Full description of the tour

Your private tour driver will welcome you in Nice or Monaco Port, for a private tour of the Flower Riviera!

Welcome to  “The Flower Riviera” on this private tour

Once there were two small Italian towns called Dolce Acqua and Bussana Vecchia. Both situated in a narrow coastal belt which lies between the ligurian sea and the Alps. The Mix of mountain and sea is what we call “Riviera”. The venues you will visit are situated in a unique and typical environment. Rustic villages, surrounded by nature and history.

In this fairy tale, you will retrace the steps of Monet, who painted the famous “bridge at Dolce Acqua” in 1884 – the original painting is currently in Massachusetts. The bridge was constructed in 15th century and spans the Nervia River connecting the old town called “terra” to the newer part called il Borgo.

The next town is Bussana Vecchia that is situated near Sanremo about 20 kilometers east of the border between Italy and France. In 1887 the mediaval village was destroyed by an earthquake that hit the region. Most of the people where in the church that day . . . the rest is history.

Bussana Vecchia is now an interesting town, filled with peculiar features and art. A very interesting place to visit.

This private tour will take you to explore some of the Italian and French Riviera’s hidden gems. Places that are just outside the common touristic path, for a different memorable experience.

After such an exciting and unique experience in the Flower Riviera, your private tour driver will take you back to your cruise ship in Nice or Monaco.
