Discover why pretty Provence has inspired generations of artists and visitors. Your tour of the picturesque region begins with midmorning pickup at your Cannes hotel in an 8-passenger minivan.
Your guide will share local insight as you drive along scenic inland and coastal roads with fantastic views of rolling hills and the Mediterranean landscape. Stop in the much-visited village of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, and spend an hour exploring the cobblestone laneways and charming squares that once inspired France’s Impressionist painters.
Drive through the spectacular valley of Loup Gorges, stopping for photos along the way at the villages of Tourettes and Loup. Make a sweet stop at the Florian confectionary for a taste of floral-flavored candy. Admire views that stretch all the way to the alps and the Mediterranean Sea from the hilltop town of Gourdon, where you’ll have an hour to enjoy lunch at a local café (own expense).
Continue on to Grasse, known as perfume’s international capital. Take a guided tour of a perfumery and explore the historic town during 45 minutes of free time.
Finally, return to Cannes to see the coastal city’s highlights. Stroll along the iconic Croisette Boulevard for views of luxury hotels and sandy beaches, and see the most glamorous spot in town — the venue where the world’s film stars gather each year for the Cannes Film Festival. The tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel in the evening.
