8. Full-Day Small Group Tour to Monaco and Eze
Enjoy a full-day guided tour of Monaco with a choice of departure locations. Your first stop will be in the medieval village of Eze, one of the most picturesque sites on the French Riviera.
Dating from the Middle Ages, the village was built on top of the rocky outcrop for security reasons. Take to the cobbled streets and head to the exotic garden and the castle ruins, where you’ll have amazing views, from an altitude of 427 meters. Visit the famous Fragonard perfume factory in the village for a guided tour.
Continue on to the village of La Turbie, known as the Terrace of Monaco owing to the panoramic view of the Principality of Monaco. Admire the ruins of an imposing monument, the Trophy of the Alps, dedicated to the Emperor Augustus, and built in 7 B.C. on the road that linked Italy to Cimiez (Nice).
Next you’ll arrive in the Principality of Monaco. Spend the afternoon in the Old Town, overlooking the harbor and the sea from a height of 60 meters.
See the changing of the guard at the Prince's Palace at 11:55. Visit the Cathedral, built in neo-Roman style in 1875, entirely of white stones from La Turbie. Its construction was completed in November 1903. The Monaco princes and Princesse Grace de Monaco were laid to rest in the Cathedral.
You can enjoy optional visits to the Prince Palace and the Oceanographic Museum, or take a short Monaco tour on the little train (not included in the tour price).
Head to Monte Carlo following the famous Grand Prix track of Formula 1. See the stunning Casino de Monte-Carlo and the Hôtel de Paris, which features all the charm of the great hotels of the 19th century.
