Mediterranean gems

In the heart of San Remo is the medieval pedestrian centre of La Pigna. Its tight huddle of streets, remains of old historic churches and quaint squares are perfect for getting lost in and discovering this little jewel of Italy. An optional excursion to the memorable French Riviera takes us to opulent Nice, with its quaint old town and famous Promenade des Anglais.

Mesmerising Monaco

A hop across the border takes us to Monaco, the small sovereign city-state with a world-renowned jet-set reputation. This tax haven has to be seen to be believed; count the sports cars whizzing past the Casino in the principal residential and resort area of Monte Carlo or the number of private helicopters hovering above crammed marinas. We include a visit to the old city, located on the Rock of Monaco, home to the royal palace - just don't forget your passport!

Quaint San Remo

The Italian Riviera stretches from Ventimiglia on the French-Italian border, through the arc of the Gulf of Genoa to the port of Lerici beyond La Spezia in Liguria. Known as the 'City of Flowers', the resort town of San Remo basks in a glamorous past as well as tossing up a picturesque harbour, Mediterranean climate and fantastic coastline. Once a flourishing resort for high society in the 19th-century, discover more on our guided city tour. Our base on the Riviera dei Fiori on the west coast of Italy is where we can mingle with locals and other holidaymakers for a fun, Italian style break.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.

Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €15.00. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate Ͽo add on.
