On this full day tour departing from Cannes, come and discover the amazing landscapes, villages and towns of the French Riviera hinterland.

We will come and pick you up at your hotel in Cannes. You will be welcomed by your English speaking guide and he/she will go over the program and itinerary of the day with you. Then, board your comfortable, premium A/C vehicle and begin with a walk in Cannes.

Drive through the charming countryside of Provence to Grasse, world capital of the perfume industry, for a guided tour of a perfumery or free time to visit the old town.

View the Alps, valleys and spectacular coastline from the amazing perched medieval village of Gourdon that has some of the most astonishing panoramic views. After lunch winding down charming Loup Gorges, and taste the French Riviera's speciality flower sweets at the traditional Florian Confectionary.

Photo stop by a Provencal jewel: Tourrettes-sur-Loup. End the tour in the second most visited village in France: St Paul de Vence with ancient cobblestone lanes, fortified walls and art galleries, home of impressionist painters. Return to Nice.

Walk on the famous Croisette in Cannes

Arrive in Cannes and walk the famous Croisette Boulevard, by the Film Festival Palace, designer shops and smart sandy beaches. Embellished by Palm trees and fine sandy beaches, famous cafés, elegant shops and deluxe hotels have made Cannes one of the most famous cities of the French Riviera. Of course, the film festival is of world reputation so you will have the opportunity to see where it all takes place towards the Conference center. For the most, your time here will be spent discovering the town and enjoying great shopping possibilities.

Visit the Capital of Perfumes, Grasse

Then, your small group day trip will head to world famous town of Grasse, coined the capital of Perfumes. Situated on a slope in a natural amphitheater in the lower Alps, Grasse is a world leader in the production of natural fragrances for the perfume industry and of flavourings for food manufacturers. The perfume industry, although largely controlled by multinational groups, dominates the local economy.

Roses, jasmine, and other flowers, as well as bitter orange blossom, from which the perfumes are distilled, are cultivated in the close vicinity of the town. Here, participate in a guided visit of a perfume factory to discover all the secrets behind perfume making.

Visit the medieval village of Gourdon

Then reach the village of Gourdon that sits on the edge of a Rocky Spur above the River Loup. The village is dotted with tiny shops but is also home to one of the most famous Candy making Factory named Florian. After some time in the village, we will drive along the Loup River through the countryside to discover some places that are a heaven of quietness.

Admire the Loup Canyon landscape

Our next stop will be in Tourettes sur Loup. Tourettes is one of those picturesque villages that is so unique to France, again set on a rocky hill separating two valleys. As you wander and stroll through the narrow streets of the “village of violets”, you might stop by in one of those tiny fashioned shops that sell unique local arts & crafts that make this part of the hinterland so prized by visitors from all over.

End the day in Saint Paul de Vence village

In the afternoon, stop in medieval Saint Paul de Vence, sheltered behind its ramparts and filled with art galleries, boutiques and sidewalk cafes. The village of St-Paul dates back to the 11th century and traces of its history still remain much to the delight of its visitors.

It is a village well known for its artistic heritage, the beautiful landscapes surrounding St-Paul having inspired many artists and an enclave of art galleries and museums can be found around the quaint cobbled streets.

After the visit, it will be time to make our way back to Cannes and that will be the end of our services. This tour is also available as a day trip from Nice as well as a private tour option.
