Beautiful landscapes of French riviera. A comprehensive tour. Not to be missed the Jardin exotique of Eze, at the top of the village, there is an entrance ticket of 6 euros, but the view you get from there, is worth it. If you love art, in Antibes there is Picasso museum, a beautiful collection in a castle. For art lovers a must see.

This is such a beautiful experience. The aroma are so pure and creating your own perfume felt very personal and it is such a good way to remember your time in Eze. The employees are so caring and passionate,you can tell they love their job. Would recommend 100%
