Testimonial

“Thoroughly enjoyed and gained a huge amount of knowledge”
Customer on the 2019 Art on the Côte d'Azur tour with Sarah Burles.

FITNESS/PRACTICALITIES

A good level of fitness is required for this tour, as some visits will be made on foot and by boat. Participants must be prepared to navigate steps and walk for up to a mile at a time, occasionally uphill and on uneven ground.  To access the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Nice participants are required to traverse a number of steps, as there is no ramp, and the museum does not have a lift to reach the first floor.  The longest coach journey is to St Tropez, taking approximately 2 ½ hours, and we hope to return by boat (weather permitting), although this can be choppy if windy.
