Cannes Shore Excursion

This Cannes shore trip visits a local Italian market where you can shop for food (think cheese & wine) or clothes (think leather goods). Next your driver-guide takes you to the charming Italian village of Dolceacqua where you have time for lunch and to explore this hidden gem.

After meeting your
driver-guide at the pier in Cannes, you drive on the scenic Upper Corniche, enjoying dramatic views as you head towards the Italian border. Your first stop today is either in Sanremo or Ventimiglia, depending on which town is hosting a local market. Sanremo's market days are Tuesday and Saturday and the largest market is in Ventimiglia on Friday. On these days you can shop for local fruits, vegetables, cheeses, meats but also Italian leather goods (shoes, hand bags, belts) and clothing, all at a fraction of the cost in stores.

Next you visit the charming medieval village of Dolceacqua which is also located in the Italian Riviera but very close to the border with France. This village is dominated by its 13th century castle. You stop for a visit to take in the local charm and have free time for lunch (meal not included).

At the end of this Cannes day trip you are brought back to the pier or your hotel.

Mobility - Folding wheelchair OK, some sites may be inaccessible (advance notice required)
