Know More about this tour

When your ship arrives at the Villefranche port, meet your guide at the cruise terminal and head out on your full-day Provence and Côte d’Azure shore excursion.

Travel west by luxury 8-person minivan to the Provençal town of Grasse. Not only is Grasse the center of the French perfume industry, the town is also known as the perfume capital of the world! Savor the fragrances of jasmine, orange blossom and mimosa from the surrounding countryside as you walk through this picturesque little town. Then, take a tour of the Fragonard perfumery to learn about perfume manufacturing and the history of this exquisite perfume house.

Continue traveling for roughly 30 minutes to Valbonne, a medieval village that has retained much of its 16th-century character. Stroll through its picturesque alleyways, popping into quaint boutiques stocked with local arts and crafts, and have lunch at one of the cafés in the Old Town (own expense).

Follow with a scenic drive along the Loup River to the majestic village of Gourdon, perched high on a rocky ridge. Your guide will take you to a viewpoint for sweeping views of the Côte d’Azur coastline.

Then, it’s time to head toward the coast for your wine tasting in Nice, a dazzling resort city on the French Riviera. Wind your way up to Château de Crémat, a beautiful hilltop wine estate built on a site that dates back to the region’s Roman invasion. Sample wines from the nearby Bellet region — a wine appellation unknown to most visitors but loved by locals — during your wine-tasting session with an expert sommelier.

After wine tasting, relax on the short journey back to Villefranche.
