Monte Carlo & Italian Riviera

Banish the winter blues and head for warmer climes on our ever popular holiday to the wonderful citrus-scented spectacular on the dazzling Cote d'Azur. Created in Menton in the 1930s, this world-famous 'Fete du Citron' sees the creation of huge fruity exhibitions, floats, decorations and statues in amazing shades of yellow and orange.

Reserved seats provide the perfect vantage point to enjoy the carnival atmosphere of the Golden Fruit Parade with zesty floats depicting everything from horses to dinosaurs and elephants to Buddhas along the Promenade du Soleil.

Enjoy a little bit of Monte Carlo magic, just like the world's rich and famous, and soak up the atmosphere, marvel at the mega yachts crammed in the marina and imagine the drama at the F1 racetrack.
