Cannes & Saint – Honorat Island

Let’s uncover Cannes with a guided walking tour. Renowned throughout the world for being the playground of the rich and famous, our local guide will show us the designer bars and couture boutiques visited by the who’s who of society throughout history. We will also explore the alleyways and hidden corners of the Le Suquet old quarter as well as discovering the seaside Boulevard de Croisette.
Boat Trip to Ile de Saint-Honorat
This afternoon we will take a boat trip into the middle of the Bay of Cannes to the monastic island of Saint- Honorat. Occupied only by monks since the 5th century, the Ile de Saint-Honorat is the perfect place to experience some peace and tranquillity. Visit the monk's home of Lérins Abbey or else wander the island’s trails and admire the glittering blue water of the Cote d’Azur, before returning to your hotel on the return ferry.

Today, you will have a full day to relax and enjoy the charms of the Côte d'Azur at your own pace. Take in some sightseeing and shopping in Cannes or visit some of the towns and villages in the surrounding region. Your guide can offer suggestions for activities and places to see. If staying in Cannes for the day, why not visit the local food market in the heart of the city where you can taste the local delicacies.
Explore Cannes at Your Own Pace
Spend another day enjoying the delights of Cannes and the French Riviera. Relax with a coffee by the seaside or take a stroll along the Croisette, which is the setting for the Cannes Film Festival. You can enjoy also an al fresco lunch in Le Suquet, the Old Town of Cannes, which overlooks the bay or visit the top of the hill that has some fantastic views over the entire city that are not to be missed! The choice is yours!
Saint Tropez & wine tasting
Full Day Guided Excursion to Saint- Tropez
Today, we will discover more of the Cote d’Azur with a full day guided excursion to Saint- Tropez and the local countryside. Our first stop is Saint- Tropez, one of the most recognisable names on the French Riviera, this sleepy fishing town was made famous by Brigitte Bardot in the 1950s. Visit the old port where millionaires’ yachts lie side by side with fishing boat, explore the cobbled streets of the old quarter of La Ponche or watch the locals play boules in the shade of the trees.
Our next stop will be a chance to taste some local wines. The French Mediterranean coast with its sunny climate is ideal for growing grapes with a visit to a local winery being one of the highlights of any holiday to the Cote d’Azur. Here we will taste some lovely local wines before returning to our hotel in Cannes.
Free Time in Cannes
Have another day at leisure to experience the French ‘joie de vivre’, another chance to relax by the beach, do some souvenir shopping or perhaps visit another of the local towns with the well-connected train service that runs all along the coast.
Relax in Cannes
Spend your last day in Cannes shopping for last minute souvenirs or enjoying a coffee or a glass of wine. Why not try one of the many cafés and restaurants, which surround the Boulevard de la Croisette. You can also take a walk down the picturesque seafront and experience the fabulous views outside the world-famous Carlton Hotel. A final evening of indulgence will be the perfect way to say “au revoir” to the Côte d'Azur.
After a lovely week, filled with great memories, your guide will bring you back to Nice airport for your flight back home. Time to start planning your next holiday!
