On this trip, you’ll get up close to some of Nice’s modern and Medieval landmarks. You’ll kick things off with a 75-minute journey to the city. You’ll take the scenic route to the old quarter, passing by the well-preened orchards of the 15th-century Cimiez Monastery and the pink-dome-topped Negresco Hotel on the way. When you arrive, you’ll swap the coach for an electric trolley train, which will chug through the winding cobbled streets. Keep your camera handy, because you’ll tick off a few of the city’s main attractions during the ride, including the 350-year-old Nice Cathedral and the yacht-filled Port of Nice – the biggest of its kind on the French Riviera. After a 45-minute tour, you’ll then head out on foot. You’ll stroll down a stretch of the Promenade des Anglais – the city’s seven-kilometre-long, beachfront walkway – and wander around an open-air market. The latter’s a good place to pick up a bottle of bellet wine – a type of red that’s produced in the nearby countryside. Afterwards, you’ll hop back on the coach for the return journey to the port.
