Itinerary:

The Riviera has a long history in both perfume making and glass blowing, traditions going back to antiquity and the medieval days. Start in Grasse, located on the Route Napoleon and considered to be the world capital of perfum making. After having a stroll through the winding streets and old squares, enjoy a walk through the outdoor markets before joining a perfume workshop for a 2 hours course. Helped by a professional nose assistant, you will get to make your own perfume. Your driver will then take you to Biot, an incredible hilltop village where craftsmen have been producing beautiful ceramics here since Antiquity. Examples of which, including antique pieces and more modern bubble-blown glass, are displayed in the local history and ceramics museum. You will also be able to take a 20 mins glassblowing course experience. You will then return towards Nice and drive along its beautiful coastline, its flower market and terrace restaurants.

Recommendation :

En route, enjoy a wine tasting at Château de Bellet, a remarkable vineyard with long historic heritage, amazing scenery and property.
