Expeditions

ITALY, MONACO & FRANCE!

With The JC Raulston Arboretum 

June 22 - July 3, 2017

Your garden adventure commences on the shores of Lake Como where you will stroll through stunning gardens and charming lakeside towns with breathtaking views. Our garden adventure continues as we head south toward Menton on the French Riviera. We’ll explore some of the planet’s most beautiful gardens and visit the botanical gardens of Monaco. We then make our way to Arles, one of Van Gogh’s homes in Provence, and a charming town full of great restaurants and Roman archeological treasures. It was here that Van Gogh painted his famous café scenes and lived with Paul Gaugin in the Studio of the South. The hill towns beckon, so we’ve planned excursions into the countryside to soak up the sunny ambiance and one of the famed Provençal open-air markets. We’ll end our journey in Nice on the Côte d’Azur. Join JC Raulston Arboretum and savor all that Provence, the Riviera, Monaco and Lake Como have to offer:  wine tastings, world-class art, Roman ruins, lush gardens and Provençal markets are all included.
