SUGGESTED SIGHTSEEING

FULL DAY

CANNES

Today, the International Film Festival attracts thousands of professionals and tourists from all over the world. Cannes is quite a small town, but it is a town of many faces. Indeed, the centre itself presents three very different landscapes the prestigious seaside promenade, La Croisette, the lively town centre overflowing with boutiques, and the picturesque old port and Suquet hill which make up the old town.
After a visit of these districts, have lunch nearby at the Palais des Festivals with its famous red carpet, for an unforgettable photo and then on to enjoy sun and sea or a mini cruise to the very close Lerins Islands.

A DAY IN PROVENCE

The Greeks planted the first vines in Provence in 600 BC and produced the first wines in a country to be known later as France. These wines were rosé's. From the past to the present day, via the Romans then the 17th-18th centuries, you will be given a summary of this very interesting part of French history at LA MAISON DES VINS COTES DE PROVENCE (House of Wines). During a one hour session, you will learn with a professional how to taste a wine and recognise a vintage.

The trip will then take you to the medieval village of LES ARCS, where your guide will tell of the history which dates back to 1010, the oldest part of which still contains numerous vestiges of the Middle Ages. Lunch will be taken at the LOGIS DU GUETTEUR, a delightful place tucked under the deep shade of the castle keep, from which it got its name. Renovated in a charming way, the original character has been preserved. After lunch, the trip will go on deeper into Provencal nature to the ABBAYE DU THORONET; a jewel of ciscercian architecture, where you will enjoy the quietness and magnificence of the area.

HALF DAY

ST PAUL DE VENCE

The medieval village of Saint Paul de Vence, founded by the Celto-Ligurian tribes, was fortified in the 16th century and thus allies the pleasures of history in beautiful surroundings. It is a cultural an artistic revival, where painters came to seek inspiration (Picasso, Léger, Chagall, Miro, Dufy...). Numerous art galleries and gift shops are still witness to this, and the famous MAEGHT FOUNDATION, the highlight of modern art gatherings, can be offered as an optional visit.

NICE, VILLEFRANCHE & CAP FERRAT

Every morning (except on Mondays), the old Nice Flower and Provencal Market offers thousands of scents and colours. Strolling around in this atmosphere will enhance your interest in the history of this city and the guides will help you to discover with passion and show you the most interesting sights.

This tour will then resume to CAP FERRAT, where, amongst fabulous villas, stands the ROTSCHILD FOUNDATION. Here, Béatrice de ROTHSCHILD-EPHRUSSI's imagination producted the Villa Ile-de-France, which resembles an Italian Palace in Paradise gardens. It also houses an outstanding collection of Sevres and Meissen porcelain.

Lunch will then take place in the bay of the lovely fishermen's village: VILLEFRANCHE.
