Know More about this tourYour guide will pick you up at your hotel in Nice either in the morning or in the afternoon. This private tour is an excellent blend of the glitz and glamour of the French Riviera and its perhaps more authentic and picturesque side, too. You will begin your tour heading towards the motorway (speedway) and shoot off from there to the the scintillating town of Cannes, cradle of today’s number one Film Festival in the world.
After a good half-hour ride, you will find yourselves on the sea front again where you’ll make your first halt on what is considered as the Champs Elysées of the Riviera, the Boulevard de La Croisette. Facing the Palace of Festivals and Congresses - where it all takes place in May - you might feel like walking up ‘the 24 steps of glory’ and perhaps strike your most graceful pose on the red carpet. Do have a look at the local Walk of Fame with its celebrities’ hand-prints before you go, too.
Once the high-end boutiques and splendid hotels of Cannes are left behind, you will take the coastal road to Antibes which traverses the summer resorts of Golfe-Juan and Juan-les-Pins, both steeped in history as well as ongoing events. You’ve now reached Antibes, or Antipolis as the Greeks had first named it. A town which played the role of sentinel for the country during many centuries, hence its ramparts circling the Old Town. There you might consider strolling along those 15th century walls and Grimaldi Castle - nowadays the Picasso museum.
Then your guide will drive you out of the Old Town. Once past Antibes’ large marina and its ‘Billionaires’ Quay‘, you will proceed along the coastline until you reach the town of Villeneuve-Loubet with its extraordinary ‘Marina of the Bay of Angels’ from where you will go inland towards your last site visit.
Last but not least, Saint-Paul-de-Vence will enchant you. When walking through the mesmerizing maze of cobbled streets with their numerous listed monuments, it becomes clear how this medieval village appealed to a vast number of artists with the likes of Matisse, Modigliani, Chagall or Picasso instilling a definite artistic touch that one can now ascertain when gazing at the windows of the countless art galleries. Taking you back to another time - notably due to its aura of light at certain hours - it is no wonder why famous actors too have chosen the quaint village of Saint-Paul-de-Vence as their ideal retreat when coming to stay on the Riviera.
At the end, your guide will drive you back to Nice.
