Your holiday begins in London, as you meet your Tour Manager and group at London St Pancras. You take the Eurostar to Paris, where you join the TGV service direct to the Côte d'Azur city of Nice, your base for the next five nights.
Nice is one of France's most popular and cosmopolitan holiday destinations, with famous shingle beaches, a pleasant Mediterranean climate all year round and a naturally beautiful location on the spectacular French Riviera. The city is also famous for its vibrant carnival, which takes place each year during the two weeks leading up to Mardi Gras - a final chance to indulge in merriment before lent.
On arrival, your evening is at leisure for you to explore or relax. Your hotel is a short distance from the famous Promenade des Anglais, and you may want to stroll along the glitzy seafront before stopping for dinner at a local restaurant.
