French & Italian Riviera Excursion: From Cannes, French Riviera, Monaco, or Nice
Experience a Unique, Private Tour of the French Riviera
DURATION: UP TO 8-HOURS
Your personal English-speaking driver will show you the best, from highlights to hidden treasure of the French Riviera.
The town of Villefranche-sur-Mer spreads over three Coastal roads- the lower, middle and upper roads- each one offering a superb view on the bay of VilleFranche and the Cap Ferrat. Explore the town starting from the imposing 16th century Citadelle Sainte-Elme. Move on from the Citadel to discover the cobbled streets of the old town. Last but not least, Villefranche-sur-mer’s attractive harbor offers a pleasant walk to the beach.
Looking over the Principality of Monaco, 480m up on the Grande Corniche, makes La Turbie the perfect viewpoint from which to survey the coastline below. You will be moved by the village’s charm, with its narrow paved streets and vaulted passageways dating back to the Middle-Ages, its tastefully restored houses and shady small squares.
Roquebrune-Cap-Martin is a medieval village perched on a rocky outcrop high over the Mediterranean. It is a picturesque village with narrow streets, stepped-streets, stone steps, one-person-wide walkways and deep vaulted passages. There are lovely little squares and fountains here and there, wrought-iron balconies and other charming discoveries. There, you will be enchanted by St. Marguerite’s church, the ancients olive tree, the cave of Vallonet and Le Corbusier’s cabin.
A city of gardens, a seaport and a beach resort all in one, Menton is a jewel in the South of France. Its heart is located in the old town, where the Medieval style buildings grouped around the Eglise St Michel and the Chapel de Pénitents Blancs stand at the top of the hill. Menton is said to be the warmest town on the French Riviera, which was the reason for its popularity during the Belle Époque, when British visitors and Russian princes flocked to the town and luxury hotels.
San Remo, situated between the sea and the mountains in a wide bay protected by two headlands, is the elegant capital of the Italian Riviera. Its main attractions are its almost continual sunshine, warm climate, hotels and villas, marina, spa centres, racecourse and casino. It is also Italy’s main commercial centre for flowers.
Pick-Up/Drop-Off: Your driver will pick you up from the lobby of your French Riviera hotel (Nice, Cannes, Monaco).
