French Riviera walking tours

The French Riviera is a great location for a France walking tour that perfectly combines the mountains and the sea.  The landscapes are incredibly varied and jaw droppingly beautiful. Your self- guided walking holiday in the French Riviera starts close to the Italian border and offers a cultural mix of French and Italian influences, passing through the beautiful villages and towns of Breil sur Roya, Sospel, the quaint village of Olivetta in Italy,  Saint-Agnes, Menton and many more… Starting in the back country, high above Nice, wonder through the Alps and the  Mercantour National park to the glistening blue waters of the Mediterranean sea.
