Silversea Luxury Cruises To MONTE CARLO (Grand Prix)

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Monte-Carlo Grand-Prix

The independent principality of Monaco is famous as the playground of the Côte d’Azur. With nice beaches, elegant hotels and a vibrant nightlife, this tiny domain is a favorite haunt of the jet set. In the possession of the Grimaldi family for more than 700 years, a treaty with France guarantees Monaco’s independence as long as the principality is governed by the Grimaldis. View more

The fashionable enclave numbers only about 32,000 inhabitants and is smaller than New York’s Central Park, but it boasts some of the most expensive real estate in the world. In addition to its luxury hotels and beautiful beaches, Monaco is noted for its mild climate and magnificent scenery. Once an exclusive wintering stop for Europe’s aristocracy, today there are more than five million visitors annually. Of the principality’s four sections - La Condamine, Fontvieille, Monaco-Ville and Monte Carlo, the latter two rank highest on every visitor’s must-see list. In Monte Carlo, the Grand Casino is perhaps Monaco's most outstanding attraction. For more than a century, the principality's livelihood was centered beneath the copper roof of this splendid establishment. The resemblance to the Paris Opera House is less than accidental since they share the same architect, Charles Garnier. Also facing the square are the famed Hotel de Paris and the more modest Café de Paris.

Nice & Eze

Leave the hustle and bustle of Monaco behind during this picturesque coach and walking tour of Nice and Eze. The tiny village of Eze is one of the jewels of the south of France which is probably why it is chosen as a holiday spot by royalty, the rich and the famous. The deep blue waters of the Cote d'Azur are the dramatic backdrop for elegant Nice where you can get an eagle eye of the whole city from atop Castle Hill; view the pedestrians-only Place Rossetti in the heart of the city, with a grand fountain, vibrant buildings, and the beautiful Sainte-Réparate Cathedral giving it a provincial French feel.

Depart from Fontvieille landing pier on foot with your guide to reach approx 500 m the pick up point assigned for the coaches due to Grand Prix.


Eze

Upon arrival, walk up to and through the 14th-century double gateway. A sentry walk leads into the steep and narrow streets, passageways and stairways. At times, the streets run beneath the carefully-restored houses that now serve as smart boutiques or artists' studios.


Nice

After a little free time to explore the village on your own, drive to Nice, the capital of the French Riviera, along the "Promenade des Anglais", a splendid palm-lined boulevard stretching along the Baie des Anges. You will pass landmarks like the legendary Negresco, an imposing hotel with its Belle Epoque façade. See the Russian Orthodox Cathedral, built with pink bricks, light gray marble and vivid colour ceramics, all sitting beneath six onion shaped domes that lend an exotic touch to the Nice landscape.


Next, visit the Old City, where tall houses tightly-packed across narrow streets are often festooned with bright flowers or hanging laundry, and designed to provide shade and keep the streets cool during the long, hot summers. A stop is made for a leisurely stroll along the Cours Saleya, the elegant promenade of Old Nice, which is now lined with shops, restaurants and the famous Flower Market.


Following your visit and some free time; re-board your coach for the scenic return drive to Monte Carlo.



Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking, at times on hills and cobblestone streets, and is not recommended for guests with limited mobility and guests in wheelchair. During the GP week-end, due to extreme traffic and parking limitations, there may be a 10 to 20 minute guided walk to the coach parking location. The order of the stops can vary according to the traffic on this special week-end. A minimum number of guests per guide are required to operate this programme. Local currency is required for restroom facilities.

Riviera Corniches

Experience the exquisite beauty of the French Riviera during this picturesque sightseeing drive through the Grande, Middle, and Lower Corniches. Between Nice and Menton the pine-forested Alpes drop precipitously to the sea, creating one of the most dramatic and inspiring views in Europe. Carved into the mountainside are three roads known as the Corniches.


Depart the pier via coach for a scenic sightseeing drive through the French Riviera.


La Turbie

Your journey begins on the Grande Corniche, which offers marvelous vistas extending as far as Italy. A stop is then made at the village of La Turbie. Located at an altitude of 1,575 feet (473 metres), the village offers splendid panoramic views of the coast and Monaco.


Eze

After a brief photo stop at La Turbie, continue along the Middle, or 'Moyenne' Corniche for scenic views that extend to the north and village of Eze, where a comfort stop is made before continuing on to Nice. En route, admire stunning views of Beaulieu, Cap Ferrat and Villefranche.


Nice

Upon arrival in Nice, take a brief orientation tour along the Promenade des Anglais and past some of the town's beautiful squares. Following your orientation tour, continue on with the return drive to Monte Carlo via the Corniche Inférieure, or Lower Corniche, which runs along the foot of the mountain slopes and follows the coastal road.


Take in splendid vistas of picturesque Villefranche and a charming fishing village en route to the ship.



Please note: This tour requires a minimal amount of walking and is suitable for guests with limited mobility and those who utilise a wheelchair, able to embark/disembark the coach without assistance; Eze would not be suitable for these guests. The tour sequence may vary. Local currency is required for restroom facilities.
