Customized Full Day By Van In French RivieraExplore > France > Cannes > Customized Full Day By Van In French Riviera
An amazing day chosen by you and your driver.
This full day trip will deliver the best of the French Riviera to you in the best possible way. Your private driver will meet you at the meeting place, whether your hotel or cruise ship, and begin with a drive along the lower coastal road. After that the trip is up to you, but these are some of our ideas...
This tour includes:
• Private, round trip transportation in a van with a licensed guide
• An amazing day of touring!
A flexible, full day itinerary that may include visits to the following:
• St. Paul Vence
• La Turbie
• Monte Carlo
Perhaps you'd like to begin your day by spending some time in Cannes, where you'll experience the home of the Cannes Film Festival for yourself. Drive through the city, including the old town and some great views. Check out the perpetually busy Croisette Boulevard, the nicest hotels and beaches, and, if you want, make a stop at the Film Festival Palace--feel like a star as you take a walk up the famous steps!
Next, you may choose to make your way to Nice, where you can stop in to see the market and try the famous socca (a delicious brick-oven-baked pancake of chickpea flour and olive oil), or visit the Chagall and Matisse museums.
Afterwards, enjoy a short ride out of town as you journey to two favorite villages--St. Paul de Vence and Vence. In the first, you may want to see the Foundation Maeght, an incredible museum that reflects the contemporary artists who live and work in this area. St. Paul de Vence is also famous for the many craftsmen and studios that line the paths of the old village. Or you may prefer to see Vence first, as it has some talented artists. These may be artists who paint, sculpt, or whose products are the most wonderful food and pastry!
Now, we'll travel back to Nice to spend whatever time is left to see the city and then head out on the mid-road, traveling through Eze as we head for our stop in La Turbie. View Monte Carlo from above and the remains of a stirring Roman ruin from below.
Or, you may decide you would like to make your way to Antibes, a former Greek and Roman town, and an active trading port in the Mediterranean. Drive through the old city, passing along the ramparts of the Era of Louis XIV, to reach Port Vauban, the largest marina in Europe, and Fort Carré, a 16th century fortress once used to imprison Napoléon, and now used as a sports and youth center by the city of Antibes.
