Play and Explore on the Italian and French Rivieras

Join us on this Play and Explore bridge holiday on the Italian Riviera. You can expect a warm welcome at the Hotel Palace from owners Elisabeth and Loris and their attentive staff.  With just 48 rooms this classic hotel is really something special. Diano Marina is a great base from which to explore this fascinating region, full of quaint coastal towns, colourful gardens and beautiful flowers. Walkers can enjoy a coastal walk to neighbouring Imperia, capital of the province – don’t miss its Olive Museum. The medieval village of Cervo with its winding cobbled streets, colourful houses and famous music school is also worthy of a visit, as well as the hilltop Diano Castello. **Included tours** Our full day tour of Liguria takes us to Dolceacqua, one of the prettiest villages of Liguria. Spend time in this historic centre and be enchanted by the Doria Castle and Roman Bridge before our local wine tasting. We stop off in San Remo on return. Our full day tour to the French Riviera starts at the Prince’s Palace in the Principality of Monaco & Monte Carlo. Then, leaving the Casino and the Café de Paris behind we take the famous panoramic coastal road, the Grande Corniche, to the hilltop medieval village of Eze, where we visit its perfume factory.
