What You Can Expect

Monaco Shore Excursion: Private Day Trip to Monaco, Eze and Nice

Monaco Shore Excursion: Private Day Trip to Monaco, Eze and Nice

Begin your French Riviera shore excursion with a convenient pick-up at the Monaco port and head right for Monaco's Old Town. Enjoy some free time to see the sights – including the royal palace (open June to October) if you like – before heading to the resort area within Monaco, Monte Carlo.

Here, you'll ride around one lap of the famous Formula One Grand Prix circuit in Monte Carlo before some free time in Casino Square. This glamorous setting makes for some excellent people-watching, or you can browse the chic shops, manicured gardens or yacht-filled harbor.

From Monte Carlo, you'll take a scenic drive up into the hills above the French Riviera to the Medieval village of Eze. Take in sweeping views, browse little shops full of locally-made crafts and go on a guided tour of a perfumery.

The final stop on your shore excursion is Nice, one of the jewels of the Côte d'Azur. To reach the city, you'll travel along the Middle Corniche road – stopping to enjoy the views over the bay at Villefranche – before enjoying a pleasant walk through Nice's Old Town, including the historic Place Garibaldi and the flower market at Cours Saleya.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

My three daughters and myself booked a tour for the above excursion in November 2017 and it couldn't have been any nicer. Our guide Nadia sp was prompt, polite, informative and he had a wonderful personality plus the van was very clean. We felt completely safe and I would book Viator again and would recommend it to anyone.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

This tour was fantastic. I must say our tour guide, Camile, was exceptional. One of the best I ever experienced. Having a private tour was a great decision on our part. We had purchased tickets for the Monte Carlo royal palace before we sailed. Camile gave us all the time we needed to explore the towns. She was very informative and very nice.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Andreas was a lovely guide. He listened to my family's wishes of what to see and delivered exactly what we wanted. We visited the Farmer's market in Nice, the village of Eze, and had a lovely French lunch in another quaint Medieval village before returning to our ship with our last stop at the casino in Monte Carlo for a look and nearby for some ice cream!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Our guide, Victor, gave a great overview of Eze, Monaco and Nice, in that order. We particularly like seeing Nice from high above the city and then driving down into the city. Previously, we had seen the city only from the beach. If you want a great overview in a private car, this is the trip for you.

This was a fabulous tour. Our guide picked us up promptly at the port. We mentioned that we would prefer to see Eze and Nice first, no problem. Returning us to Monaco, where we could return to the ship, or stay in Monaco for more shopping time. Excellent tour.
