Recently, on Facebook, we asked for your favorite summer vacation spots. A fan who goes by the name Man on the Lam offered his: the French Riviera. The area, which stretches roughly from the Italian border in the east to Saint Tropez in the west, offers classic views of the Mediterranean, bougainvillea-draped villages, and lavish, belle-époque estates. Pictured here is the town of Villefranche-sur-Mer, where the harbor's bright colors shine against the water.
