Day 4 Monaco & Monte Carlo

Meals included: B

Day 5 Cannes - at Leisure

Today has been left free for you to spend how you wish. You might want to laze on the beach, browse the designer boutiques or take a ferry to the Iles de Lerins. These two tiny traffic-free islands in the bay are crisscrossed by a network of well-marked walking trails, where you can discover hidden coves, tidal pools and unspoilt beaches. On Île Ste-Marguerite you could discover the 17th century Fort Royal, which served as a holding cell for prisoners including the mysterious 'Man in the Iron Mask'. And if you decide to head to Île St-Honorat you'll see a Cistercian abbey whose 20 or so monks tend the island's vineyards and also cultivate lavender and honey. There's no ferry between the two, so you'll have to return to the mainland in order to visit both. 
If you like to snorkel, you'll find the waters around the islands are teeming with life, including many protected species.​
