We start the day with a panoramic drive along the marvellous coastal road (direction Italy), some breath-taking photo stops and with a visit of the Medieval hill village of Eze-sur-mer or, if you prefer, of the colourful town of Menton.
We then pass the border and visit one of the many charming Italian villages. You will get a bit of the Italian flavour and you will learn about the differences and similarities of these two neighbouring countries.
After a typical lunch in a local restaurant, we will cross two borders and visit one of the smallest countries in the world: The Principality of Monaco.

     Italian Full Day Tour

This is the perfect way to discover the west-end of the Italian Riviera, from the beautiful scenery to the historical villages and classic Italian markets. You will enjoy great food and experience the authentic Italian culture. The choice of the markets and towns will depend on the day of visit. For example: Tuesdays and Saturdays we may visit the town of San Remo, whereas Fridays is the perfect day to visit Ventimiglia.
No matter which day you visit, there will be plenty of shops where you can buy souvenirs and other items at reasonable prices. Since the area is situated directly on the coast, you can’t miss the delicious seafood dishes at the many restaurants dotted along the port.
We will eventually travel to the charming town of Bordighera where you can enjoy the locally made gelato, Italian word for ice cream.
We will explore some medieval villages that still retain their 19th-century appeal like Bussana Vecchia, a former ghost town, and Dolceacqua. Both will give you a unique view of the true Italian life and a hint on the history and culture of the region.
