France & Italy

There's so much to do on the French Riviera, we were happy to create a seven-night program based in the lovely, lively, waterfront city of Nice, France.  Our central 4* hotel (with rooftop pool and jacuzzis), is a perfect base for us to explore the French Cote D'Azur (blue coast), head over the border into Italy, and have a free day in the middle to explore as you choose.

Our Tour from Nice

Nice, a fantastic city of beaches, museums, public art, fountains, cafes, great shopping and restaurants, the famous Cours Saleya flower market, the colorful winding cobblestone streets of its Old Town, and a waterfront promenade that goes on for miles.  Did I mention the excellent gelato?

With Viaggio Tours, you'll be in the same wonderful hotel all week.  So unpack once, make yourself at home, and we'll travel from there to all the spots listed below.

Menton, France

This lovely citrus-colored city, with a more chill vibe that its more famous neighbors, comes as a wonderful surprise to our guests.  We love its shady squares, beautiful town for strolling and shopping and a wonderful old town.  Oh, and limoncello tasting.  We do.  You must.
