8 Day Tour from Nice to Lyon

If you’ve imagined yourself in the shimmering French Riviera, the gracious fields of Provence, and the gourmet flavors of Lyon, say “Oui” to this Cosmos Lite budget vacation through southern France—ready for you to enjoy as you please. Arrive in Nice for a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais. Relax on the beach or find the perfect bowl of bouillabaisse with your CosmosGO mobile app. Maybe visit the birthplace of painter Chagall in St. Paul de Vence, before heading for the glittering city of Cannes. In the lovely Aix-en-Provence, discover a chic university city of moss-covered fountains, both old-world elegance and youthful vivacity flow. Visit its trendy shops, hip cafes, and cool open-air markets, and you’ll see why it’s been dubbed the “21st arrondissement of Paris.” Explore the medieval walls surrounding the Palace of the Popes in Avignon, and indulge in French favorites in a sidewalk café. Travel to see the sights awaiting in historic Orange, including the Arc de Triomphe, Ancient Roman triumphal arch, and the Théâtre Antique, one of only three standing Roman theatres in the world. On the way to Montélimar, see the aromatic lavender fields and, in the town, the café-lined promenades in France’s “gateway to Provence.” Sample its famously delicious nougat made of almonds and honey.

Spend two nights in Lyon—the gastronomic capital of France—to celebrate your à la carte Cosmos Lite tour of France. You choose how to spend your days with MyCOSMOS excursions, and your CosmosGO mobile app has all the details on guided tours, restaurants, and activities to make the most of your days in France!
