Your small-group Provence day trip starts with pickup from your Nice hotel and a drive along the French Riviera coastline to Cannes.
See the old port, famous La Croisette Boulevard, the Cannes Film Festival Palace, glamorous designer shops and wide, sandy beaches. You will be driven in comfort in a minivan limited to just eight passengers, ensuring you receive personalized attention from your English-speaking guide on this small-group tour.
Your day trip continues with a drive through the picture-postcard countryside to Grasse, the world capital of the perfume industry where you will have a guided tour of a perfumery. You will also have some free time here to explore independently or visit the old town.
Enjoy the stunning views of the Alps, valleys and Mediterranean coastline as you drive up to the perched medieval village of Gourdon. You will have time for lunch (own expense) before moving on to the charming Loup Gorges. Sample the traditional floral-scented candy at the Florian confectionery, a French Riviera specialty.
Next, have a photo stop in Tourettes/Loup before visiting the second-most visited village in France, Saint Paul de Vence. With cobblestone lanes and chic art galleries, its easy to see why the town is so popular. You will have some time to explore this former haunt of the Impressionist painters before heading back to Nice where your tour ends.
