What to Expect
Scattered along the southern coast of France lie some of the most beautiful towns and villages, as well as stunning vistas from coastal roads. Take a half-day shore excursion with a private guide and explore 3 of the best of the French Riviera’s jewels.
Departing the pier of Monaco, drive along the Low Corniche road hugging the terrific rocky coastline to Nice. See the super-glamorous Promenade des Anglais, with its popular beach and magnet for all manner of local life. Continue to the Old Town of Nice, founded in the 13th-Century. Enjoy some free time at the daily flower market in one of the most traditional of the city’s squares.
Visit the typical medieval village of Eze, made up of narrow lanes and stone buildings. The picturesque village clings to the cliffs over 1,200 feet (400 meters) above sea level. Walk to the top of the hill and be rewarded with fantastic sea views at a lovely garden setting.
Return to Monaco and tour the Old City. You will visit the Prince’s Palace, which dates back to the days when it served as a Genoese fortress in the 12th-Century. Go to the Cathedral where Prince Rainier and Princess Grace got married in 1956.
You will drive a lap of the world famous F1 Grand Prix circuit to reach Monte Carlo and the famous Casino, the Golden Square, the exquisite Hotel de Paris, and the chic Hotel Hermitage. Soak up the luxurious atmosphere before you return to your cruise ship.
