Enjoy a half-day trip to Italy from Monaco and soak in the vibrant atmosphere of the unique markets of the Italian Riviera. After complimentary pickup from your Monaco hotel, head southeast along the Mediterranean coast and leave the French Riviera (Côte dAzur) behind as you cross the border into the land of 'Pizza, Pasta and Amore.'
Once you arrive, experience the hustle and bustle of the charming Italian markets. Depending on the day, you may visit the city of San Remo (Tuesday and Saturday) or explore the typical open-air market at the seafront city of Ventimiglia (Friday only). Enjoy free time to discover the colorful market stalls offering a variety of Italian products, including cheese, fresh produce, authentic leather goods and clothes.
After a tour of San Remo (Tuesday and Saturday) or Ventimiglia, (Friday only), your half-day trip continues back to the French border. Pass the beautiful town of Menton, known as 'the Pearl of France' and famous for its annual Lemon Festival (Fête du Citron). On your way back to Monaco, sit back and relax on a scenic drive along the Mediterranean coast and enjoy magnificent views of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin and Monaco.
