By morning Eurostar from London to Paris, where we transfer stations and board the TGV to St Raphael where we check into the Hotel Continental, situated a short distance away from the railway station. Our evening meal featuring fresh local produce is taken in the relaxing ambience of a restaurant beside the hotel.



This morning is free to explore St Raphael before we take a local train to the nearby resort of Antibes with its historic old town and dazzling marina, filled with yachts of the rich and famous. You may wish to visit the ancient castle Chateau Grimaldi - home of the Picasso Museum.



After breakfast we take to the water for a full day in St Tropez. The town is the playground of the rich and famous who, like you, are here to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the wonderful surroundings. The marina is well worth visiting for the spectacle, and you never know who you may bump into!



We transfer to Puget Théniers, where we join the Train des Pignes steam excursion to Annot. After some free time in this charming medieval village, we return by steam to Puget and transfer back to our hotel.



Today is a free day to spend in St Raphael; you may wish to enjoy the relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere of St Raphael and nearby Frejus with its Roman remains.



We take the stunning coastal rail journey to the one and only Monte Carlo. Home to the Grimaldi family, the Principality came to international fame with the marriage of Prince Rainer to Grace Kelly. Some of the many places to visit include the Cathedral, Palais du Prince, the Casino and the marina.



Your last day on the Riviera is a day at leisure. Perhaps take the excellent train service to visit nearby Nice for its flower market or you may wish to take the local bus service to the hilltop villages of St Paul de Vence or Eze. We take our evening meal together for our final night in St Raphael.
