French Riviera

Departing from the Cannes cruise pier in groups of no more than eight guests, your driver / guide, will drive you to the hilltop Medieval town of Eze, approximately 40 minutes away. During the drive, your driver / guide will point out the sights along the way. A stop will be made to take photos of this charming village clinging to the cliffside and its magnificent views overlooking the French Riviera.

A stop will be made to visit the nearby perfume factory Fragonard, which has been producing scents for more than three generations.

A scenic drive will be taken through the hillside village of La Turbie, with its "Trophy of the Alps" and scenic landscape.

You will then drive to Monte Carlo, approximately 20 minutes away, where you will drive directly to the old town and enjoy an exterior visit to the Royal Prince Palace before walking to the Cathedral, where you will have an interior visit. You will then drive to the Casino Square, where you will have approximately 20 minutes free time to get a brief look at the interior lobby of the casino or view the gardens. This will be followed with a drive along a portion of the Monte Carlo Grand Prix circuit.

Then it's off to the typical Medieval village of Saint Paul de Vence, approximately 40 minutes away, where you will have approximately 1 hour to explore the winding streets made famous by actors and artists living there, or purchase lunch on your own.

You will then drive 30 minutes to the old town of Antibes, and see the incredible harbor and its ramparts. A stop will be made for photos.

Then it's on to Cannes, where a drive along the Croisette Boulevard will bring you to the Film Festival Palace. A stop will be made for an exterior visit and a chance for you to feel like a star walking up the world-famous steps.

From here, you will be driven back to the pier area.
