Nestled on France’s Cote d’Azur between Nice and Menton, the coastal resort town of Monaco attracts jet-setters, Hollywood A-listers, and glamorous visitors alike keen to relax and party in the Mediterranean sunshine. Here are a few ways to experience the best of Monaco—day and night—from Cannes.
Full-day Monaco tours from Cannes whisk you along the coastal Lower Corniche road to top attractions including the Medieval hilltop town of Eze and the high-rolling casinos of Monte Carlo. Along the way, you can browse the chic boutiques’ racks and soak up the sunshine watching luxury yachts and elegant cruise ships in the harbor.
When darkness falls over coastal Monaco, the city comes alive with the glitz and glamour typical of the French Riviera. Evening tours take in sights of interest such as the Formula One Grand Prix circuit and Casino Square illuminated against the night sky, while a world of entertainment in the famous Monte Carlo Grand Casino awaits.
