Day 1: Arrive at the Riviera of Flowers

Participate in one of the carnival celebrations in the world!

In the evening behold the Parade of Lights as the floats are illuminated in captivating colored lights and are wheeled around the main square. After the music and shows have ended, enjoy some time for dinner on your own before being brought back to the hotel.

Day 3 (Sunday): Menton's Lemon Festival and Procession
Transfer by coach to the first city on the Côte d’Azur, just beyond the Italian border, to be dazzled by the "Fête du Citron." The unique event celebrates citrus – using its naturally bright colors to create artwork enlivening the mild winter days. The fruit sculptures crafted from over 145 tons of oranges, lemons and grapefruit in the Biovès Gardens are enchanting during the day and in the evening when it is transformed into the “Gardens of Light.” Enjoy the parade of sun-inspired floats!
