  • See the Medieval hilltop town of Eze and enjoy an introduction to perfume!
  • See ancient Roman ruins!
  • Visit the Rock of Monte Carlo and stop for photos in Casino Square!

Get the most out of your half day excursion - see the top highlights Medieval Eze, La Turbie, Monaco and Monte Carlo. This is a fast-paced excursion to see the sites. For those guests wishing to have a slower paced excursion and free time to explore the sites, please see Villefranche Full Day Eze and Monte Carlo Excursion.

After tendering to shore in the charming port of Villefranche, you will meet your driver/guide and make a short walk uphill to the parking area where your air-conditioned transportation is waiting. This is a small group excursion with a maximum of only 8 participants. You will depart Villefranche, weaving through the curving hillside roads to reach the Medieval hilltop town of Eze, approximately 30 minutes away. The views are great with a panoramic overlook for the Mediterranean. You will have approximately 30 minutes browse the town, wander the shops at the base, or for the energetic, climb up into the medieval town for the most spectacular photo ops including Cap Ferrat.

You will then meet up for a short visit is made at the nearby Fragonard perfume, soap, and cosmetics factory. The company began making perfumes in 1926, in the nearby town of Grasse, and now the family business is under the eye of the third generation. There will be a short guided visit and staff on hand will explain how to choose a fragrance that is right for you. Browse, shop or just enjoy the scents.

You route along Middle Corniche will take you to the hillside village of La Turbie. You will stop for a photo overlooking the town and the ruins of the 6th century BC, Trophy of the Alps (Tropaeum Alpium), erected by Roman Emperor Augustus to celebrate a victory. Many former pieces of the Trophy are now part of the homes and buildings that surround it.

The real jewel of the French Riviera lies up and over the hill - the principality of Monaco and the glitzy Monte Carlo. Your first stop here will be the Rock, a rocky outcrop where you will have an exterior visit of the Royal Prince Palace. You might get to see the changing of the guard that takes place at 11:55 AM daily. The Cathedral is a short walk away where those wishing can see the final resting place of both Prince Rainier and his Princess Grace.

Your transportation will then take you for a quick drive over to the Casino Square. You will have the opportunity for a quick photo of the exterior of the casino with the endless lineup of exotic and luxury cars lined up in front, the Hotel de Paris, and the Cafe de Paris.

Departing the casino hill, your driver will follow a portion of the Monte Carlo Grand Prix circuit before departing Monaco for the approximately 30-minute drive back to the tender pier in Villefranche.

WE VISIT DIFFERENT PORTS OF CALL DURING OUR CRUISE SHIP, THIS PORT WAS MY FAVORITE NOT ONLY BECAUSE WE CHOOSE THIS EXCURSION WHICH ALLOWS US TO VISIT DIFFERENT PLACES IN SUCH A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME BUT BECAUSE IT WAS DEFINITELY WORTH IT. THE GUIDE WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE, MY FAMILY AND I ENJOYED THIS TRIP A LOT. MY DAUGHTER FAVORITE SPOT WAS THE CASINO SQUARE, SHE TOOK GREAT PHOTOS!

We did with excursion back in May, we thought since the excursion is 4 hours we won't be able to enjoy the port, however, we never felt hurried and had a wonderful experience. The guide provided great information but was casual and interesting. They were beyond fantastic! I can wait to do this excursion again, we will bring more friends next time.

There were 4 in our group and we arrive in via cruise ship. I had made arrangements via email and all my queries were promptly answered and payment was made online. We were met at the appointed time by our guide. He was excellent providing us with information and details of the surrounding areas and our visit to La turbie and Monte Carlo. The vehicle was new, clean & very comfortable. We felt as if we were being taken out on a day trip by a dear friend instead of a guide. If you're looking for a reliable and good tour company. I highly recommend Shore Excursioneer.

Fun trip from Nice to Monaco and return, the village of Eze was a trip back in time. The Royal Prince Palace at Monaco was amazing and really like being in a movie. The trip was well organized with pickup from our tender pier. Our guide was well presented, very familiar with the area, and made the trip fun and enjoyable. Definitely, recommend this half day trip.

We decided to book this excursion, as the one offer on the ship was extremely expensive. We started our day by meeting our guide outside the terminal, was very easy to recognize him as he was holding a sign with my name. We boarded the transportation with our small group of just 4. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun. Our first stop was Eze where the views were outstanding! Then they took us to the Fragonard perfume factory (my favorite stop and I wanted to buy everything). Then we visit La Turbie and Monaco where my son created a game of counting the Lamborghinis and Ferraris he saw in Monaco. We definitely recommend this, even with children (but maybe take snacks in case you don't want to use any of your "free time" to stop and eat).

I can say this port was definitely my favorite! I am from the USA and we always go to the Caribbean but this time, we decided to go in a different route. I was kind of worried about booking an excursion with a third party company, but this tour exceeds my expectations! Very easy to find our guide and he was waiting for us on the tender pier shoreside in Villefranche. The guide was very personable and welcoming from the start. It was clear that he loves his job and he loves the area. We visit the Medieval hilltop town of Eze, Rock of Monte Carlo and stop for photos in Casino Square! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.

Wonderful from cruise pick up to drop off! An informative, small group...enough personal time at each stop. Perfect short day! I really enjoyed the stop we made to Trophy of the Alps (Tropaeum Alpium). I highly recommend this to all.

IT WAS A QUICK DRIVE TO ALL THE TOWNS WHICH ALLOWED US TO REALLY TAKE IN THE VIEWS OF EACH LOCATION. EZE WAS MY FAVORITE. I JUST LOVE TOWNS THAT ARE HILLTOP, THE SCENERY IS JUST PHENOMENAL. WISH WE COULD HAVE STAYED HERE LONGER. THE VISIT TO THE FRAGONARD PERFUMERIE WAS ALSO MY FAVORITE. FRANCE HAS SOME OF THE MOST EXQUISITE PERFUMES. I DIDNT MISS THE OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE MINITUARE SETS, TO BRING BACK AS SOUVENIERS. WE CONTINUED OUR TOUR TO THE NEXT TOWN, LA TURBIE, WHICH WAS ONLY 10 MINUTES AWAY. ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL VILLAGE WITH MEDIEVAL ARQUITECTURE. THE LAST TOWN WAS MONTE CARLO. THIS TOWN IS MORE DEVELOPED AND HAS MORE MODERN BUILDINGS BUT HAS THAT FRENCH CHARM. THIS IS WHERE THE GRAND PRIX IS HOSTED. PREPARATIONS WERE IN EFFECT SINCE IT WAS A MONTH AWAY, AND WE WERE TOLD THAT SOME TOURS ARE UNAVAILABLE DUE TO THIS SO WE WERE GLAD WE WERE ABLE TO VISIT BEFORE THE MADNESS BEGAN! IT WAS IMPRESSIVE TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TOWNS. IN MONTE CARLO THERE ARE LUXURIOUS YACHTS DOCKED AND FANCY CARS. JAMES BONDS FILMS WERE FILMED ON THE CASINO WHICH WE ALSO VISITED. THIS TOUR ALLOWED US TO SEE AND COMPARE THESE TOWNS IN A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME, AND WE REALLY ENJOY.

Very nice excursion but not suitable for those who aren't used to lots of walking. I'll be honest that I wasn't prepared for so much walking (I should have read the description as it is clearly stated!), other than that it was a great excursion, landscapes taken out of a movie! I just took the pace slower which in a small group it was much easier. The highlight of the day was seeing Monte Carlo. My husband, a car buff, was practically drooling over the cars in front of the casino especially the 3 Bugatti ultra luxury cars parked side by side. At close to 3/4 of a million dollars each, one can dream! Eze was also just incredible with some of the most amazing views. It was like stepping back in time. France definitely has many beautiful towns and sites to see and I think we saw the best.
