This eight hour Antibes shore trip
visits the most popular stops (Nice, Monaco, Monte Carlo, Eze and Cannes) in the Riviera with some free time built into the itinerary to have lunch during the tour.
After meeting your driver guide at the pier in Antibes, you immediately depart for Nice, where you'll drive along La Promenade des Anglais, the street that runs along the most famous beach in the Riviera. You will have a chance to walk through the famous flower market (closed Mondays when flea market takes place) in the old town before stopping on Castle Hill, where the Greeks first arrived and where you can admire a beautiful view over the beach, the old town and the port of Nice.
Leaving Nice you follow the Lower Corniche which hugs the dramatic rocky coast line to the unforgettable Principality of Monaco. Your first stop is the old town of Monaco. If you are here at noon, you'll have a chance to see the changing of the guards in front of the royal palace. A must for many people is the Cathedral where Princess Grace is buried.
Next you'll follow the path of the legendary Grand Prix of Monte-Carlo Formula 1 circuit. A stop in the modern city of Monte Carlo allows you to experience the unbelievable luxury of this unique place! You will have time to see designer shops, luxury hotels and the famous Casino and gardens.
You have free time in either Monaco or Monte Carlo so you can enjoy lunch on your own.
Later today you stop in Eze where you'll visit a typical French medieval village made up of narrow lanes and stone buildings. Eze clings to the cliffs over 1000 feet above the sea. Walk to the top of the city's hill where a garden setting view point overlooks the sea. Take time to peak into the boutiques or enjoy an ice cream with a million dollar view. If you are not up to walking, you can enjoy the scents of Provence at the adjacent Fragonard perfume factory.
Next you drive to Cannes along the Upper Corniche, the road which runs along the cliff tops high above the sea. When you get back into Cannes you'll drive up the step streets to the "suquet", the heart of the old town, where you have views over the whole city. You'll also stop so you can stroll the beautiful Croisette Boulevard, lined with 5 Stars hotels, designer boutiques and the Cannes Film Festival Palace which gives Cannes its renowned "Hollywood" atmosphere.
At the end of your private tour, the driver guide will bring you back to the port in Antibes.Notes on the Casino
