Testimonial Metropolis DMC
Many thanks for your follow up, Paola and team. The event did go ahead and all went well. You all worked very hard to fulfill some difficult requests from my client and I want to thank you again for your help. their help.
Will hopefully come back soon with future projects for Metropolis.
One of the top destinations in the world to travel to, we put France at your feet.
Not only can we offer you magical Paris, a city that seems to have been created for the best and most creative events (see also our Paris page), but the rest of our country is breathtaking too.
The Cote d'Azur, where towns exist with names like St Tropez, Nice and Cannes, makes a perfect backdrop for the most glamorous incentives. When you slowly wander up North, there are the lavender fields of the Provence, the famous Champagne route, the Loire Valley known for its majestic landscapes and ancient castles and romantic Normandy, where sheep graze quietly in orchards, and the countryside is dotted with old farm houses.
This is the France we offer you.

The French Riviera
Nineteenth-century poets and painters celebrated the romantic charms of the Provençal countryside. In 1834, an English Lord Chancellor set out to take his daughter who had tuberculosis to Italy, but was turned back at the border because of a cholera epidemic.
He chose to stop in a tiny fishing village called Cannes. His friends followed, and thus the French Riviera was born, as it came to be known by cosmopolitans, whose contemporary counterparts still spend part of every year there.
Monaco made its fortune by opening a casino when the railroad was built in the 1850s.
Nice, a long established city belonged to the house of Savoy until 1860, when a treaty ceded the town to France. In the last hundred years or so, southern light has drawn a wave of painters: Van Gogh, Gauguin, Renoir, later Matisse, Dufy, Picasso, Chagall and many others.
Thanks to its unique geographical location, set between sea and mountains, exploding with flowers all year round and blessed with an exceptional climate, the French Riviera is a delightful destination.
Whatever town you choose as a base, Cannes, Nice or Monte-Carlo, your guests will visit the other two for sure. They will love the legendary "croisette" and picturesque old villages like Eze, Villefranche or Saint-Paul-De-Vence the favorite havens of the French jet-set. They will love the Riviera because of the incredible beauty of the decor and because few places in the world offer such a variety of attractions.
