This Cannes shore trip visits some of the most exciting spots in the French Riviera. Your driver-guide takes you to Antibes (known for yachts and its Provencal market), St Paul de Vence (known for art boutiques) and Nice (known for its beach and flower market). A drive through central Cannes is also included.
After meeting your driver-guide at the pier in Cannes you start the journey towards Antibes by driving along the Croisette Boulevard, lined with 5 Stars hotels, designer boutiques and the Cannes Film Festival Palace which gives Cannes its renowned "Hollywood" atmosphere.
Your first stop is the very famous Cap d'Antibes, which is considered the most exclusive area of the Cote d'Azur. You'll see the private port of billionaires and walk past their massive luxurious yachts. You'll have a chance to stroll on 16th Century ramparts along the sea side and meander through the local covered Provencal market. The Chateau Grimaldi, which sits above the town, was used as a studio by painter, Picasso.
After visiting Antibes you continue along the coast to Nice. Once you are in Nice you drive down La Promenade des Anglais, the famous palm tree lined street that parallels the most famous beach in the Riviera. You enjoy some free time in the old town of Nice to walk through the beautiful flower market (closed Mondays when flea market takes place).
Your final stop is the Provencal hilltop town of Saint Paul de Vence. This medieval jewel has long been known for its artists and it is where many painters and actors live today. You can walk the town's medieval walls and through its narrow and crowded main street to enjoy the many art galleries and boutiques. If you are interested in modern art you can consider a stop at the Maeght Foundation Gallery or the Chapel of the Rosary.
