9:00 am: Be met at the foot of your cruise ship or your hotel.
Monaco is situated on the Cote d'Azur, between Cap d'Ail and Menton, only a few kilometers from the Italian Riviera. This tiny capital (nicknamed “the Rock”) is built into the mountainside and spreads down to the shores of the Riviera. There are sumptuous boutiques with the latest fashions, palatial luxury hotels, and very chic restaurants.You can visit the Prince's Palace, which was built on the site of a 13th-century Genovese fortress. Admire the splendor of the 16th-century Italian Gallery, the Louis XV lounge, and the 17th-century Palatine Chapel. Time permitting you could also visit the Oceanographic Museum that was inaugurated by Prince Albert I in 1910. Inside you will discover an amazing collection of marine life.
Enjoy lunch at leisure in a typical restaurant in Monaco or Eze. The beach in the "baie d'Eze" is easily accessible and is shaded by pine-trees that grow down almost to the water's edge. To reach the entrance, take the small, rocky path and admire the splendid view of the gardens that surround the Château de la Chèvre d'Or. The numerous artisans’ boutiques are hard to resist. The two lookout towers at the entrance, the doorway and the gunboat are all listed as historic monuments.
During the afternoon discover the regal town of St Paul de Vence that Marc Chagall loved so much. Saint Paul de Vence is the cradle of Provence; it exudes its cultural and artistic patrimony. You might like to visit Maeght Foundation, the best of all modern-art museums in the area. Great sculptures, especially those by Miro, can be admired in a very pleasant environment.
5:00 pm: Return to your ship or to your hotel.
