Following an early departure we make our way to Folkestone for a midday Eurotunnel crossing to Calais. We continue through France to our overnight hotel.

A day at leisure in Diano Marina.
Today we visit the French Riviera. Our first visit is to Cannes, famous for its film festivals and its sweeping bay around the Mediterranean. From here we make our way along the coast to Nice where you have free time.
We travel along the Nervia Valley to the ancient medieval town of Dolceaqua (fresh water), famous for its spectacular mountain location as well as olive oil and wine production. In the afternoon we call at San Remo, known as the town of flowers.
The tiny principality of Monaco is our destination today. We spend time in Monte Carlo, home of the most thrilling race of the Grand Prix series and possibly the world’s famous Casino. We visit the Rock, the home of the royal family and one of the world’s best aquariums. Throughout the day we are accompanied by a local guide.
One final day of leisure in Diano Marina.
