After being picked up from your central Nice hotel in time for a 9am departure, settle into your air-conditioned private vehicle and soak up the scenery as you drive east across the Italian border.
Stop in Dolceacqua, a riverside village set against a stunning backdrop of the Nervia Valley, and follow your guide on a walking tour of the medieval Old Town. Visit Castle Doria, a medieval fortress located at the foot of Mt. Buffalo, then enjoy free time to explore independently or shop for souvenirs.
Next, head to the coastal town of Sanremo, the glamorous capital of the Italian Riviera, where you’ll have time to explore the marina, browse the shops, and enjoy lunch (own expense) at one of the seafront restaurants. Before you leave, be sure to photograph the magnificent bay, flanked by the dramatic headlands of Capo Nero (Black Cape) and Capo Verde (Green Cape).
Continue along the stunning Italian Riviera coast and cross back into France to visit the hilltop village of La Turbie, from where the views span Monaco, Monte Carlo, and the glittering Mediterranean.
After an unforgettable day exploring the French and Italian Rivieras, return to Nice, where your tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel around 5pm.
