Experience the French Riviera on a half-day guided tour which takes you to Monaco, Monte Carlo, and the hillside village of Eze.
The picturesque medieval village of Eze boasts some wonderful panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea with the French Riviera laid out before your eyes and enroute to Monaco you can admire the views from 'The Terrace " as you pass through the village of La Turbie with the Principality of Monaco below.
The stunning neo-romanesque cathedral is the resting place of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier III and the city still has a changing of the guards ceremony daily at 11.50.
You'll also be able to say you've ridden on the Monaco Grand Prix road circuit which has seen many Formula 1 drivers make a bad decision and crash their racing car but you'll be in safe hands with your driver/guide as you make your way to Casino Square. See the famous casino built by Garnier and soak in some of Montro Carlo's magic! Look out for the famous Hotel de Paris which dates back to 1864, and perhaps enjoy a coffee or do some window shopping in this place that's all glitz and glamour.
