Monte Carlo, Eze and La Turbie
Departing from the cruise pier in Cannes with your driver / guide and a group of no more than eight, you will drive to the hilltop Medieval town of Eze, approximately 40 minutes away. During the drive, your driver / guide will point out what you are seeing. A stop will be made to take photos of this charming village clinging to the cliffside with magnificent views overlooking the French Riviera. There will also be approximately 30 minutes for those brave enough to make the climb.
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.
Then drive to the luxurious principality of Monaco, 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 and make a brief stop for photos of the exterior of the casino and enjoy time to view the gardens. This will be followed with a drive along a portion of the Monte Carlo Grand Prix circuit before making the approximately one hour drive back to Cannes.

This was by far our favorite excursion on our 10 day trip. Our guide was so friendly and wonderful & a great driver! The area was SO beautiful I hope to go back & spend time someday. We loved the small group of only 8 on our tour - it made it so much nicer! THANK YOU!!!

By having a smaller tour group, we were able to have more free time, less people to have to wait on, the tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area

It's amazing how much we experienced of this beautiful area in only 5 hrs. That was partly due to the offensive driving ability of our tour guide/driver. The Medieval village of Eze was very charming especially in contrast to the luxurious beauty of Monaco.
We really enjoyed the trip to Eze; what a gorgeous medieval village with fantastic views. Our stop at a perfume factory was interesting, fun, and very French. Monte Carlo was beautiful and easy to walk around.

Hard working, informative, guide. Only criticism was that she seemed flustered by all she wanted to show and tell us. Wish she could have been less stressed.
