What It Is
The French Riviera is beautiful in the daytime but looks truly magical lit up at night with romance in the air and a vibrant atmosphere as the rich and famous head out for a night on the town!
From Vista Palace in the hillside village of Eze the sprawling lights of Monaco can be admired.
Monaco is the 2nd smallest country in the world that's well known and loved for its favorable income tax policy and the Formula One Grand Prix race track. The Cathedral is where Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier III and is her final resting place with many people visiting to pay their respects.
Monte Carlo is home to the world-famous Casino, Cafe de Paris located on Casino Square, and the stunning Salle Garnier Opera House.
Your Experience With Lights of Monaco and Monte Carlo Evening Tour
You will be collected from your central Nice hotel and transported, along with other participants, by minibus along the coastal ride to the hillside village of Eze where you can admire the sprawling lights of Monaco from your viewpoint at the Vista Palace.
Your driver will then take you down into Monaco where you'll be able to see the Prince Palace, the Old Town, and the Cathedral along with the changing of the guards.
Next you'll go to Monte Carlo and be able to boast to friends and family that you went on the F1 Grand Prix race track!
