Itinerary

Description

One of Europe’s most glamorous holiday destinations, the beautiful coastline that stretches west along France’s Côte d’Azur and over the border into Italy is the perfect backdrop for an elegant and relaxing getaway. A millionaire’s playground with glittering marinas, coiffured cliff-top villas and exclusive resorts, we spend time in scenic Diano Marina, pretty Imperia and have time to experience the glitz and glamour of Monte Carlo, famous for its historic casino. It’s sure to be a break to remember!

Coach Itinerary

Ferry to Calais and overnight stay in France on a bed and breakfast basis.

Day 2

Continue to our hotel in Diano Marina.

Day 3 – Imperia

We spend half a day in the pretty town of Imperia, renowned for its cultivation of olives and flowers. Shady trees and ancient buildings line the cobbled streets while the Old Town has many interesting shops that sell antiques, handicrafts and locally-made artefacts.

On our optional excursion, we join a boat trip from Santa Margherita Ligure, a lovely port town with a castle and 13th-century basilica, to Italy’s most sophisticated resort, Portofino. Famed for its picturesque harbour crammed with expensive yachts and lined with pastel-coloured houses, it also boasts a medieval castle perched on a hill above the town.  

Day 5 Day at leisure

We head to the tiny principality of Monaco, home to a historic casino, the well-known residential area of Monte Carlo and many rich and famous residents. Monaco is less than a square mile in size but brims with glitz and glamour! There’s much to explore including a bustling marina, beautiful royal palace and fantastic shops.
