When your cruise ship docks at the Villefranche-sur-Mer port, just up the coast from Nice, your guide will pick you up from the cruise terminal in a 8-person luxury minivan and whisk you away on your half-day shore excursion to Antibes, Cannes and St-Paul-de-Vence.
Admire views of the French Riviera as you drive south along the Mediterranean coast to picturesque Antibes, a popular seaside resort town. Hop out to walk along the harbor, wander the town’s charming streets and listen as your guide points out historical points of interest. Then visit the world-famous harbor of Billionaire's Quay, home to some of the world’s largest and most impressive yachts.
Continue south along the coast to the chic city of Cannes. Marvel at gorgeous beaches as you drive along Croisette Boulevard (Promenade de la Croisette), lined with luxury hotels, expensive shops and restaurants. Arrive at the Festival Palace (Palais des Festivals et des Congrès), where the Cannes International Film Festival is held each year. See celebrity handprints on the walls and feel like a star as you mount the steps!
Take a different route on the way back to Villefranche, this time through the beautiful Provençal countryside. Stop to explore the fortified medieval village of St-Paul-de-Vence, the home of many popular actors and artists such as Marc Chagall.
