You can get a taste of the Mediterranean coast’s allure by taking a half-day trip from Nice to the glamorous cities of Cannes and Antibes. Walk the beautiful Croisette Boulevard to the Film Festival Palace in Cannes, the city that hosts the world-famous film festival.
See the sights at Juan-les-Pins, Cap d’Antibes, and La Garoupe. Spend your downtime window-shopping in trendy Antibes or taking a stroll along the beach. Small groups of no more than eight people will receive undivided attention from the tour guide.
• Discover the sea-side resort of Cannes
• Stroll along the Croisette boulevard
• Admire the biggest yachts in the world
It’s time to go on a tour of Nice’s highlights, so gather with your guide at your hotel in Nice and load up into a plush minivan. Explore one of the South of France’s most glitzy resort towns, Cannes. Taking in some rays of the Mediterranean sun in this picturesque port city is a must.
Even if you don’t happen to be in town for the festival, a stroll down the legendary Croisette Boulevard will lead you to the Film Festival Palace, where you can see the handprints of countless film stars. Walk along the beach or through the charming streets lined with shops. Visit the sites where Napoleon landed in 1815 by continuing on to Juan-les-Pins and Golfe-Jean.
Meet up with the hip locals at the cafes and shops. Take in the scenery as you make your way to the town of Antibes from La Garoupe and keep an eye out for the mansions of A-listers on the beautiful Cap d’Antibes. Antibes has a beautiful Old Town that you can explore at your leisure.
Take a cultural break and wander the winding streets in search of unique shops, or visit the Picasso Museum (own expense, closed Mondays). Visit Billionaire’s Quay, located close to Fort Vauban, a 15th-century fortress, to gaze upon nearly priceless yachts docked offshore. After some free time in Antibes, you’ll return to the minivan and head to your Nice hotel.
Discover the seaside resort of Cannes, the city of the stars with splendid palaces, and “the Film Festival Palace” with the famous red carpet surrounded by celebrities’ handprints.
Stroll along the “Croisette” boulevard bordered by magnificent sandy beaches and dress-designer stores.
Then, join Antibes, Juan-les-pins, and Cap d’ Antibes, to enjoy a walk through the walled city, under the watchful eye of the “Fort Carre”.
Along the ramparts, overlooking the sea, admire the biggest yachts in the world.
