Every year, the elegant and cosmopolitan city of Nice attracts millions of visitors from across the world thanks to its grace, Provençal charm and Mediterranean climate. Whether you are looking for a cultural city break, a foodie escape or a beach holiday, Nice is the perfect destination.
We have handpicked the stunning 4* Hotel La Pérouse as your home during your two or three night break and after settling into your preferred room on the first day of the trip, you will have the afternoon and evening free to enjoy the outdoor pool and jacuzzi or admire the spectacular views across Angel Bay from the roof terrace.
On day two, meet your English-speaking specialist driver/guide at a central departure point close to the hotel for a full day wine tour as part of a small group (maximum six guests). During the course of the day, you will discover the heart of the Côte de Provence, a beautiful region renowned for producing the world’s finest rosé wines. You will discover that the appellation also produces excellent fresh whites and full-bodied reds. During the course of the day, you will visit three wineries for tours and tastings, learning about the history of the appellation, the grape varieties and the styles of wines. Lunch will be served as the guests of one of the estates. After returning to Nice, the evening will then be free to enjoy the city’s vibrant nightlife.
For those staying a third night, the next day includes an unforgettable foodie tour with a fascinating local guide. Taking you on foot from the seafront to the Old Town, you will have the opportunity to taste a mouth-watering array of local specialities and delicacies. Drink in the Côte d’Azur atmosphere like the artists and intellectuals who fell in love with the area over a chilled glass of rosé and indulge in the colours, flavours and scents of the city. You will taste 22 specialities today and the tour will conclude with a convivial Niçoise lunch in a historic, family-owned restaurant with artisanal gelato for dessert. The maximum group size is 12 and there will be time after lunch to wander along the famous Promenade des Anglais or sleep off your indulgences on the beach.
