Riviera Villages: Guided Tours


Want to get off the beaten track on the French Riviera without renting a car? Local tourist offices have put together a great deal that gives you guided tours of the Riviera’s most beautiful villages for only €2 a day! Beginning today and running through August 26, the Navette du Patrimoine will take you from Menton to Sospel, Moulinet, St Agnes, La Turbie, Castillon, Gorbio, Castellar, Roquebrune and Castillon. The bus leaves from the Menton bus station at 9.30am Monday to Friday and returns at 4pm. The itinerary changes each day with one or two villages visited on each itinerary. A local guide accompanies you, explaining the history, culture and architectural highlights at each stop. You’ll have time to wander the village and have lunch before returning to Menton. Not only are these mountain villages spectacular but you will be taking some of the Riviera’s most scenic routes. Did I mention that it only costs €2 (excluding entry fees for certain monuments)? It’s an unbeatable bargain. Click here for the schedule and to reserve on line.
