French Riviera Sightseeing Cruise from Nice

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Board your sightseeing boat at the Port of Nice for either a morning or afternoon tour.

    Bask in the glowing Mediterranean sun while you glide down the coast of the French Riviera. Listen to informative on-board commentary about the history of this region as you gaze up at the little villages perched on hillsides overlooking the water. Watch the landscape rise from the beaches through hills and up to the mountains in the distance. Admire the luxurious villas with their magnificent sea views.

    Cruise through the Rade de Villefranche-sur-Mer and around the Cap de Nice. Venture back toward the shore to see the fortress of the Citadelle. Turn around in the bay for the return trip along Cap Ferrat and into the Baie des Anges. Watch people stroll along the Promenade des Anglais in Nice.

    Your boat returns to the Port of Nice after about an hour's time on the water.

    Easy to find & great way to see around Nice. We had a beautiful day & sat upstairs. The breeze cooled you down & it took only an hour. Would highly recommend.

    It's only an hour, but you get a good view of the coast both north and south of the harbor. Water is so beautiful the entire trip, and so are the buildings, that it's easily worth the price.

    This cruise takes exactly one hour and allows you to see the beautiful Villefranche-Sur-Mer, Nice Port and the Promenade des Anglais from the sea. The commentary in French and English provides some interesting information but is let down by the fact that it is clearly...More

    It was ok. I was expecting more but only so much can be covered in one hour. I would look at a longer cruise if possible. Ok if you are in Nice and have some time to kill. Also, the instructions on confirmation could be...More

    If this is the ferry that goes out and around the bay, most likely not. It wasn’t that interesting anyway.
