destination after Paris.
The world’s ultimate tourist reference, the French Riviera
single-handedly accounts for 1.2% of the total
international tourist market and nearly 10% of France’s
international tourist revenue.
The French Riviera tourist industry is the leading economic
sector in the Alpes-Maritimes providing over 75 000 direct
jobs. It is both a precious asset and makes a significant
contribution to the development of this exceptional
territory.
The Comité Régional du Tourisme Côte d’Azur is a
government agency which manages the trademark. It works
closely with all tourist industry players such as politicians,
institutions or industry professionals in the context of a
territorial marketing approach designed to benefit the
Alpes-Maritimes area plus the Principality of Monaco as a
whole.
The CRT participates in defining and implementing the
departmental tourist strategy in liaison with the Conseil
général des Alpes-Maritimes, institutional (State, Region,
CCI Nice Côte d’Azur, Team Côte d’Azur, UDOTSI, OTSI,
territorial poles …) and industry partners.
Its core mission is to drive the destination’s tourist
marketing and development. Through its expertise and its
know-how, the CRT provides active support for the large
scale projects promoted by the department entities and
local authorities through specific partnerships.
> A territorial marketing mission
The CRT Côte d’Azur project manages the territorial
marketing of the French Riviera. Its mission is to forge
operational links between the French Riviera and foreign
markets by levering its prime relay network of Atout France
offices across the world.
The CRT supports the promotion, communication and precommunication of all of the destination’s features to the
French market and the main foreign tourist markets in a
marketing strategy specialised by target: “B to B” marketing,
“B to C” marketing, “B to B to C” marketing and “themed”
marketing.
The CRT has placed the Internet at the heart of the French
Riviera’s marketing strategy. It has introduced a new
destination trademark boosted by the July 2009 launch of
the new ® portal, an e-marketing tool promoting destination
communication and promotion.
Its initiatives are founded on its perfect knowledge of the
French Riviera tourist offer and the market which makes it
possible to implement targeted measures: traditional
promotional campaigns, targeted e-marketing campaigns,
media and press actions, specialised public relations …
The Convention Bureau Riviera Côte d’Azur acts as the
territorial marketing arm of the CRT. It is totally dedicated
to business tourism and congresses. It is the first regional
Convention bureau in France to date. A true facilitator, the
Convention Bureau acts as a single point of contact for all
events organisations and provides an interface with the
French Riviera tourist industry and institutional players. It
works in four segments of the business tourism industry:
corporate events, professional trade shows, association
congresses and incentives.
> A tourist engineering mission
The CRT Côte d’Azur adheres to the guidelines defined by
the Conseil Régional PACA and the Conseil général des
Alpes-Maritimes. It is a prominent player in the territory’s
tourism development strategy.
It provides an engineering consulting and assistance role
vis-à-vis its partners. To promote the tourist marketing mix
and participate in its qualification the CRT implements
global and segment (setting up themed clubs…)
development initiatives.
This work is based on expert report, innovation, quality
operations and by assisting market launches of products
and structures. Labelling, accessibility for all, sustainable
tourism also benefit from CRT support in terms of qualifying
products, professionals and territories.
> An observation & monitoring mission
The Observatoire du Tourisme des Alpes-Maritimes is a
recognised member of the OMT. It is a privileged partner for
a range of national agencies (ONT, INSEE…). It acts as a
veritable barometer of tourist trade on the French Riviera
through its role as a statistical information processing
system and a strategic monitoring tool.
Its mission is to construct a methodological framework to
measure the local tourist economy. It also produces KPI and
marketing data tables indispensable to an operational
approach to the different French Riviera markets.
Overall, CRT Côte d’Azur’s work is based on a partnership
logic and it provides a coherent synergy and networking
solution for the Alpes-Maritimes’ tourist areas and sectors.

THE FRENCH RIVIERA, FIRM FAVOURITE OF THE
INTERNATIONAL TOURIST SCENE…
THE FRENCH RIVIERA IS A RENOWNED “BUSINESS”
DESTINATION
“One day, in her search to become eternal,
beauty looked for a place to call home.
She discovered the French Riviera.
She took up residence & loved it so much.
That she has lived there ever since.”
Louis NUCERA, 1928-2000
Renowned as a land of exception, innovation and creativity,
the French Riviera thrives on its know-how and its
excellence for organising seminars, congresses, incentives
and large international events such as the Cannes
International Film Festival, Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix,
Antibes Juan-Les-Pins Jazz Festival, Nice Carnival...
The French Riviera is a cosmopolitan Mediterranean
destination situated in the heart of Europe. It enjoys a
climate blessed by the gods with over 300 days of sunshine
per year. Its unique natural environment, its intense light, the
mildness of its climate are key attributes of the stylish living
synonymous with the French Riviera.
The French Riviera has had its very own Convention Bureau
Riviera Côte d’Azur for the past few years. A true facilitator
and provider of tailored solutions, the Convention Bureau
provides advice, suggestions and assistance to all events
organisers.
Land of exception and emotion, the Côte d’Azur – French
Riviera & Monaco – owes a large part of its success to its
exceptional diversity and wealth. A unique identity forged by
the contrast between sea and mountain. Preserved natural
landscapes stretching from the Mediterranean coastline to
the Alpes du Sud. An extraordinary cultural heritage which
embraces a large part of the history of humanity. An
abundant crucible of creative activity for artists from all
over the world. A wealth of international festivals and large
events. Gastronomy gorged by sun, given a contemporary
twist by the greatest chefs. A wide range of leisure activities
and infrastructures which have seduced visitors from all
over the world for over one and a half centuries.

TOURISM
& DISABILITY
Over the past few years the Minister for Tourism has
earmarked the access of disabled people to holidays as a
national priority. Project manager of the “Tourism &
Handicap” Label in the Alpes-Maritimes department, the
Comité Régional du Tourisme Côte d’Azur’s objective is to
foster a wealth of accessibility initiatives.
The Tourisme & Handicap Label concept covers four main
types of handicap (visual, hearing, motor and mental). It is a
voluntary scheme and can be issued for one or more
handicaps.

http://twitter.com/Visit_Cotedazur
To perfect the label, CRT Riviera is working on the
Destination’s tourist accessibility by assisting communes to
implement disability-friendly tourist areas. The global
accessibility project informs handicapped visitors about all
labelled tourist sites corresponding to their handicap that
can be visited with a minimum of autonomy. It also
addresses the senior population due to the aging
demographic.
Aware of the need for an accessibility policy in their
territory, the department communes are in the initiative
phase. They have shown great dynamism, fostering synergy
between the local authorities and institutions, fostering the
accessibility of sites and services for all - tourists and
residents, as well as creating adapted tourist products.
CRT Riviera has brought out a new publication, the “Guide de
l’Accessibilité” (Accessibility Guide), for visitors with special
needs.
The new brochure features tourist sites that have been
awarded a national Tourisme & Handicap Label, as well as
accessible sites recommended by the Tourist Offices, stay
offers and disabled-friendly packages on the French Riviera.
A FEW STATISTICS – AUGUST 2010
86 Tourism & Handicap sites awarded the label or in the process of
being labelled in the Alpes –Maritimes Department:
• 45 accommodation sites.
• 17 Tourist Offices.
• 4 theatres & exhibition venues – congress centres.
• 13 visitor locations (museums, historic monuments, leisure parks,
botanical gardens, floral park).
• 2 restaurant.
• 5 leisure centres / beach sites.

2010 EVENT: “SEATRADE MÉDITERRANÉE 2010”
CRUISE TRADE SHOW
CANNES, NOVEMBER 30 TO DECEMBER 2
The French Riviera, leading Mediterranean cruise
destination
The only Mediterranean professional trade show
showcasing the cruising, at one event. Thanks to the
active involvement of the Côte d’Azur Cruise Club and its
Chairman, Mr Alain Gumiel, for the first time since its
creation in 1996 it will be taking place at the Palais des
Festivals in Cannes, France.
The Mediterranean is the second most popular
destination after the Caribbean.
The event involves 58 countries and hosts 160 exhibitors
and 4,000 industry visitors.
The trade show will feature high added value themed
conferences on key issues such as environmental norms,
technologies deployed, the evolution of cruising in the
Mediterranean and stop over and excursions policies of
the major companies (all of which we welcome).
Another highlight of the event is the travel agency
training programme (Top Cruise).
The French Riviera’s legitimacy in welcoming cruises is
enhanced by staging this leading dedicated trade show.

MER & DÉCOUVERTE 84 85
Mountain
Alpes d’Azur
HOW TO GET THERE / MOUNTAINS – WINTER / MOUNTAINS - SUMMER
Those that discover them will be surprised to find
mountains with peaks over 3,000m high, so close, so
accessible, in the heart of the Parc National du Mercantour,
in the same region as the Mediterranean forests, capes and
islands of the mythical French Riviera.
The Alps start at the Mediterranean, on one of the world’s
most illustrious coastlines, in a unique, light-flooded
landscape, where nature comes in an unrivalled pallet of
diversity, decors and atmosphere, made for pleasure and
adventures. These are the “Alpes-Maritimes”.
From Spring to Autumn, the entire Alpes d’Azur area is an
exceptional destination for mountain lovers. All activities
are available in its grandiose sites among the natural
features of its high and mid mountains.
In winter, from the shore, discover a view of the French
Riviera’s snow-covered balcony with 465 peaks over
2,000m in altitude and 6 rising to over 3,000m.
It only takes 90 minutes by car from Nice to reach the
furthest of the 15 Alpes d’Azur resorts. Auron, Isola 2000,
Valberg-Beuil are the largest resorts of the Massif des
Alpes du Sud. Snow, sun and wide open skies await.
BY TRAIN
The SNCF connects the large French and European cities to
the stations at Antibes, Cannes and Nice. From Nice, 2
railway lines service the Alpes-Maritimes haut-pays:
• Nice/Digne through the Vallée du Var (taking the
picturesque Chemins de Fer de Provence “Train des
Pignes”). Chemins de Fer de Provence (Provence railways):

LE PARC NATIONAL DU MERCANTOUR
(MERCANTOUR NATIONAL PARK)
Created in 1979, it is the most recent of the 9 French
national parks. This 68,500-hectare protected area
stretches over more than 120 kms from the Col de
Tende to Ubaye. It fulfils two essential missions:
protection of the natural environment, reception and
information for visitors in search of nature tourism.
An open air temple
Mont Bégo, 2,872 m high, covers 2 valleys which are
home to an archaeological treasure of over 30,000 rock
carvings known as the Vallée des Merveilles (Valley of
Wonders) and the Val de Fontanalbe. They were
classified as Historic Monuments in 1989.
Its grandiose landscape was carved out by quaternary
glaciers and is dotted with a myriad of lakes. Its Bronze
Age shepherds (1800-700 BC) signed their presence on
the rocks.
Site visits: roam free on authorised paths or with a
certified guide.

most popular departments for touring.
The CRT supports facilities or amenities set up by the
Conseil Général to promote this type of tourism currently
experiencing rapid growth.

transport and enrich the routes by offering a combined
transport offer (hiking, walking train or cycle train).
