Your hotel in Nice
Your driver and guide will pick you up from your hotel in Nice in an air-conditioned minivan in this Provence Sightseeing tour.
Enjoy a charmed trip through the Provence countryside, where wild mountain country is interspersed with undulating valleys and neatly ordered cherry orchards.
Your first stop will be Tourettes sur Loup, a gorgeous medieval town known as the “city of violets” for the flowers that ornament its hills.
Drive through the stunning scenery of the Gorges sur Loup, with 700-meter cliffs towering above you en route to Gourdon.
Gourdon sits atop a rocky hillside, and affords magnificent panoramas of the valleys that billow out from beneath it. Spend an hour eating lunch (payable direct) and taste the Riviera specialty flower sweets in a traditional Florian confectionery.
Take a guided perfumery tour in the town of Grasse, world capital of the perfume industry and producer of two-thirds of France’s natural aromas.
Continue onward for Saint-Paul de Vence, a 9th century village whose Renaissance-era ramparts are a reminder of the invasions and repulsions that have given it its modern shape.
At the end of tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Nice.
Please call the activity operator at least 24 hours prior to start of the tour to confirm departure details.
A great day had. Driver very helpful and able to make it a great experience. We had been to Grasse so able to agree to alternative stop and variations....Ronald T Whitelaw, Australia, 27/Sep/2011
The tour also included the towns of Tourettes-sur-Loup (Violet town) as well as the high village of Gourdon. This was a really good tour to get a taste of the Provence villages...Fiona Quinn, United Kingdom, 18/May/2012
