Itinerary

7-Day Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Local departure by coach or Door-to-Door service, then to northern France for an overnight stay.

  • Day 2

    Continue to Diano Marina for a four-night stay on an all-inclusive basis.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 3 - Nice & Èze

    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 façades and ornate balconies, and the flourishing Promenade des Anglais, which with its grand hotels and exclusive boutiques, provides a delightful place to relax.

    Meals - Breakfast, Packed Lunch, Dinner

  • Day 4 - St. Paul de Vence & Cannes

    Today’s included excursion takes us first to St. Paul de Vence, a beautiful, fortified medieval village with cobbled streets. Next, we visit Cannes, home of the famous film festival. Take a stroll along the tree-lined Boulevard de la Croisette with grand hotels, designer boutiques and gardens on one side and glorious beaches on the other.

    Meals - Breakfast, Packed Lunch, Dinner

  • Day 5 - Free Time or Monaco & Monte Carlo

    Join our optional excursion 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. Nicknamed “The Rock” this tiny capital is built against the mountains, and sprawls down to the glittering shores of the Riviera. 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! Take a stroll around the famous Formula 1 circuit; browse the sumptuous boutiques and marvel at the fabulous parks and gardens of this tiny paradise. 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.
