Nice Carnival and Menton Lemon Festival

You'll love this tour if you like: 

  • A vibrant carnival atmosphere
  • Unique traditions - the Menton Lemon Festival is one of a kind 
  • Beautiful coastal scenery - the Cote d'Azur is spectacular
  • Modern Art - visit the Picasso Museum in Antibes

This lovely tour is based around two delightful annual events: the Nice Carnival and the Menton Lemon Festival. The earliest record of the Nice Carnival is 1294, making it one of the world's oldest carnival celebrations. For two weeks every February and March, Nice is full of open air music performances, parades, processions and carnival cheer. The Menton Lemon Festival, in its 84th year is quite unique. Locals use citrus fruit to create huge exhibitions and statues along a set theme - the results are truly impressive. 

Based in the beautiful Mediterranean city of Nice, with its wealth of artistic and architectural heritage, this tour also explores part of the French Riviera, renowned for both its beauty and artistic heritage. Highlights include the perfume town of Grasse, the medieval hilltop town of Saint-Paul-de-Vence; and Antibes, home of the Picasso Museum, housed in Chateau Grimaldi where the painter stayed on a six-month sojourn in 1946.
