Make the most of your time in port in Monaco with a small-group tour of the French Riviera in one day. Visit historic Antibes and its harbor full of multi-million dollar yachts in what's known as Billionaire's Quay. See where the International Film Festival takes place each year in Cannes. Stop in charming Saint-Paul-de-Vence and tour a perfumery in Eze. See Monte Carlo's stately Prince's Palace (Palais Princier) and opulent casinos and drive on the Formula One Grand Prix circuit. Group size for this shore excursion is limited to eight people to ensure a more personalized experience.
  • Full-day French Riviera highlights shore excursion from Monaco
  • Travel along the stunning Côte d’Azur to Antibes, Cannes, St-Paul-de-Vence and Eze
  • Admire luxury yachts in Antibes and tour the Fragonard perfumery in the village of Eze
  • See where celebrities convene for the Cannes International Film Festival
  • Admire top Monaco attractions including the Prince's Palace, Monte Carlo and the Formula One Grand Prix race circuit
  • Small-group shore excursion limited to eight people ensures personalized attention from a guide

Begin your shore excursion from Monaco with a pickup at the cruise terminal after your ship docks in the port. From there, you'll relax in a comfortable minivan and head out of the city along the beautiful coastal roads toward your first stop – historic Antibes.

Follow your knowledgeable guide on a walking tour of the historic center of seaside Antibes, then walk past Billionaire's Quay and its enormous, modern yachts for contrast. Next, stop in nearby Cannes for a drive down ritzy Croisette Boulevard (Promenade de la Croisette) and to see the site where the famous Cannes International Film Festival takes place every year – the Festival Palace (Palais des Festivals et des Congrès).

Enjoy free time in quaint Saint-Paul-de-Vence in Provence, where many artists and actors have lived over the years, to take a midday break for lunch (own expense). Continue with a scenic drive on the Middle Corniche road, which offers impressive views overlooking the Mediterranean Sea below, until you reach the town of Eze located high on a hill. Take a tour of the Fragonard perfumery to learn about the art and science of creating luxury perfumes.

Head back toward Monaco, passing through the historic town of La Turbie. It's a small village, but famous for a 1st-century BC Roman monument called the Trophy of the Alps (Trophée des Alps).

Upon returning to Monaco, take a driving tour of the principality – including the opulent casinos, fragrant gardens and the Prince's Palace (Palais Princier). Drive on the Formula One Grand Prix circuit, which cuts right through Monte Carlo, before returning to your ship.

Loved this tour!
, Aug 2019
The highlight of this tour was definitely Eze and the Fragonnard perfumery. We loved Eze, although walking up to the top is definitely a challenge! So many beautiful sights!

What a disappointing day and waste of time this turned out to be. We spent most of the day in traffic in the van seeing sights from the car. We finally got to St Paul de Vence which is gorgeous and had 40 minutes before having to race back for the next part of the tour. We left the tour.

A lot of driving, van not particularly comfortable and driver did not have a mic so folks in back couldn't hear much. Decent stop in Eze. Highlights were the Casino and a drive around the race course! Recommend Dick c

Our driver/guide was very new at his job only about one week and while he is a very nice young man, he wasn't ready to be out on his own yet. Guests were talking and instead of interrupting he let points of interest go by unannounced. When he did speak, it was too soft for the guests in the back of the van to hear him. At the perfumery stop, due to allergies to perfume, half of the guests asked to be dropped off at the town of EZE just a short ride up the hill, instead of waiting in the van so the others could have the full time shopping. He didn't do this. We waited outside while the others had limited time in the perfumery. He didn't give us any information at Cannes, just parked and gave us 25 minutes to sightsee. No reference was made to a rest stop in the area after driving over an hour after enjoying our morning coffee on the ship! He had to follow the schedule but 45 minutes wasn't enough time to enjoy our visit and find a restaurant for lunch later in the day too. Again, he is a wonderful young man and additional training and tweaking to the schedule is recommended.

Would recommend this tour. It covers many areas. One thing I would change is maybe a half hour for a beach stroll in Nice. The villages of St-Paul-de Vence and Eze are something special. Hint, have a glass of wine and lunch in St-Paul-de-Vence just as you enter or leave. Easier than in the village as they prefer a full meal customer. We skipped the perfume factory, and used the time for Eze village and the garden at the top. Awesome views. Monaco and the casino area is pretty but not my idea of fun. Too wealthy for me.

Excellent tour. The small group was just family so a real bonus. The driver could easily drive us into and out of places that would have taken much long walking. Beautiful sights!
