Take 50,000 cans of pressurized “liquid spaghetti”, add 15 tons of confetti, floats full of flowers, plus tens of thousands of dancing patrons, and you have… a party! It’s the incredible and colourful Carnaval de Nice!
Join Frederic for the adventure as he takes you through Vieux Nice, east to the gardens, palaces and casinos of the tiny principality of Monaco, then north to the majestic, snow-covered peaks of the Maritime Alps and the Vallée de Merveilleux.
Travelling west, discover the picturesque medieval villages and monasteries of Provence,éi>, made famous by Renaissance painters like Monet and Van Gough, then onward to the fabulous, ancient Roman ruins of Nimes, Arles and Pont-de-Gard, nestled in the cities and valleys of the lush countryside.
Of course no trip to France would be complete, without a side trip to Paris... the City of Lights!
A colourful 90 minute historical and cultural slide show, enhanced by music from the Carnaval and Frederic's always amusing, tales from the trails.
Not to be missed!
