Come to the Côte d’Azur to wander swanky beach towns and stately gardens on a group walking tour of this coveted coastline, beloved by the rich and famous

There’s no better way to experience the glamour and coastal splendour of the French Riviera than with your own two feet. Bypass the crowds with slow-paced group rambles along paths that frame sweeping views of the jewel-blue Mediterranean Sea, leading to ancient villages perched on rocky hilltops, royal summer palaces and opulent villas. Explore from Menton on the Italian border, a lesser-visited town known as the Pearl of France for its sun-soaked disposition and show-stopping location between the mountains and the sea. 

Travel by scenic train and bus to begin gentle daily walks with your group on the Cap Martin peninsula and over the dramatic Castillon mountain pass to Sainte-Agnès, Europe’s highest coastal village, blessed with superb alpine scenery. Stop for decadent picnics with panoramic sea views and to sip French wines accompanied by creamy cheeses on the terrace of sea-front eateries. Along the way, you’ll witness the famed glitz of the Côte d’Azur with a stop in Monaco to peruse its mega-yacht-studded harbour and casinos. 

The Côte d’Azur’s lavish gardens are a highlight of the region and a focal point of this trip. Enjoy leisurely walks among the Exotic Garden of Eze, set on a medieval fortress site high above the Mediterranean, and at the Belle-Epoque style Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, which features nine themed gardens, from rose and Japanese to stone and Florentine. In the Palais Carnolès, you’ll stroll among sculpture-dotted citrus groves classified as one of the Remarkable Gardens of France.
