WHAT IS INCLUDED:
The Nice, Monaco, Monte-Carlo and Eze private tour is the most popular shore excursion on the French Riviera.
You'll visit the Vieux Nice – the old town and its flower market. This market, located on the Cours Saleya, is a must-see in Nice. It is held every day, except Mondays, when the place is occupied by the antique fair. With this private tour, discover the Nice's Mont-Boron area where the rich and famous choose to live because of the breathtaking views of Nice, the port and the bay, which is also known as the Bay of Angels. In case you have seen Vieux Nice, we will show you the Cimiez area, the bourgeois and calmer side of Nice, where Queen Victoria, as well as other royal families and rich aristocrates used to come to spend long winter holidays.
The private tour will take you to the Principality of Monaco, the independent State under the Prince Grimaldi's family rule for more than 700 years, and the member of the United Nations. You will visit the Old town of Monaco, the Prince Albert II's Palace (from outside, the visit inside is optional). You will see the Monaco Cathedral of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, also known as Saint Nicholas Cathedral of Monaco, where many of the Grimaldis were buried, including Grace Kelly and her husband the Prince Rainier III.
The private tour in Monaco continues with the visit of Monte-Carlo, a chic area in Monaco, with the historical buildings of Hotel de Paris and the Monte-Carlo Casino – the world’s most famous gambling place, dating from the mid-19th century. Get driven along the streets of Monaco and Monte-Carlo, where every year the Monte-Carlo Formula One race takes place and feel the racing spirit rising in you.
With this private tour you will also discover the picturesque village of Eze. The village's beginnings date from the 13th century. Tiny and stone paved streets lead to the summit of this medieval village where ruins of the old castle of Eze remain. When walking in Eze, admire the art galleries and the breathtaking views of the Mediterranean sea. The Côte d'Azur - French Riviera, and particularly the city of Grasse, is worldwide famous for producing perfume, and you can visit the perfume factory in Eze free of charge (optional).
In this private tour, we include the drive along the Moyenne Corniche road, located between Nice and Monaco. This road has often been used by movie directors (remember the older James Bond series and more recent, Transporter). All along this road, you will enjoy breathtaking views of the Côte d'Azur - French Riviera, the peninsula of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and the bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer. On this private tour you can stop whenever you want to take scenic pictures.
The private tour to Nice, Monaco, Monte-Carlo & Eze gives the best insight of Monaco and Eze. You'll have time for a meal and for shopping or to add another activity such as the visit of la Turbie village with its Roman Empire's Trophee or the visit of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco, a fun moment for the children. This private tour is easy for any participant, but Eze requires some walking. For those who can't walk much, they can stay with the driver-guide or chill-out in a nearby café.
