    • Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner
    St Paul de Vence

    St Paul de Vence

    Today we cross the border into France and visit St. Paul de Vence on our included excursion. This beautiful fortified medieval village has been, and still is today, home to some very famous painters. Wander around the cobblestone streets, admire the paintings, craft shops and boutiques, and soak up the atmosphere of a village that dates back to the 1500’s.

    We end the day in Cannes, famed for the International Film Festival, which takes place each May. Its most famous thoroughfare, Boulevard de la Croisette, is lined with hotels, boutiques and gardens on one side and fine coastal beaches on the other.

    • Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Nice

    Nice

    Today we cross the border to the French Riviera on our optional excursion to Eze and Nice. Our first stop is the medieval village of Eze perched high above the Mediterranean and offering spectacular views of the surrounding scenery. With its narrow streets filled with quaint craft shops and art galleries, Eze is the perfect place to spend the morning.

    This afternoon we continue to the fashionable resort of Nice, the largest resort on the Mediterranean coast and the fifth largest city in France. You will have the afternoon free to explore all the city has to offer, including the old town, with its pastel façades and ornate balconies, and the flourishing Promenade des Anglais, which with its grand hotels and exclusive boutiques, provides a delightful place to relax. After free time we return to our hotel in time for our evening meal.

    • Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

    A lesiurely morning in resort, followed by a superb gala lunch at our hotel.

    • Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Monaco

    Monaco

    Why not join our optional excursion to the Principality of Monaco, whose eight square miles form the smallest and almost certainly wealthiest sovereign-state, with possibly more millionaires than anywhere else on earth. Nicknamed “The Rock” this tiny capital is built against the mountains, and sprawls down to the glittering shores of the Riviera. There is a fascination with Monaco's ruling Grimaldi family, especially since Prince Rainier III’s marriage to the former film star Grace Kelly. One of the few autocratic Monarchies left in the world, the relationship between Monaco and France is an interesting one. Any new law passed in France is automatically sent to the ruler of the principality. If he likes it, it becomes a law in Monaco. If not, it doesn't!

    Spend time in probably the most famous region of Monaco; Monte Carlo. Take a stroll around the famous Formula 1 circuit; browse the sumptuous boutiques and marvel at the fabulous parks and gardens of this tiny paradise.
