Overview

Sun-drenched beaches, chic resorts, timeless hilltop villages, a rich historic heritage and superb Mediterranean food – it’s easy to see why the Côte d’Azur casts such a powerful spell. In the 19th century this enchanting corner of France became a retreat for European royalty, aristocracy and artists attracted by its warm climate and the quality of its light. Renoir lived in Cagnes-sur-Mer, Matisse in Nice and Picasso in Antibes. Today in France only Paris has more museums and art galleries than this part of the French Riviera. 

In its sophisticated resorts ‘being seen’ is part of life, and you’ll follow in famous footsteps on the Promenade des Anglais. This famed walkway on Nice’s seafront, lined with palm trees and fin-de-siècle, Art Deco and Italianate buildings, is the promenade after which all the world’s others are named. 

The cuisine, especially the seafood, is as legendary as the sunshine, but there’s also an abundance of unforgettable experiences here, from regal palaces to opulent Monaco, the millionaires’ playground whose streets host the legendary Formula 1 race, to eclectic art collections at the Villa Ephrussi. Then there are ancient towns like Antibes and Saint-Paul de Vence mixing with bastide villages, exotic gardens, world-leading perfumeries, yacht-filled marinas and chic shops selling everything from local crafts to luxury brands. 
Our tour allows you to enjoy selected highlights of the area, with plenty of free time to explore. Whether you’re passionate about art, food, perfumes or gardens – or you simply want to enjoy the good life – you’ll soon discover why the Côte d’Azur has become one of the world’s foremost holiday destinations.
