Cannes

In this episode, Francis moves the tour from Carcassonne to Cannes on the French Riviera.

They travel via the elegant French town of Aix-En-Provence, where to the delight of the Grand Tourists there's a tour of a sweet factory! They also step back in time when Francis arranges a visit to the studio of locally-born artist - the impressionist Cézanne.

Whilst in the Provencal region the tour visits the town of Grasse, the centre of the world's perfume industry, where they learn the secrets of the scents. There's also a chance for them to roll up their sleeves and try their hand at making tapenade, an olive based food paste, during a visit to an authentic Provencal herb garden.

Next it's on to the glitz and glamour of Cannes where Francis leads a walking tour of the world-famous boulevard, La Croisette. This is usually where the film stars strut their stuff and is home to the world's most expensive hotel suites, most expensive yachts and most expensive beach clubs. How will Francis's Irish tourists survive?
