Begin your French Riviera small-group tour with morning pickup at your hotel in Monaco, then relax in a comfortable 8-person minibus as you drive up into the hills overlooking the Mediterranean. The drive offers views along the way of Monaco, Nice and Villefranche, and finally deposits you in the Medieval town of Eze, sitting roughly 1,400 feet (427 meters) above the Côte d'Azur.
Enjoy some free time in picturesque Eze to browse the small shops and galleries. Learn about the art and science of making perfumes with a guided tour of the Fragonard perfumery.
Return to Monaco to continue your tour in this little principality, passing the charming town of La Turbie en route. It's called the 'Terrace of Monaco,' and is home to an ancient Roman monument called the Trophy of the Alps (Trophée des Alpes) built in the 1st century BC by Emperor Augustus.
Join your guide to watch the Changing of the Guard in front of the Prince's Palace (Palais Princier) and on a tour of the town in which the palace sits. It's sometimes called Monaco-Ville, sometimes just The Rock (Le Rocher). Enjoy some free time here to shop, take in the views or stop for lunch (own expense). Check out the great Oceanographic Museum (own expense), or pay your respects at the graves of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier in the Monaco Cathedral (Saint Nicholas Cathedral).
Back in the minivan, drive the city roads used for the Formula One Grand Prix of Monaco, one of the most famous automobile circuits in the world. Stop in Casino Square to see the grandeur of the casino itself and the glamour of its patrons. After exploring Casino Square, you're returned to your Monaco hotel and your full-day tour comes to an end.
