3. Full-Day Small Group Tour to Monaco and Eze

Enjoy a full-day guided tour of Monaco with a choice of departure locations. Your first stop will be in the medieval village of Eze, one of the most picturesque sites on the French Riviera. Dating from the Middle Ages, the village was built on top of the rocky outcrop for security reasons. Take to the cobbled streets and head to the exotic garden and the castle ruins, where you’ll have amazing views, from an altitude of 427 meters. Visit the famous Fragonard perfume factory in the village for a guided tour. Continue on to the village of La Turbie, known as the Terrace of Monaco owing to the panoramic view of the Principality of Monaco. Admire the ruins of an imposing monument, the Trophy of the Alps, dedicated to the Emperor Augustus, and built in 7 B.C. on the road that linked Italy to Cimiez (Nice). Next you’ll arrive in the Principality of Monaco. Spend the afternoon in the Old Town, overlooking the harbor and the sea from a height of 60 meters. See the changing of the guard at the Prince's Palace at 11:55. Visit the Cathedral, built in neo-Roman style in 1875, entirely of white stones from La Turbie. Its construction was completed in November 1903. The Monaco princes and Princesse Grace de Monaco were laid to rest in the Cathedral.

What people are saying about Monaco

Our day trip to Eze and Monaco began on time and we had a smaller group of only 4 travelers which was nice to have more space in the minivan. We began our trip to the Fragonard perfumery in Eze and since we had already visited the day prior on another tour in Grasse, our guide was very accommodating to our request to start our exploration of Eze earlier. The guide dropped off the other party at the perfumery and gave us a lift to the starting point to explore Eze. Eze was just wonderful to see and experience. We had an ample time of 1.5 hr to explore the place, buy a few jams from the Essence of Eze (highly recommend), and get great photos. It is a small village commune so you can see everything by foot in less than 2 hours. Monaco was incredible. We saw the changing of guards, Oceanography museum (separate tix cost), botanical gardens, did a lap around the Grand Prix race track, and visited Monte Carlo. Everything was amazing. Great tour guide as well!

Due to terrible traffic conditions we were late for our original appointment. Martin, however , was able to accommodate us at a later date. The tour itself was a real blast, we went to the top of castle hill, traveled through very scenic routes to Villefreche sur Mer and various other areas of Nice. Very highly recommended and well worth the time and money.

Best value for money activity we have done in Nice. The vehicle was received on time and equipped with a GPS to support with the route. The instructor provided us with all the instructions we needed.

We had a great time! The instructor was very nice, highly recommend.

Great experience, the best aquarium I've been to.
