Tour description provided by Viator

See all the highlights of the glamorous French Riviera on a small-group day trip from Monaco. Traveling by minivan with an expert guide, you'll watch billion-dollar yachts in the harbor of Antibes, see the famous Festival Palace in Cannes, and enjoy a guided perfumery tour in Eze. Your full-day trip ends back in Monaco, where you'll see the impressive Prince's Palace and the grand casinos of Monte Carlo, and drive along the road used for the world-famous Formula One Grand Prix.

This small-group day trip is limited to just eight passengers, ensuring you receive personalized attention and have a more intimate experience.

The French Riviera (Côte d'Azur) is well known for its chic hotels and luxury yachts, and will captivate you with its picturesque coastal towns and magnificent views of the sea. Sit back and relax on the scenic drive to your first stop of the day -- the historic town of Antibes, where you'll visit the beautiful old town and catch a glimpse of the luxury yachts at Billionaire's Quay.

Heading west from Antibes, arrive next in Cannes, where you'll drive along Croisette Boulevard (Promenade de la Croisette) and see the Festival Palace (Palais des Festivals et des Congrès), which hosts the world-famous Cannes Film Festival every year. After Cannes, make your way to the charming village of St-Paul-de-Vence in Provence, famous for the many actors and artists who live there. Here you’ll have free time for lunch (own expense).

Continue your full-day trip along the spectacular Middle Corniche, a coastal road with fabulous Mediterranean vistas. On arrival in the hill-top village of Eze, enjoy splendid sea views before joining a guided tour of the famous Fragonard perfume factory. Pass La Turbie, a village known as the 'Terrace of Monaco' and famous for the impressive Roman monument Trophy of the Alps, built by Emperor Augustus.

Your small-group tour ends in Monaco, where you'll see the Prince's Palace (Palais Princier). Before you return to your hotel, you'll also see the beautiful gardens and vibrant casinos in Monte Carlo and drive along the road that is used for Monaco's famous annual race, the Formula One Grand Prix.
