What You Can Expect

Italian Markets Shopping Tour from Nice

Stroll around the Italian market town of Ventimiglia on your tour from Nice

After complimentary pickup from your Nice hotel, relax in a comfortable minivan for the trip along the Mediterranean Sea from France into Italy. Upon arrival, you'll have a couple hours to browse for bargains and must-have items.

While the shopping in Nice is perfectly lovely, it's fun to hop across the border into neighboring Italy for a shopping spree in some of the colorful Italian markets of the Italian Riviera. These markets are known for their leather goods, fashionable clothing, luggage, household items, accessories and souvenirs.

After shopping, you'll stop for lunch by the beach in Ventimiglia (own expense). Giuseppe's is said to have the best pasta in the region.

On the way back from Italy into France, stop in charming Menton, called by some the 'pearl of France.' Take a brief stroll through the historic center before returning to the minivan for the drive along the spectacular High Corniche road. Stop once more for a photo opportunity of the view overlooking the principality of Monaco before returning to Nice and your hotel.

The minivan carries only eight passengers, meaning your small-group tour is limited in size, ensuring personalized attention from your English-speaking guide.

Wonderful trip, well worth it. Fantastic day out, the markets were great but the countryside was the best part. Rolf was our very knowledgeable guide and expert driver which is important on the coastal roads.
