Vacation Overview
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 Monte´limar, 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!

Nice to Lyon Explorer (77002020) Day 1:
Arrive in Nice, France. Nice? Nice!
Hello, French Riviera! Settle into your Nice hotel and, if you have time, take a walk along the Promenade des Anglais. Meet your Tour Director in the early evening, who will introduce you to your upcoming adventure and give you recommendations on how to enjoy Nice and France like a local.

Day 2:
Explore Nice. Beach or Bouillabaisse?
There are many things to see and do in this lively seaside city. Explore with the assistance of your CosmosGO app, maybe spend some time on the beach, or try the traditional bouillabaisse fish soup in one of the many bistros. If you wish, join the afternoon optional excursion to St Paul de Vence, famous for having been home to artists, such as Picasso and Chagall, as well as actors Roger Moore and Yves Montand. If you 'd like to visit the Principality of Monaco this evening, just book the optional excursion on MyCOSMOS. (B)

Day 3:
Nice-Cannes-Aix-en-Provence. Red Carpet glamour and Old Town elegance
Cannes is the image of red carpet and cameras flashing during the May film festival, but it also has a more down-to earth side which comes alive at the street market, where you can find anything from fruit and vegetables to soaps, pottery and table cloths. Aix-en-Provence, on the other hand, has an aura of elegance mixed with the lively character of a university town.
Today 's Distance: 115 mi/ 185 km (B)

Day 4:
Explore Aix-en-Provence. Provence at its Finest
Aix is a mosaic of pictures, bright with the colors of festivals, festivities and traditions, Provençal markets, sun-ripened foods, country walks, and countless leisure activities. See the colors of Cézanne and learn about the father of modern painting. Stroll through the places and landscapes which influenced his outlook on life and art. Experience and discover this lovely and lively town your way. (B)

Day 5:
Aix-en-Provence-Avignon-Orange. Sur le Famous Pont and Roman History
Avignon 's historical center is surrounded by Medieval walls, protecting the famous Palace of the Popes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and many more, narrow alleys and friendly squares. Look for the famous bridge of the song or sit in a café and people-watch. Orange goes back to Roman times, and many of those ancient treasures still stand. Taste some Côtes du Rhône wines for some true local flavor.
Today 's Distance: 75 mi/ 120 km (B)

Day 6:
Orange-Montelimar-Lyon. Wine, Nougat, and Coq au Vin
Each one of today 's destinations has its gourmet specialities. Wine? You 'll be spoiled for choice as this is one of the most celebrated wine-producing areas. Nougat? Montelimar is the quintessential French town sweetened by a tradition of nougat making. Coq au Vin (rooster in wine sauce) is one of the most traditional recipes of the Lyon area. Lyon is a city worth exploring, with its museums, Roman sites, silk weaver workshops, markets, squares and romantic river banks and bridges. Ask your Tour Director for suggestions and use your CosmosGO app to show the way.
Today 's Distance: 127 mi/ 205 km (B)

Day 7:
Explore Lyon. Savoir Vivre
Plan your favorite activity for the day, whether it is taking the funicular to Fourviere hill for a panoramic sweeping view of the city, a visit to the Basilica and to the ancient ruins of Lugdunum, or a stroll through the hidden traboules (passages) of Vieux (old)Lyon. Brush up on your school French as you explore independently, or follow a local expert guide through the highlights on the optional sightseeing tour. (B)

Lyon. Your personally tailored vacation ends in Lyon this morning. (B)
