Football

The main football stadium in the French Riviera is the Allianz Riviera Stadium in Nice.
This is where Nice top club OGC Nice, currently playing in France's top tier, plays their home matches. The UEFA EUro 2016 championship was hosted in France, with four matches played in Nice.
The results were somewhat disappointing for France, but congratulations to Portugal!


Formula 1 Racing

The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the most challenging of the F1 races organised around the world. Extremely popular, so if you fancy experiencing this race live, early booking is mandatory!

Athletics

Some of the major events being organised on the Cote d'Azur are:
- Nice Iron Man Triathlon

For some unknown reason I still have not yet taken up golf... must get round to doing that one day!
There's plenty of golf courses around: Golf Courses on the French Riviera.


Cycling

France is a country that loves cycling. That is to say, this love consists mostly of watching other people race their bikes.
There are however also large numbers of people who regularly cycle themselves, and the French Riviera offers some beautiful albeit challenging tracks.
A word of caution: there are very few dedicated cycling lanes, and you will have to contend for space with other traffic. But once you leave the busy coastal area, traffic will be much less dense, allowing you more space to enjoy your ride.
Check out this site for some excellent suggestions: where to ride in the French Riviera.
