Glamour, ruins, culture, history, and much more on a fun-filled full day! See the medieval town of Eze, the Roman ruins at La Turbie, and the ultra-luxurious Monte Carlo on your guided excursion. You'll also have plenty of free time to explore on your own...no rushing. For those guests looking for a quicker-paced excursion without free time, please see Villefranche to Eze, La Turbie, and Monte Carlo Excursion.

After tendering to shore in the charming port of Villefranche, you will meet your driver/guide and take a short walk uphill to the parking area. In an exclusive group of no more than eight guests, you will depart Villefranche, weaving through the curving hillside roads to reach the Medieval hilltop town of Eze, approximately 30 minutes away. Here, you will have approximately 30 minutes to take photos of the town, browse the shops at the base, or for the energetic, climb up into the medieval town. Those making the climb along the winding pedestrian streets will find amazing panoramic views of the Mediterranean coast including the exclusive Cap Ferrat below.

Following your free time in Eze, there will be a short visit to 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. You will have a short guided visit and the staff on hand will explain how to choose a fragrance that is right for you.

Your transportation will continue through the hills, along the Middle Corniche, to the hillside village of La Turbie. You will stop for a photo overlooking the town and the ruins of the 6th century BC, Tropaeum Alpium, (Trophy of the Alps) 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.

A quick drive up and over the hill brings you to the French Riviera's glittery gem, the principality of Monaco. The first stop will be the Rock, known for the spectacular lookout over the rest of the city. Next, you will have an exterior visit of the Royal Prince Palace. If your excursion time allows, you might have the chance to see the changing of the guard takes place daily at 11:55 AM. A short walk away is the Cathedral, the final resting place of Prince Rainier and his Princess Grace.

You will then have two hours and 30 minutes of free time to explore, view the megayacht closer, purchase lunch on your own, shop at the numerous designer shops or possibly visit the Oceanographic Museum or other museums (all at extra cost). Your guide can make suggestions if you need them.

At the appointed time, rejoin your driver at the transportation for a quick drive over to the famous Casino Square. There will be time for a quick photo of the exterior of the Monte Carlo Casino, the Hotel de Paris, or the Cafe de Paris. Be sure to admire the endless lineup of exotic and ultra-luxurious cars parked in front of them.

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

Exceeded expectations!

I booked this full day with Shore Excursioneer. The guide was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information on all the places we visited. We had a lovely day which included a picnic in a park during our free time, the guide make sure that we saw as much of this lovely region as we were able. I would not hesitate to use Shore Excursioneer again.

We are always looking for something different to do in each port, we decided to do the full day, as our ship was leaving late that day. The meeting location was very convenient, the guide was there waiting for us. The transportation is very comfortable. We all enjoyed the trip to Eze although my favorite stop was at the Fragonard perfume factory. My husband works as a teacher so he loved the history of Tropaeum Alpium. We got a lot of nice photos. Also, in the free time, we got lunch and I got more souvenirs, I had so much fun on this day!

Had a wonderful experience. This tour was excellent and the best of our entire vacation! my favorite part was definitely Monaco. Getting to see the places you have only seen in movies and on TV is amazing.

Originally I booked a tour with the ship directly, but then I canceled it as it was too expensive. I found this option a couple of weeks prior to us leaving the states. I did not have super high expectations as this was a last minute booking and did not even bother looking up the company prior to arrival. But can I just say that I was impressed with our tour and tour guide He was very knowledgeable and accommodating. He was a pleasure to be around and made sure to pack in as much as possible. We were able to see many amazing places and sites on this tour. I would highly recommend this tour company. At the end we visited the Casino Square, the guide explained that it has been featured on multiple "James Bond" movies and is perhaps the most iconic building in Monte Carlo. This tour is definitely the best way to get around!

Loved it!

We chose this excursion for the time allowed in Monte Carlo, which was the highlight of our trip. The first hour or so was guided, where we went to the Royal Prince Palace and the Cathedral. It is so luxurious with many flowers adorning it. For our free time, we did our research and also took some of our guide's recommendations. Just being there and admiring the clean streets, fancy cars and landscape was perfect. We visited the Le Metropole Shopping Center. Such fancy mall with high fashion label stores, and just has a little bit of everything. It's 3 stories high with beautiful chandeliers. For the final portion of the tour we all waited at the assigned meeting point to head over to the Monte Carlo Casino. You see this casino on t.v and movies but being there is completely different. What most amazed us were the fancy cars. After that we were taken back to our ship terminal right on time to catch our tender ready for our next port.
