What’s included


Day 1 - London to Nice

Your journey begins at London St Pancras, where you'll board the Eurostar to Paris before transferring to the 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 - Nice

On the second day of your trip, you could 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 Châteaux and be rewarded with a spectacular panorama of the city.

Later, cool off at Fenocchio's ice-cream parlour where you'll discover over a hundred unique flavours. Perhaps take a leisurely stroll along the seafront on the famous Promenade des Anglais.

Day 3 - Monaco

Take a day trip to Monaco, taking in everything that this ritzy Mediterranean principality has to offer.

Indulge in some pure escapism as you explore this famously dazzling city. Take in Casino Square and the famous Monte Carlo Casino and Opera House, featured in several James Bond movies, or perhaps spend some time relaxing on Larvotto Beach.

For a more relaxing day, you could explore the beautiful floral displays at the Jardin Exotique or visit the Jardins Saint-Martin for dainty water features and stunning views over the azure coastline.

Day 4 - Nice to London

Depart from Nice on the high-speed TGV back to Paris Gare de Lyon, changing to Paris Gare du Nord to catch your Eurostar back to London St Pancras.
