About the City

French Riviera

At the crossroads of Provence, Italy, and the Alps lies the French Riviera, locally known as the Côte d’Azur. Over the centuries, artists, authors, musicians, and royalty, from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Elton John, Queen Victoria to the Jolie-Pitts, have made this scenic Mediterranean destination their (vacation) home. Today, students from around the world join high-profile residents in the French Riviera, making it an ideal place to gain cross-cultural communication experience while honing French language skills. Immerse in French language and culture in Antibes at our partner university, the Centre International d'Antibes, or take science, engineering, and business courses in English at SKEMA Business School, located in Sophia Antipolis (a.k.a. Europe’s Silicon Valley). Whichever program you choose, internship, service learning, and volunteer opportunities are available to enrich your experience in this beautiful, vibrant destination.

About the Country

France

France has long drawn intellectuals, artists, authors, and revolutionaries, serving as a muse that sparks creative thought and action across the centuries. The country’s colorful history lives on in its iconic architecture, prestigious universities, and rich culture. In a country the size of Texas, you’ll find hundreds of renowned galleries and museums to explore, natural beauty ranging from 1,240 miles of beaches to fragrant lavender fields, five major mountain ranges to world-famous culinary traditions. Here, you can hone your French language proficiency, gain skills in an international internship, and earn credit toward your degree…students of all majors and all language levels will find the right program in France.

Local Highlights

Great Outdoors

Enjoy the great outdoors when you study in the French Riviera, because swimming, kayaking, hiking and skiing are all within easy reach! For hiking, hop on a train to Le Trayas, where you’ll find direct access to the Esterel Mountains and hundreds of miles of hiking trails. For winter sports, catch an inexpensive bus to the skiing slopes in Auron or Isola 2000.


Marché Provençal

Stay healthy and make local produce the center of your meals when shopping at Antibes’ Marché Provençale fruit and vegetable market. Open six days a week, you’ll find fresh organic produce from Provençale farmers, as well as local specialties like pissaladière, onion pie garnished with anchovies and olives, and ratatouille, pan-fried vegetables in tomato sauce.


Cannes, Nice, and Monaco

Tap into the Riviera's electricity when you study in the region that hosts star-spectacled events like the Cannes Film Festival, Nice Carnival, and Monaco Grand Prix. There’s always something exciting going on in Antibes, but with Cannes, Nice, and Monaco only a short train ride away, you’ll find it hard to decide exactly which fabulous thing you should do today.


Le Dramont Beach

The beach of Le Dramont was the site of an amphibious landing by 20,000 U.S. 36th Texas Infantry Division troops in 1944, part of the Mediterranean D-Day assault. Here, you’ll find a U.S. landing craft on a square dedicated to Dwight D. Eisenhower. You’ll also see the Ile d’Or, a tiny island with a mock medieval tower; Tintin fans will recognize it the inspiration for Hergé’s The Black Island.


Ste. Marguerite Island

Board a ferry for the 20-minute ride to Ste. Marguerite Island, where you’ll be greeted by the fragrance of eucalyptus and pine. Make your way to Fort Royal, the former residence of “the Man in the Iron Mask” and now the Museum of the Sea. After exploring all the cultural attractions, you can snorkel in the crystalline sea before cracking open a picnic on one of the island’s many secluded beaches…a.k.a. the perfect day.
