A Day in Saint-Tropez
Duration: 8 1/2 hours
Tour Code: CEO-003
This full-day adventure highlights the exciting cosmopolitan lifestyle of the jet-set that is typified in Saint-Tropez.
From Cannes, you will board your coach and take the Highway in direction of St Maxime. During the 1.5 hrs ride you will be able to already appreciate the verdant landscapes while your guide starts introducing you the area of the “Var”. Arrived to Sainte Maxime, you will leave your coach behind and embark the so called “bateaux verts” (green boats) for a transfer to the opposite side of the bay to Saint-Tropez. Upon landing in Saint-Tropez, your guide will accompany you on an exclusive walking tour around the port and the narrow streets of the city.
Your walk takes you uphill to a vantage point that allows you to view the city from above its rooftops, looking out over the unique bay and encircling the azure blue Mediterranean Sea. Following your guided walk, you will have plenty of free time for shopping and lunch on your own. Art lovers may also want to pay a visit to the Museum Annonciade where you can find works by Seurat, Matisse, Signac and Flaminck on display.
After taking your time to discover Saint-Tropez on your own, you will re-join your guide at the pier and take the boat transfer back to Sainte Maxime where your coach awaits. Sit back and relax as you travel back towards Cannes, enjoying the passing scenery of the stunning coastal road that is called The Golden Corniche. Thought by many to be one of the most beautiful sections of the French Riviera, the road runs between the sea and the Esterel. Composed of volcanic rock, the Esterel lies between Saint Raphael and La Napoule and is an inspiration to artists and travelers.
In St Raphael you will have a short stop to stretch your legs or maybe enjoy a quick coffee.
