Old World Isles & Inlets: See iconic highlights of the Western Mediterranean on a marvelous sojourn that showcases the stirring scenery of Provence, the resplendent villages of Cinque Terre, the triumphs of Tuscany and the romance of Monte Carlo.
On this Ensemble Experience, you’ll head off the beaten track to a lesser known area of the beautiful Cote d’Azur region. Relax on your coach and enjoy the scenic uphill drive towards the pre-alp mountains and the picturesque village of Sainte-Agnès.
Perched overlooking the sea and mountains, this medieval hidden gem claims to be the highest coastal village in Europe. Sainte-Agnès is also classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France. The coach will drop you at the foot of the village and you can enjoy a nice uphill walk to a vista point overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, before entering the historical Fort Maginot.
A local historian will guide you through this military fort, created between 1932 and 1938 to protect the French border. It’s part of the famous “Maginot Line” fortification which was built during the 1st and 2nd World Wars, starting at the Mediterranean Sea, along the Italian, Swiss and German borders all the way to Luxembourg.
Discover the underground rooms with state-of-the-art equipment for the time. Although the village only had running water and sewerage in 1960, the fort had these amenities as early as 1938. In addition, a power plant supplied central heating, telephone, regulated air and a neutralization room against combat gas. The Fort could accommodate 350 troops living there in complete self-sufficiency for 3 months.
A short documentary video will give you more details about the history of the occupation in Sainte Agnès.
Afterwards, enjoy some time to stroll around the charming village before savoring some refreshments at a local restaurant.
