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.

Today, on our optional excursion we take a countryside tour into the lovely Nervia Valley and onto the charming village of Dolceacqua. Dominated by the ruined castle, this wine-producing village is built on either side of the churning River Nervia and connected by an arching 33 metre medieval stone bridge. The surrounding hills and terraced vineyards produce the grapes used to make the local Rossese wine or Vino di Dolceacqua. We continue to Menton, once a favourite winter resort of Queen Victoria. There will be free time for you to explore at your leisure.

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.

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.
