From Nice and Villefranche sur Mer

Whether your cruise stops in Nice or Villefranche sur Mer, I'll be delighted to take you to the most spectacular spots of the Eastern Riviera. Many stops to take amazing pictures, driving the Corniche road above the sea just like Grace Kelly and Gary Grant ("Catch a thief", 1957).
At the street farmers market in Nice you'll see the authentic local life (flowers, vegetables, fruits, olive oil, herbs, fish, honey. . . ), no market on Mondays. Eze is one of the most beautiful villages, its medieval atmosphere, little narrow streets paved with stones. La Turbie is well known for its Roman site and amazing views. Monaco/Monte Carlo and its luxury, Casino, Palace, Cathedral, Oceanographic museum (Jacques Cousteau).

The pure stunning beauty, historical up-hill villages, fantastic breathtaking views over the Mediterranean will make this cruise stop an unforgettable experience.
