The Carpinteria Valley Chamber is pleased to announce a guided tour of the French Riviera Nov. 1-9, 2016.

Chamber and community members are invited on this unique travel opportunity, designed to give travelers a taste of the history, cuisine and culture of the French Riviera.

Travelers will enjoy all seven nights in one hotel, located in the city of Nice, one of the largest cities in the French Riviera and set on the Mediterranean Sea.

Included in the tour is an excursion to Monte Carlo with a visit to the city’s famed casino, beautiful cathedral and Princess Grace’s tomb.  

Travelers will enjoy day trips to the seaside towns of Cannes (known for its annual film festival), St. Tropez and Ventimiglia on the Italian Riviera. A visit to the Fragonard Perfume Factory is also included.

An optional tour to Aix-en-Provence is also available, which includes a tour of the painter Cezanne’s studio and a wine tasting at a local vineyard.

The tour price is $2,950 per person (double occupancy) and includes roundtrip airfare from Los Angeles, first class hotel accommodations, 10 meals, professional tour escort, baggage handling and sightseeing with admission to all attractions per itinerary. 

To provide more information, a presentation at the Carpinteria Valley Chamber office (1056 Eugenia Pl, Carpinteria) will be held at both 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 30.  

This is an excellent chance to see the places you’ll be visiting on the tour and answer all travel questions that you might have.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
