Itinerary idea in detail

Private customized tour. Ask us about booking your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Upon arrival into Nice, you collect your bags and are driven to your hotel on the Mediterranean Sea. After settling in, your private guide will meet you at the hotel and bring you on a walking tour of Nice, introducing you to its long history and some of the town’s best viewpoints.

  • Have a relaxing morning and afternoon at your leisure before you meet your skipper this evening for a private cruise along the French Riviera. You will sail past famous Mediterranean towns such as Èze, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Villefranche-sur-Mer and Monaco. You can take a dip in the turquoise waters or simply watch the lights of the Riviera from the boat while sipping on a glass of champagne.

  • Today your private driver-guide meets you at your hotel for a full day exploring Monaco, Monte Carlo and the hilltop town of Èze. Enjoy a tour of the Monte Carlo casino, walking the cobbled streets and driving Formula One Grand Prix roads before discovering the pedestrianized medieval town of Èze and its Jardin Éxotique.

  • This morning, you’re driven to the Nice Train Station for your scenic four-hour train journey to Santa Margherita Ligure (premier class). Upon arrival to Santa Margherita Ligure, meet your private driver who will transfer you to your hotel on the Ligurian waterfront. Enjoy the rest of your day at leisure to explore the city. We recommend starting in the heart of the city, where you can discover the local gelaterias, boutique shops and local pastel-hued façades.

  • Today, spend the day exploring the tiny coastal villages that make up the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Cinque Terre, with your private guide. Departing from Santa Margherita Ligure, travel south with the local train to board the ferry before taking in the picturesque scenery of the Ligurian coast by water.

  • Heading north along the Ligurian coastline today, leave Santa Margherita Ligure marina behind. Pass the village of Paraggi and the more imposing coastal town of Portofino, where you can choose to disembark to explore. For swimming and snorkeling, stop at the San Fruttoso cove which is only accessible by boat. Renowned for its brightly painted houses, the town of Camogli will be your last stop before heading back by private boat to Santa Margherita Ligure.

  • Today you will be transferred by private driver to the Genoa airport for your flight home.
