Exploring the idyllic villages of the French Riviera is a popular day trip from Nice, and this small-group tour offers a more intimate experience. Visit the Fragonard perfumery in Grasse, take in the views from hilltop Gourdon, browse the art galleries of St-Paul-de-Vence, and follow in the footsteps of Hollywood’s greatest in glamorous Cannes.
A combination of all that is wonderful about the region, Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur, this tour is a smorgasbord of authentic Provence, medieval villages perched precariously on mountain tops and the high-life of the rich and famous along the seafront! After being picked up at your hotel in Nice, you will start the tour in Grasse, where you’ll discover the world of perfumes at Fragonard, before taking part of the Route Napoleon and then climbing to Gourdon, over 2,770 feet above sea level. St-Paul-de-Vence is your next port of call - that village so renowned for its art, where so many of the world’s most famous artists have spent their time. Still culturally important today, many up and coming artists flock to this Mecca of the arts. Your last stop of the day is Cannes… where the rich and famous play. Where the world’s most famous film festival is held. Be a star yourself - the red carpet is the ideal photo opportunity - before having a stroll either along the sandy beach or doing some window-shopping! At the end, your driver will take you back to your hotel in Nice.
