Diano Marina, The French & Italian Rivieras
- Duration: 12 days
- Board Basis: Half Board
- Tour Ref: D2TGLE8933
- Travel Type: Luxury Coach
12 Day Select Holiday
This classy tour combines the inimitable style of the Italian Riviera and the sophistication of the French Riviera. Diano Marina is an enchanting commune in the Italian region of Liguria and features pine clad hills and olive groves reaching down to the sparkling coast. It has a palmlined promenade flanked by bars and cafes and is one of the premier resorts of the Italian Riviera of Flowers. Perhaps head to the harbour for a boat trip or just relax on the sweep of sandy beach. Away from the waterfront you’ll find a jumble of pastel painted Art Nouveau houses while the ancient heart of the town still preserves parts of its medieval walls and gates as well as grand architecture dating from the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque periods. We venture out to see how the “other half” live with excursions to Monaco and Monte Carlo. This wonderful getaway also includes the glittering city of Nice, elegant Alassio and we visit gorgeous Menton on the French Riviera.
