Suggested France Independent toursThe Côte d’Azur: Nice & MonacoFrom £315 Per person (based on 2 sharing)Nice

Join the sun-lovers and socialites to enjoy the high life and old-world charm of the French Riviera with this sensational tour that visits both Nice and Monaco.

Day 1 - London to Nice
Your journey begins in St Pancras Station, where you'll board the Eurostar train to Paris before transferring to the high speed TGV to Nice. On your first evening in Nice, perhaps take a leisurely stroll to explore your surroundings - a good place to start is the harbour. It's here you'll get your first real glimpse of Nice as 'the billionaire's playground' with the moored super-yachts dwarfing the local fishermen's boats. From here wind around the seafront and cross into the Old Town with its warren of medieval streets. The seafood here is sublime and not to be missed.

Day 2 - Exploring Nice
Today you may take a panoramic sightseeing excursion of Nice's major sites and monuments. Walk through the narrow streets and terracotta-clad buildings of the Old Town and onto its most colourful square, Cours Saleya. Admire the fragrant flower and fruit market before walking up to Colline du Chateau and be rewarded with a spectacular panorama of the city. Later, cool off at Fenocchio's ice-cream parlour where you'll discover over 100 weird and wonderful flavours.

Day 3 - Monaco
On your included rail excursion to the principality of Monaco you'll enjoy a day of pure escapism. Join the glitterati and see where James Bond loved to gamble at the Casino, or if you need respite from all the glitz and glamour, seek refuge in the gloriously perfumed rose gardens at Fontvieille.

Day 4 - Nice to London
Today you'll depart from Nice on the high-speed TGV back to Paris Gare de Lyon and then change to Paris Gare du Nord to connect with the Eurostar to St Pancras.
