Get picked up at your hotel or other accommodation in central Cannes in the morning and head out of the city along the Mediterranean coast.
Take in the gorgeous coastal views as you climb up to the hilltop town of Eze, which dates to the Medieval era. Wander the charming streets to the remains of a castle. Visit the garden and admire the sweeping views from the lofty position roughly 1,400 feet (427 meters) over the coast. Stop next at the Perfumerie Fragonard, a perfume factory, to learn how perfume is made.
Continue to the town of La Turbie to see the remains of the monument known as the Trophy of the Alps. This 1st century BC structure was dedicated to the Roman Emperor Augustus along a road that once led to Italy from Nice. It stands at 164 feet (50 meters) high. Admire the views over Monaco from this point.
Next, arrive in the principality of Monaco to see the historic sights in the old town – including the Prince's Palace, Oceanographic Museum, and cathedral. See the changing of the guard just before noon at the Prince's Palace and the tombs of Princess Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III in the cathedral. Check out the yachts in the harbor 197 feet (60 meters) below the old town on Le Rocher, or The Rock.
Choose an optional visit inside the Prince's Palace (own expense) or Oceanographic Museum (own expense) if you like, or hop on the tourist train to see the sights of the principality (own expense).
Rejoin your guide to visit Monte Carlo, where you'll take a spin on a portion of the Formula 1 Grand Prix racing circuit and see sights like the Casino and the Hôtel de Paris. At the conclusion of your visit to Monaco, you'll be returned to Cannes and your original departure point.
