Villages and Countryside of Nice

Welcome to the French Rivera; a Mediterranean coastline located on the southeast corner of France.

Your guided journey will begin with a pick-up from the pier and from there, your driver and tour guide will take you through the beautiful villages where you will contemplate the incredible views of the countryside of Tourettes-Sur-Loup and Mougins. While there, take a stroll through the quaint little streets of the medieval French towns and take in the architectural beauty of the old facades, stone walkways, and stairs bordered with flowers.

From there, you will visit Grasse city, considered the world capital of perfumes. There you will enjoy a free guided tour of the perfume factory and the village center. After stimulating your olfactory senses, your driver will take you to the magnificent waterfall in Saut Du Loup. Take advantage of the breathtaking views and allow yourself 10-15 minutes to photograph this paradisiac place.

Continue your adventure by visiting Gourdon. This medieval village is perched at approximately 760 meters above sea level, where you will experience the most stunning views of the entire French Rivera. What's more, from that point, you can see Nice, Antibes, and Cannes, and on a bright, sunny day, you can see Corsica Island.

From there take a drive to the French Olive Mill Opio. There, learn about the various tools and techniques used for the manufacturing of oil from a professional guide and taste different varieties of olives, French oil, tapenade on toast, and toast with a drink.

As your tour comes to an end, your driver will drop you off at the port area for the return to your ship.
