Private Customized French Riviera Half-Day Tour from Monaco, Nice, or Cannes

Highlights

  • Join an experienced guide for a private half-day tour exploring two sides of the French Riviera (Côte d'Azur). Climb into a comfortable vehicle and begin the ascent up the Middle Corniche road toward hilltop Eze. This road, which stretches between Nice and Monaco, gives you a chance to take in some excellent views over the Mediterranean as you drive. Upon arriving in Eze, which sits at 1,400 feet (427 meters), you're treated to even more awesome views. Follow your guide on a walking tour of Medieval Eze. Browse the small shops selling locally-made handicrafts. Take a guided tour of Fragonard, a famous perfumery, to find out about the mix of art and science that go into making perfume. Making your way back down toward Monaco, drive through a town known as the 'Terrace of Monaco' – La Turbie. Here, your guide points out the ancient Roman monument built by Emperor Augustus in the 1st century BC, the Trophy of the Alps (Trophée des Alpes). Back in Monaco, see the Prince's Palace (Palais Princier) and the Monaco Cathedral (St Nicholas Cathedral), where both Princess Grace and Prince Rainier are buried. Drive on the Monte Carlo road that serves as the Formula One Grand Prix racing circuit. Wander through Casino Square to see opulent casinos, fragrant gardens and some world-class people-watching. At the conclusion of your private tour, you'll be returned to your hotel in Monaco.
