You will meet your excursion driver/guide right outside the terminal building in Monte Carlo. In an exclusive group of no more than eight guests, you will depart Monte Carlo, following the motorway to reach the Medieval hilltop town of Eze, approximately 30 minutes away. Here, you will have approximately 30 minutes to take photos of the town, browse the shops at the base, or for the energetic, climb up into the medieval town. Those making the climb along the winding pedestrian streets will find amazing panoramic views of the Mediterranean coast including Cap Ferrat below.
Following your free time, a short visit is made at the nearby Fragonard perfume, soap, and cosmetics factory. The company began making perfumes in 1926, in the nearby town of Grasse, and now the family business is under the eye of the third generation. You will have a short guided visit and the staff on hand will explain how to choose a fragrance that is right for you.
Your sightseeing shore excursion transportation will continue through the hills, along the Middle Corniche, to the hillside village of La Turbie. You will stop for a photo overlooking the town and the ruins of the 6th century BC, Tropaeum Alpium, (Trophy of the Alps) erected by Roman Emperor Augustus to celebrate a victory. Many former pieces of the Trophy are now part of the homes and buildings that surround it.
A quick drive up and over the hill brings you to the French Riviera's lap of luxury, Monaco. First stop will be the Rock, known for the spectacular lookout over the rest of the city. Next you will have an exterior visit of the Royal Prince Palace. If your excursion time allows, you might have the chance to see the changing of the guard takes place daily at 11:55 AM. A short walk away is the Cathedral, where those wishing can see the final resting place of Prince Rainier and his Princess Grace.
You will then have two hours and 30 minutes of free time to explore, purchase lunch on your own, shop or possibly visit the Oceanographic Museum or other museums (all at extra cost). Your guide can make suggestions if you need.
At the appointed time, rejoin your driver/guide for a quick drive over to the famous Casino Square. There is time for a quick photo of the exterior of the Monte Carlo Casino, the Hotel de Paris, or the Cafe de Paris. Be sure to admire the endless lineup of exotic and luxury cars parked in front of them.
Departing the casino hill, your driver will follow a portion of the Monte Carlo Grand Prix circuit before returning to your Monte Carlo Monaco cruise pier located just beyond the Rock.
