Menton, Roquebrune, Monaco & Monte-Carlo with a private guide
The Principality of Monaco is much more than what people believe.
Beyond the exclusive resort for an international jet set, it's a fascinating story, an epic!
Let our guide tell you the history of the only nation in the world founded by a single family, the Grimaldi, and spend a day in the last example of a European city state.
To appreciate the "authentic" Monaco, you must understand how an isolated perched village became, through the centuries, a prosperous country which attracts the largest fortunes of the world. For that, we'll take you to Menton, the gorgeous "pearl of France" and to Roquebrune, a typical medieval village with the oldest castle in France, both were part of Monaco up to 1848, both equally splendid.
You will then discover the second smallest country in the world with a different perspective.
Visit Monte-Carlo and its famous casino, the historic town perched on "the Rock", the antique port Hercules, the Larvotto seaside and its Japanese's garden, the F1 Grand prix track. . .

We wanted a comprehensive survey of the Riviera, so we asked Michel to guide us for 3 days of touring -- Nice and central area, eastern area, and western area. (This was Day 2.) Michel provided exactly what we wanted. He has a superb knowledge of the history of each location. He knows where the best views can be enjoyed, where to stroll to best experience the culture of each village, and which restaurant to go to for an elegant and picturesque lunch. Michel is an excellent guide -- truly 5 stars.
