100% recommend Michael was a great tour guide with lots of interesting info. I’m really glad I did this tour, I was planning on going by public transport but I managed to fit so much more in and some of the places like Monte Carlo only needed about 1/2 an hour.

Tour solo de traslados El tour consiste solo en traslados, sin guía turístico. Por el precio a mi gusto le faltó un guía que fuese explicando y guiando la visita.

Romantisch - Côtes d‘Azur Die Côtes d‘Azur hat enorm viel zu bieten, auch im Winter. Wer Lust auf modernes Shopping hat, Cap3000 in Nizza, kleines herziges Städtchen mit grossem Hafen Antibes (Altstadt und Museum), St. Tropez & Cannes sind zum schlendern wunderbar, und man isst die feinste Trüffelpizza im Caffe Roma in Cannes oder in Nizza schlendert man an der Corniche, wer Kunst gerne hat, der besucht das Künstlerdorf Saint Paul de Vence. Es gibt für jeden Geschmack etwas, auch die Kinder kommen nicht zu kurz, das Marineland zum Beispiel kann man besuchen und auch grad dort übernachten, sind tolle Zimmer und wunderbares Restaurant. Wer einen Abstecher ins nahe gelegene Monaco machen will ist an der richtigen Adresse. Die Gegend ist wunderschön, für jedes Budget gibt es Unterkünfte, erreichbar mit dem Zug, Flugzeug (Nizza) oder mit dem Auto/ Motorrad. Essen, Trinken und einfach geniessen.
