Nice, situated on the Cote D’Azure on the Mediterranean Sea is the second most visited destination in France after Paris. This is mainly due to its attractive location and climate.

However there is more to Nice than its natural beauty. During your stay here, you will have a tour of the highlights which include La Promenade des Anglais, its famous seafront, the Russian Cathedral with its onion-shaped dome built in 1912, Cimiez Hill, an historic neighbourhood built on the site of an ancient Roman settlement, the Louise Nucera Library with its 200,000 items, the Matisse Museum, the Museum of Modern Art and a photo stop at the panoramic viewpoint, Mont Boron. There will also be a stop at the famed Florian chocolate factory often visited by Matisse as far back as the 19th Century.

Another day takes you to Monaco. En route, you will visit Villefranche/Cap Ferrat known for its beautiful bay and 16th Century citadel. Continue through Beaulieu eventually arriving in Monaco. The capital Monte Carlo is an ideal place to simply stroll around and explore traversing its narrow streets. Highlights will be the magnificent harbour and the renowned Monte Carlo Casino. On your return to Nice, you will stop at the Fragonard perfume factory and the attractive medieval stone village of Eze.
