“With scenery as lavish and picturesque as a Hollywood set, a mild curative climate and an abundance of facilities for rest and recreation, the Riviera has for centuries been the leading vacationland and playground area of the Continent.”

These flowery words are a welcome introduction to the soldier on leave in the Côte d’Azur region of southeastern France, and the following pages include useful information on local amenities, transportation, and locations of interest. A folding map of Cannes, the primary urban center, is included in the back.

Prepared by the Special and Information Services Division of the United States Riviera Recreation Area (USRRA) and printed in Nice by Imprimerie Speciale de L’Aurore.
