Three Countries? Yes!
There's so much to do on the French Riviera, and we've created a six-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), the world famous Principality of Monaco with a day trip to Monte Carlo, plus, a fun little adventure just over the border to the Italian coast.
Nice's waterfront promenade
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, a 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.
A shady little square in Menton
This lovely citrus-colored city, with a more chill vibe that its more famous neighbors, comes as a wonderful surprise to our guests. Some of the best sandy beaches and waterfront dining, a beautiful main town for strolling and shopping below, and a wonderful old town above. Oh - and limoncello tasting. You must!
A fun ferry ride from Cannes, we'll visit this tranquil little island. No cars, just vineyards, flat walking trails, picturesque little alcoves for a swim, and a working Monastery that makes their own wine.
Famous for the Cannes Film Festival and its red carpet, the wide sprawling promenade and beach of the Croisette, and of course, its celebrities, shopping, cafes, glitz and glamour; Cannes is an energizing spot for us to spend a bit of time before hopping on the island ferry.
Villefranche sur Mer
We'll explore this charming French fishing village lined with pastel colored buildings, and enjoy wandering its lovely narrow streets filled with restaurants and cafes and one of the best beaches around.
Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild
There will be time for an optional visit to this magnificent villa with nine distinct gardens and a musical fountain. A truly magical spot with spectacular panoramic views of Cap Ferrat and the coast.
Every Friday, Ventimiglia boasts a huge market of meats & cheeses, produce, leather, clothing, and tons more. Even the French cross the border with their shopping carts for this event!
