Relax in a comfortable minivan for your private day trip to see the best of the French Riviera from Monaco. Enjoy spectacular scenery as you travel along roads overlooking the Mediterranean on your way to the first stop in Antibes.
Visit the historic city center of Antibes with your knowledgeable guide, and don't miss a look at the multi-million dollar yachts that bob in the water – they're some of the biggest yachts anywhere. Continue on to nearby Cannes for a drive along the glamorous Croisette Boulevard (Promenade de la Croisette). This street is lined with trendy shops and restaurants and lots of beautiful people. From there, see the Festival Palace (Palais des Festivals et des Congrès), where the Cannes International Film Festival is held each year.
Travel on to Saint-Paul-de-Vence, a picturesque Provencal village that has been home to many artists and actors over the years. Take a midday break for lunch (own expense).
After lunch, head up into the hills along the Middle Corniche road, which offers excellent views over the Mediterranean as you climb higher. Stop in the town of Eze, perched on a hill, for even more impressive views and Côte d'Azur charm, before taking a guided tour of Fragonard, the town's famous perfumery. Drive past the town of La Turbie, known as the 'Terrace of Monaco' and home to an ancient Roman monument built by Emperor Augustus in the 1st century BC.
Return to Monaco to see the stately Prince's Palace (Palais Princier), opulent casinos and grand gardens of Monte Carlo before driving on the Formula One Grand Prix circuit that cuts through the city.
