Explore two sides of the French Riviera with this small-group half-day tour of glitzy Monaco and historic Eze.
Travel in a comfortable minivan along the Middle Corniche road, a particularly scenic stretch of road between Nice and Monaco from which you're afforded excellent views over the region. Climb into the hills toward Eze, which sits on a hilltop roughly 1,400 feet (427 meters) over the Mediterranean. Join your knowledgeable guide on a walking tour of this Medieval village, browse the small shops selling locally-made handicrafts and take a guided tour of the famous Fragonard perfumery.
Travel through the charming historic town of La Turbie on the way back to Monaco. This town is sometimes referred to as the 'Terrace of Monaco,' and is well-known as the home of an ancient Roman monument called the Trophy of the Alps (Trophée des Alpes), built in the 1st century BC by Emperor Augustus.
Back in Monaco, witness the Changing of the Guard (occurs at 11:55am only) at the Prince's Palace (Palais Princier). See the Monaco Cathedral (also known as the Saint Nicholas Cathedral), where both Princess Grace and Prince Rainier are buried. Drive through the streets of Monaco, some of which form part of the racing circuit for the Formula One Grand Prix that takes place here annually, drawing countless fans from nations far and wide. After a stroll through glamorous Casino Square in Monte Carlo, admiring the luxury hotels and manicured gardens, your tour comes to an end.
