Embark on a vibrant Shore Excursion from Cannes or Antibes Ports of Call to visit Eze, Monaco and Monte Carlo
Today, we will come and pick you up at your cruise ship in Cannes or Antibes ports of call. Meet your English speaking driver-guide who will go over the itinerary and program of the day on this private tour in the French Riviera. From the city of Cannes France known for its famous Croisette boulevard and film festival palace and red carpet, depart for a full-day tour to visit the Principality of Monaco and its Capital Monte Carlo. Then reach the medieval village of Eze where you will have some free time to explore a unique location praised by painters and actors alike and that offers stunning views over the French Riviera.
Hanging over the Sea, the hilltop village of Eze has retained all its charms throughout the centuries. From the ruins of its medieval fortress to its charming, narrow streets, the small village now attracts a multitude of artisans and artists. Established in what used to be barns or sheepfolds, they definitely contribute to the local ambiance of this peaceful area. Celebrated for the calm that can be found here, numerous writers have also decided to settle down here, one of the most famous being Nietzsche who is said to have written Thus Spoke Zarathustra in Eze. Visit the village and then discover the Fragonard perfume factory.
The famous perfume company Fragonard was established in 1926 by Eugène Fuchs who named his company after the 18th c. French Painter and to pay homage to the town of Grass (the French capital of perfumes) for having greeted the famed painter and his family. During the visit, discover the manufacturing secrets of the products: perfumes, soaps, and cosmetics developed from the best raw materials using expertise which combines traditional methods and modern techniques.
After the visit, head towards Monte-Carlo and walk in the small streets of the old town. Your tour will include the changing of the Guards that takes place just before midday. You will also have the possibility of visiting the Neo-Romanesque Cathedral as well as the Memorial dedicated to Princess Grace & Rainier of Monaco.
Finally, end the tour in Monaco. Here you will discover the famous Old Casino, the Hotel de Paris, and Café de Paris, the beautiful Gardens not forgetting the Deluxe Boutiques. Upon arrival or departure, you will also have the opportunity to drive on the Formula 1 world-famous race track. The drive back to Nice will also include the famous low coastal road.
This private shore excursion can also be taken as a Monte Carlo Shore Excursion.
