The Riviera Times
If you have ever spent time in the international circles in the Riviera, chances are that you have already come across The Riviera Times. Founded in 2002 as the Anglophone sister publication to the widely popular German-language Riviera Côte d’Azur Zeitung, The Riviera Times quickly rose to be the leading source of local news for the international population in the area between the French Côte d’Azur and the Italian Riviera around Genoa, including Monaco. The monthly publication with a total circulation of 25,000 is distributed in many key spots frequented by expats, such as international schools, banks, consulates, hotels, and flights of some of Europe’s leading airlines.
As you might have inferred from the publication’s strategy of distribution, The Riviera Times, while targeted to the entire English-speaking community in the Riviera, tends to have a focus on an upper-class, high net-worth readership and their interests. Apart from offering high-quality coverage of all relevant local news by an experienced staff of journalists, the real estate, business, entertainment, and gourmet sections are some of the more popular categories of the newspaper. The real estate section and the classifieds should be among any prospective homeowner’s preferred reads.
In addition to the high-class monthly print edition, The Riviera Times boasts daily updates on its comprehensive website, a weekly newsletter with all the latest updates from around the area, and an e-paper edition for the modern-minded, technically inclined expat. If getting your daily updates online is your preferred method of staying informed about the latest happenings in the Riviera, you should definitely sign up for a free account on the website – you will not only get access to content available only to registered users, but will also have to opportunity to comment on articles, place classified ads for online and print publication, and much more.
As with many publications, it pays to become a subscriber of The Riviera Times: not only will you have the latest edition delivered to your home, but can also opt for the VIP Subscription model that comes with many other perks, such as free tickets to all events sponsored by The Riviera Times (such as fairs, cultural events, the Monaco Yacht Show, and many more), to name just one.
If you are looking for high-quality local news from the Riviera presented with a definite touch of class, The Riviera times might just be the right paper for you!
