Don't miss the chance to visit Nice while your cruise ship is docked in Monaco. It's very close by, and it's both beautiful and historic.

Begin this half-day shore excursion to Nice by meeting your guide at the cruise terminal and climbing into a climate-controlled minivan for the drive west along the scenic Middle Corniche coastal road. As you travel, marveling at the gorgeous Mediterranean views out the window, learn some history about the French Riviera from your knowledgeable guide.

Arrive in Nice and take a leisurely walk along the grand Promenade des Anglais to admire the Belle Epoque architecture. Make the ascent up Castle Hill to take in the incredible views over the city's buildings as well as waterfalls and gardens in the area.

Next, visit the neighborhood of Cimiez, once the place where Queen Victoria spent her winters, and today home to the Nice Jazz Festival that occurs every summer. It's also where you'll find many notable art museums. Drive down the Promenade des Arts to see the Acropolis Center, the Square Head sculpture by Sosno outside the library, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art and the remarkable onion domes of the Russian Orthodox Cathedral.

Explore Nice's Old Town (Vieux Nice), including the historic Place Garibaldi and the colorful flower market (mornings only) and busy cafés  at Cours Saleya.

After the tour is complete, you'll be returned to the cruise terminal in Monaco.

Great trip to Nice
, Oct 2019
We totally enjoyed our private trip with Jenna. She is fun, friendly, and informative . We saw the beautiful French Riviera, a beautiful garden and monastery, and free time at a lovely marketplace on the sea with restaurants and cafes. She shared lots of information all along the way and left us in Monte Carlo with more time to explore. We would recommend this trip!

Driver was nice but drove very fast along windy roads and didn't pay much attention to driving as she was talking. Stopped in Nice old town market area for about an hour and then drove back to Monte Carlo. Trip was not as expected.

For those with limited time, this tour is a good overview of Nice and the beautiful coast between Monaco and Nice. Our guide, Nicolas Kolesnikoff, was very knowledgeable and accommodating. One of our group of four had limited mobility so Nicolas modified the tour so she, too, could see the gorgeous countryside. The only problem was finding the right tour van at the congested dock.

It was fine and covered all the sights as stated. The driver, Momen, kept offering to change the itinerary. He wanted to take us to Eze, which I know is lovely, but the 4 of us are older and knew we were not up to the climb. If we had wanted a tour or Eze we would have booked it.

A bit disappointing. We were basically just dropped off to shop. Would have appreciated some info on the history of the area. If we did the same cruise over again, we would have just explored Monaco on our own instead.

We really liked the fact that there are only four people plus the driver in the van. This made for a more enjoyable trip. Nice and the French Riviera Côte d'Azur were wonderful. Our driver/guide was fantastic! I'm only sorry I don't remember his name. This excursion is a bargain and shouldn't be missed!
