Shore excursion options abound – perhaps a tour where you drive up Suquet Hill for a view of

the city, sea and Lerins Island - fabulous dahling! How many rich and famous can you spot, walk

International Film Festival calls this home.

Last day to pick your choice of optional tours where on the one hand, this city, founded by the

Romans some 2,100 years ago, is replete with (literally) wall-to-wall history and architectural

splendour. You can journey back in time and wander the mazes of alleyways and cobblestone
