Select Menton Lemon Festival & Nice Carnival Flower Parade
10 Day Select Holiday
This extraordinary twin centre adventure takes in two distinctive and quirky annual events – Menton’s fruity lemon festival and Nice’s vibrant flower show. The sleepy village of Menton bursts into life when its Fete du Citron is in full swing with its citrus scented parade of fruity floats featuring sculptures made from oranges and lemons! Nice’s extravaganza features flamboyant floats snaking through the winding, ancient streets. This must-do holiday is based in enchanting Diano Marina, one of the premier resorts of the Italian Riviera of Flowers. Away from the sparkling waterfront, the ancient heart of the town preserves parts of its medieval walls alongside grand architecture.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
