Day 2: Nice

An Evening of Rosé Tasting Paired with Nice Street Food

The crisp rosés of southern France, in all shades of pink, have conquered even the most skeptical wine lovers. This tour will be conducted by a sommelier and cookbook author to discover the rosés of Provence and the French Riviera and learn to identify your preferred style. She will introduce you to the art of tasting wine and tell you the story of rosé and the region, illustrating her points by uncorking bottles from her favorite producers. You will also be provided with a list of rosés available outside France so that you can continue to build your knowledge at home.

Because rosé wine is an integral part of “la merenda,” Nice’s street food tradition, a selection of foods will be served during this tasting. You will also learn how to pair rosé with foods from the Mediterranean and other parts of the world.

Wine is a casual affair in the south of France, and this tasting will also provide an opportunity to meet fellow travelers and enjoy an apéritif in a beautiful studio in the heart of Nice’s Old Town before you head to dinner.

At the harbor of Nice, you’ll board the ferry for a 45-minute scenic cruise to the sovereign Principality of Monaco.

Upon arrival, you’ll be welcomed by a grand and unforgettable panorama. Clinging on a rock dominating the sea, this independent state, completely enclosed by French territory, is a mixture of ancient and ultra-modern architecture.

Explore Monaco independently and at your own pace. You have the whole day to discover the Principality, its museums, its monuments, its walks and, above all, its magic. During the day, you will be able to visit as you wish.

Visit the Casino of Monte Carlo, its gardens, and the nearby Hotel de Paris. At any time of the day or the night, visitors rush around this mythical and glamorous place in the principality. Explore its fabulous architecture and its impressive rooms, where people are playing or watching. You may take a seat at the Café de Paris’ terrace and enjoy an ice cream while contemplating the view around you: the casino’s gardens, the fountains, and the palm trees.

Walkthrough the old city, by the Cathedral and the Prince’s Palace. Try to be present for the spectacular change of the guard at 11:55 am. Then visit Port Hercule, with its luxury yachts and “James Bond” atmosphere, the Grand Prix circuit, and the Oceanographic Museum.
