You'll see the Promenade des Anglais along which the who's who of Europe once relished beautiful seaside views. See the Bay of Angels, apparently named for the mythical angels who are said to have shown Adam and Eve a new home as lush and beautiful as the Eden they could no longer enter. Your afternoon is free to explore the city your way. Resist the urge to hit the beach and consider an Optional Experience to the medieval hilltop town of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, a favourite haunt of the rich and famous.

Dive Into Culture and savour the flavours of taggiasche olives grown on-site during an olive oil tasting.
Day 4NiceNice Your Way: After a few days of sightseeing you may be tempted to spend your full free day sprawled on a sun-lounger with a cocktail but, if you can pull yourself away from the beach, consider a full-day Optional Experience to St. Tropez and Cannes. You'll embark on a drive along the scenic coast to Sainte-Maxime and board a boat to St. Tropez where you'll have some free time for lunch and your own exploration. Returning to Nice, you'll stop in Cannes, and view the Palais des Festivals, home of the annual film festival. Tonight, enjoy a free evening strolling through the elegant streets of Nice in search of a rich ratatouille, for which the town is justifiably famous.

You'll Dive Into Culture and stop at Fragonard Parfumerie, which has been crafting delicate French scents since the 1920s. A stop in medieval Eze delivers panoramic views of the sparkling Cote d'Azur, before you continue to La Turbie for a remarkable photo opportunity of Monaco. See the remnants of Roman rule before following the winding road down to the coast and the glamour of Monaco. Here you'll visit the Roman-Byzantine Monaco Cathedral, where Grace Kelly was married, and the Prince's Palace, a 12th-century Genoese fortress and the official residence of the ruling Grimaldi Prince of Monaco.
