Tour Itinerary

Bask in the playground of socialites, celebrities and aristocrats when you explore the sun-kissed French Riviera, from elegant Nice to picture-perfect Antibes, with a side trip to Italy in between.

Day 1 - Arrive Nice (7 Nights)
Stretch your legs on sun-kissed Mediterranean shores, strolling in the footsteps of generations of English aristocrats who once chose Nice to be their holiday retreat. On arrival, you'll be transferred to your hotel and will have the day to embark on your own exploration of Nice, before joining your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception.
Accommodation: Beau Rivage
Meals: Welcome Reception

Day 2 - Nice Sightseeing and Free Time
Delve into the Italian heritage of Nice's elegant Old Town when you join a 'Local Specialist' for a sightseeing tour that will take you to the heart of the city, Place Massena. You'll see the Promenade des Anglais along which the who's who of Europe once relished beautiful seaside views. Then, see the Bay of Angels, apparently named for the mythical angels who are said to have shown Adam and Eve a new home as lush and beautiful as the Eden they could no longer enter. Your afternoon is free to explore the city your way. Resist the urge to hit the beach and consider an Optional Experience to the medieval hilltop town of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, a favourite haunt of the rich and famous.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 - Italian Excursion
Begin your day in the hilltop village of Dolceaqua with its 11th-century castle. Tread in the footsteps of Claude Monet, walking across the picturesque bridge depicted in several of his paintings. Continue with a visit to an Italian agriturismo in Rocchetta Nervina. 'Dive Into Culture' and savour the flavours of taggiasche olives grown on-site during an olive oil tasting and lunch, featuring some of the owner's favourite local dishes using only products grown on their land.
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 4 - Nice at Leisure or Optional St. Tropez and Cannes Experience
After a few days of sightseeing you may be tempted to spend your full free day sprawled on a sun-lounger with a cocktail but, if you can pull yourself away from the pool, consider a full-day Optional Experience to St. Tropez and Cannes. You'll embark on a drive along the scenic coast to Sainte-Maxime and board a boat to St. Tropez where you'll have some free time for lunch and your own exploration. Returning to Nice, you'll stop in Cannes, and view the Palais des Festivals, home of the annual film festival. Tonight, enjoy a free evening strolling through the elegant streets of Nice in search of a rich Ratatouille, for which the town is justifiably famous.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - Côte d’Azur and Monaco Excursion
Follow the scenic Moyenne Corniche, bound for the Principality of Monaco. You'll 'Dive Into Culture' and stop at Fragonard Parfumerie, which has been crafting delicate French scents since the 1920s. A stop in medieval Èze delivers panoramic views of the sparkling Côte d'Azur, before you continue to La Turbie for a remarkable photo opportunity of Monaco. See the remnants of Roman rule before following the winding road down to the coast to the glamour of Monaco. Here you'll visit the Roman-Byzantine Monaco Cathedral and the Prince's Palace, a 12th-century Genoese fortress and the official residence of the ruling Grimaldi Prince of Monaco. Experience lifestyles of the rich and famous at a dinner in Monaco-Ville before we embark on a scenic drive to Monte Carlo, to see the Grand Casino and parts of the Monaco Grand Prix race track.
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 6 - Excursion to Antibes – Markets and Mega-Yachts
Follow the Mediterranean coastline south to Antibes, once the haunt of Pablo Picasso. Join your Travel Director for an orientation tour before pounding the pavements on your own. Stroll alongside honey-hued façades and into bustling market squares where you'll have an opportunity to pick from the dizzying array of artisanal fresh produce for lunch on your own. The flavours of cheese, sundried tomato and artichokes lingering on your palate, you'll want to soak up more of this medieval gem, heading down to the harbour to admire the many private yachts moored there.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 7 - Nice at Leisure
Get your final fix of Nice on this full free day to explore the city on your own. Explore the legacy of great artists like Matisse and Chagall, spend the morning sunbathing or consider an Optional Experience to Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, an elegant seaside villa surrounded by beautiful gardens. Return to Nice in time for an afternoon at leisure. This evening, you'll join your new friends for a rousing Farewell Dinner as you toast to good times, good friends and some French joie de vivre.
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 8 - Depart Nice
Say a fond farewell to your travel companions at the end of our time on the Riviera. Transfers are available. Conditions apply.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Trafalgar is just the most wonderful travel operator - they staff are so kind and generous with their time, they truly make very effort to make you feel as if you are the most important person and your good time is their primary objective - they surprise you throughout the trip with little unexpected treats and stay always close on hand to monitor activities to make sure everyone is smiling and happy - I would not travel with any other service

The value derived from the trip far outweighs the price paid. The hotel accommodations, the food, the optional experience, the hidden gem, the transportation were more than satisfactory. The operator is professional, friendly, safety conscious and enthusiastic.

Trafalgar tours is an excellent company. The tours and people are great and they handle everything. You can never see so much or learn so much on your own.

The trip was much more than we expected! It was very well organized, travel director Brendon was very good, knowledgeable, helpful and everything was explained in detailed to us in every step of all the places we're going! He's awesome as well as our driver Tyson who took care of us iin all our needs! There are no dull moments in the motor coach, we had so much fun!!! Definitely will come back and will recommend Trafalgar! Thanks

This trip was phenomenal and I would definitely recommend it. Trafalgar did an excellent job from start to finish. Tyson, our travel guide, was wonderful. He went above and beyond to make sure our trip was very memorable. The accommodations were very nice, the extra meals were excellent and the itinerary was perfect. We saw some beautiful places. Do not hesitate to take this trip. You will not regret it. We will definitely be booking trips with Trafalgar in the future.

Trafalgar did an excellent job on this tour with a very organized and personable tour director.

This was my second trip with Trafalgar and it was just as amazing as the first. The tour director, Stephen, did a fantastic job of creating an atmosphere of comradarie and fun.

Trip was more strenuous than we had expected. Our tour director, Lutezia was outstanding. She went above and beyond to insure that everyone had a memorable experience,

Booking with affordable tours was as simple and easy as it gets. I was able to get all of my questions answered promptly and got all correct information about our vacation before travel.

This is our second trip with Trafalgar and we are indeed pleased with the wonderful and memorable experiences they have given us . They do plan their itinerary in a very thoughtful and comprehensive way so as to offer the travelers a meaningful and unique experience which they may not be able to do on their own.

Very satisfied with Trafalgar tours and their tour director and bus driver!

Everything went so smoothly & went above our expectations! All of the services booked through affordable tours were on time & professional! Trafalgar planned every detail & their excursions were well worth every penny! We're definitely interested in traveling with Trafgar again!

We had a wonderful tour. Saw a lot, learned a lot, Met a lot of nice people and had a great Tour Director and driver.

It was a great trip carried out by Trafalgar and planned and managed by our two Affordable Tours agents. We'll be happy to you contact Affordable Tours for our next trip in 2020 or 2021.

Trafalgar was great. So many details were taken care of so that I didn't have to think about them. Our tour guide was great and the entire experience was great I would definitely consider another Trafalgar tour.
