400,000 years ago…that’s when the first settlers arrived in Nice. Sure, they were just learning how to use fire. But they knew a good thing when they saw it—beautiful beaches, a picturesque sea, and a wonderful climate. Since that time, Nice has added wonderful museums, enjoyable cafés and restaurants, fabulous shopping, and a lot more. Now’s your turn to visit Nice—and Aix-en-Provence—and Monograms makes it easy! On this 5-day vacation to Aix-en-Provence and Nice, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily buffet breakfast, guided sightseeing, transportation between the two cities via high-speed TGV train, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Plus, you’ll have the one-of-a-kind services of a Monograms Local Host®, a local expert who has insider knowledge and will give you recommendations for shopping, restaurants, and optional excursions.</BR></BR>Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Aix-en-Provence. We can pick you up at the airport and seamlessly whisk you to your hotel, where your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and a destination guide to familiarize you with the city. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for morning guided sightseeing. We’ll take you inside the Cathedral of the Holy Saviour, known for its interesting combination of architectural styles, and we’ll walk along the 17th- century Cours Mirabeau boulevard, a lively area without fountains, elegant homes, and famous cafés. Your guided sightseeing with a local expert in Nice features the Promenade des Anglais, Nice’s most famous boulevard, a walk through the Old Town, and an inside visit to the Palais Rusca.</BR></BR>In both cities, you’ll have free time to explore on your own. You may choose to visit one of the many museums in both cities, browse through the food and flower markets, or relax on the beach or at a local café. Perhaps take an excursion from Nice to Monaco or Saint Tropez, or take an excursion to walk in the footsteps of artist Paul Cézanne, who was inspired by the beauty in Aix-en-Provence. Your Local Host will be on hand to help you with suggestions and optional activities.</BR></BR>At Monograms, our goal is to make travel easier for you. That’s why we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, sightseeing, baggage handling, and transportation—not to mention a “friend in the city” to help you feel at home. With all of that, it’s a vacation of a lifetime!
