The Nice Carnival is one of the largest in the world, with decorated floats, fancy dress and many musicians and dancers. Enjoy a fantastic view of this colourful procession during a break to the glamorous French Riviera.
Depart St Pancras International on the Eurostar after meeting your group at our dedicated St Pancras Departure Office. Travel to Paris then join the TGV service to Nice for six nights at the Hotel Boréal.
Take a guided walking tour of Nice this morning to see the attractive city's key sights. Following the tour, your afternoon is free to continue exploring at your own pace. Nice is a joy to discover, characterised by pretty pastel coloured buildings and terracotta roofs.
Today you are free to enjoy the city and take in the festival atmosphere. Tonight, you experience this evening's carnival extravaganza, the Parade of Lights, from your reserved grandstand seats. Admire the innovative floats and talented performers as they wend their way through the illuminated streets.
Today travel by rail to Menton for its famous annual Lemon Festival. The journey to Menton provides incredible views over the towns, sweeping bays and beautiful villas, then take your reserved space in the stands for the spectacular procession.
On Day 5 you are free to explore the town and surrounding area a little further. Nice, with its web of intricately linked streets in the Old Town, colourful flower market and seafront promenade is the epitome of Côte d'Azur elegance, and a delight to stroll around.
Enjoy a trip by coach along the magnificent coastline to the principality of Monaco for a guided walking tour. Later, continue to the glamorous Monte Carlo and the charming village of Èze ahead of dinner at a local restaurant back in Nice.
Say goodbye to France as you travel by rail to Paris, to join the Eurostar to London.
