What You Can Expect
Once you arrive, experience the hustle and bustle of the charming Italian markets.

Enjoy free time to discover the colorful market stalls offering a variety of Italian products, including cheese, fresh produce, authentic leather goods and clothes.
After a tour of San Remo (Tuesday and Saturday) or Ventimiglia, (Friday only), your half-day trip continues back to the French border. Pass the beautiful town of Menton, known as 'the Pearl of France' and famous for its annual Lemon Festival (Fête du Citron). On your way back to Monaco, sit back and relax on a scenic drive along the Mediterranean coast and enjoy magnificent views of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin and Monaco.
I didn't realise the markets weren't food markets so I decided to leave. As I was the only one on the tour my guide suggested another plan and took me to Eze instead. It was only a two hour tour so he dropped me in the village told me where to go and where to have lunch so it ended up a very enjoyable day.
I enjoyed the markets but I don't like fake goods, I like food markets better.
The tour is superb and excellent value for money.Tour guide was excellent and informal,he made sure he kept you informed with all points of interest.Would strongly recommend that you split your trip between San Remo and the beautiful town of Menton.We have made our views very brief as we could rave about it for a lot longer.

Tour was awesome! Great time. Some road accident made our guide a little late, but is was beyond her control and she made up for it in great conversation and niceness. No complaints here. Would recommend this to everyone!
The Italian Markets are too much like Markets in all major World Cities now. Very good for the locals to buy their weekly groceries - not so appealing for overseas visitors who want to see real local goods.
A more realistic experience would be a collection of local small village markets with only local products - so the money stays in that town.
San Remo was smashing and well worth a visit. Our driver/guide was OK. He was on time, but he didn't really share any knowledge or add anything to the trip (other than driving us there). I would still recommend the trip though.
If it is a car and driver that you want, then this is the tour for you....if you are looking for information about the area and where to shop, then you need to be prepared to ask lots of questions. Our driver was reliable but offered little additional to the experience.
