WALK THE FRENCH RIVIERA
8-day / 7-night centre-based, one-hotel group GUIDED walking tour at Menton on the Côte d’Azur
Being one of the first modern resort areas, the French Riviera, or Côte d’Azur, was once a playground and vacation spot for aristocrats such as Queen Victoria and King Edward VII, as well as a destination frequented by many artists and writers including Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. With an average of over 300 days of sunshine a year and stunning views over the Mediterranean Sea, it is a perfect walking location.
Traverse the hinterland visiting medieval hilltop villages and walk along their cobble-stoned streets, explore the coastal path of Cap Ferrat strolling under the umbrella pines and see the glorious rose-coloured Villa de Rothschild with its magnificent gardens, classified as one of the Notable Gardens of France. This walk along the stunning French Riviera is based at Menton. Founded by pirates, with many of the narrow streets still bearing their names, it is situated on the French-Italian border, on the edge of the bay between Monaco and the Italian Riviera, Menton is central to many outstanding walks. With sweeping promenades, grand hotels and the cobalt sea waters at your doorstep, lingering here is always a good idea.
