Best things to in June 2024 in the French Riviera – The Agenda

Living on the Côte d'Azur: What to do in June?

June, the month that kicks off summer. It's an ideal month to visit the Côte d'Azur: it's not yet too hot, tourists haven't yet stormed its beaches and hiking trails, and there are plenty of events on offer! If you're lucky enough to live on the French Riviera, or come here on holiday, in June you'll be spoilt for choice: open-air concerts in iconic locations, dancing, horse-riding, sport. There really is something for everyone. And it's off!


Tanneron / Mandelieu-la-Napoule -June 2nd

Living on the Côte d’Azur offers disabled people at least one advantage: magnificent landscapes in which to enjoy their favourite sport. As part of the Handisport Adapté 06 programme, the Alpes-Maritimes département and the Comité handisport06 are organising the second edition of the Handi VTT 06 week.

The FTT is a “mountain bike” for people with disabilities. It can be used on downhill trails, but can also be used on flat or hilly terrain.

If you live on the Côte d’Azur, whether on your own, with your family or with friends, mountain biking gives you the feeling of freedom, while enjoying the natural surroundings of the Alpes Maritimes.

On 02 June 2024, an outing through the spectacular scenery of our region is planned. From Mandelieu-la-Napoule in the Alpes Maritimes to Tanneron in the Pays de Fayence. A sporting half-day in contact with nature between the Alpes Maritimes and the Var!
