Cannes Shore Excursion

This Cannes shore trip includes a driver-guide who takes you to most popular coastal towns on the French Riviera including Monaco and Monte Carlo, plus your choice to stop in Nice or Eze. Then in the later afternoon you stop at Chateau de Bellet for a winery visit and tasting.

After meeting your driver-guide at the pier in Cannes, you start the coastal drive to Nice by driving along the famous Croisette Boulevard in Cannes. This street is lined with 5 Stars hotels, designer boutiques and the Cannes Film Festival Palace. Leaving Cannes you pass through the charming town of Antibes and then finally into Nice.

Once you are in Nice you drive down La Promenade des Anglais, the famous palm tree lined street that parallels the most famous beach in the Riviera. You have the choice to visit the old town of Nice to walk through the beautiful flower market (closed Mondays when flea market takes place), or continue on to the medieval village of Eze, known for its stunning views and quaint charm.

Leaving Nice you follow the Lower Corniche road, which hugs the dramatic rocky coast line, until you reach the Principality of Monaco. You have free time to explore the old town of Monaco where you can see the guards outside the Royal Palace plus stroll through the Cathedral where Princess Grace is buried. Please note that no bare shoulders or shorts (above the knee) are allowed in the Cathedral.

Next you drive on the route of the legendary Grand Prix of Monte-Carlo Formula 1 circuit. This race takes place on the streets of Monte Carlo and your driver-guide will point out some of the more famous hairpin turns of the course.

This afternoon you stop in the modern city of Monte Carlo, home to the rich and famous. High rise condominiums fill your vision and the streets buzz with luxury cars. Get your camera ready as one can hardly believe the luxury of this unique place!

The famous Casino of Monte Carlo sits across from a lovely park which is also lined with designer boutiques, luxury hotels and more. Parked in front of the casino there are invariably some of the most expensive cars in the world such as Bentley, Porsche, Ferrari. Aston Martin and Lamborghini.

Your final stop of the day is the Chateau de Bellet for a private winery tour and tasting. You have the chance to walk in the vineyards which are well situated between the mountains and the sea. The site includes an historic chapel dating back to 1873. Today the chapel is used for receptions and wine tastings.
