    Nice

    Nice

    Today we cross the border to the French Riviera on our included excursion to Èze and Nice. Our first stop is the medieval village of Èze and the famous Fragonard Perfume Factory where we take a guided tour and discover some of the secrets to perfume making. After the tour we have free time to explore Èze. Perched high above the Mediterranean, the village offers a spectacular view of the surrounding scenery, and offering narrow streets filled with quaint craft shops and art galleries, Èze 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 facades and ornate balconies and the flourishing Promenade des Anglais, which with its grand hotels and exclusive boutiques provides a delightful place to relax.

    Portofino

    Portofino

    Today we travel to the beautiful palm fringed resort of Santa Margherita Ligure on our optional excursion. Life in the town is centred around the charming waterfront, and with a pleasant string of marinas, docks and pebbly beaches this is a lovely place to spend the day. You will have time at leisure to browse amongst the shops, visit the beautiful Basilica di Santa Margherita, just off the seafront on Piazza Caprera, or take a coffee break in one of the many cafés along the promenade and watch the world go by. Weather permitting; we take a boat trip from Santa Margherita to the exclusive harbour of Portofino. Once a struggling artists' refuge, the town has become one of Italy's most fashionable resorts. A popular mooring place for the yachts of the wealthy and lined with designer stores and elegant restaurants, Portofino has become one of Italy's most fashionable resorts. *Please note that if the weather prevents the boat trip from operating then we will visit the seaside resort of Alassio before returning to the hotel.

    • Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    St. Paul De Vence

    St. Paul De Vence

    We cross the border back into France on our included excursion to visit St. Paul de Vence. 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
    Monaco

    Monaco

    Today our included excursion takes us 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. 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. Rub shoulders with the rich and famous, or if you feel lucky take your chances in the famous Grand Casino where the lavish interiors are still decorated in the Belle Époque style.
