February 12-24, 2020
The dark and damp of February is just around the corner. Instead of supplemental Vitamin D, consider journeying to Morocco and the Côte d’Azur for a garden-oriented escape to warmer climes.
We start with four nights and five days of touring in the garden capital of Morocco, Marrakech. We’ll stay at a traditional Riad in the Medina, a bustling center of the city dating back to the middle ages.
Marrakesh has beautiful gardens, wonderful shopping, tasty and exotic food, and enticingly warm weather in February. It’s Carnival Time in Nice! Parades, masks, and evening celebrations are scheduled throughout the town. We’ll participate in the celebration, while enjoying many of the gardens that thrive on the Cote d’Azur. Carnival in Nice has been celebrated in one form or another dating back to 1294.
We wrap up the tour in Menton where the 88th annual Lemon Festival (Fête du Citron) takes place on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Night time garden displays, parades, and a series of activities mark this weeklong celebration.
