Let me show you the best of the French Riviera.
The French Riviera is the eastern coast line of Provence. It starts from the Italian border by the French city of Menton and extends itself to Saint Tropez west. French Riviera is not a strictly geographical appellation so for example some people won’t include Saint Tropez and consider that the French Riviera is from Menton to Cannes.
The main cities by the coast of the French Riviera are Nice, Monaco, Cannes, Villefranche, Antibes, Saint Raphael and Saint Tropez. Some of its famous inland cities or villages are Saint Paul de Vence, Vence, Grasse or Mougins.
I can meet you anywhere you are on the French Riviera.
Whether you are staying on a cruise ship, in a hotel or in a private residence, I can pick you up at the time you desire to start our exploration.
I can provide any kind of tours for any group size from walking tours to van tours and from bus tours to yacht tours or helicopter tours.
Together we can go to Grasse UNESCO city of Perfume and explore the oldest perfume factories where you will create your own perfume.
You can also enjoy some adrenaline driving the last Ferrari car on the curvy roads down to Monaco.
And if you prefer the see let’s take a Yacht from Cannes to the Golden Coast and the Islands of Lérins.
Find below the must things to do for a perfect day trip on the French Riviera:
The French Riviera In One day
Get a taste of the entire French Riviera within a day. See the highlights of Cannes, Antibes, Nice, Villefranche, Monaco and Monte Carlo. This is the best tour for first timer on the French Riviera who want to maximize their discovery. Of course such a tour within 7 or 8 hours doesn’t allow to explore and involves short walking tours in each destination but you will see a lot from Cannes and its Film Festival Palace to Monaco and the Grimaldi Palace, Monte Carlo with its somptuous Grand Casino and Nice, the Bay of Angels, the Promenade des Anglais, the Old Nice. This tour is all along the coast of the French Riviera and the views from the coast are outstanding.
Visiting a Perfume Factory
After a short drive across the countryside we will arrive in Grasse, recently awarded the UNESCO Label for its Perfume Heritage. Perfume production started in Grasse in the middle ages and if you want to know some secrets about creating and producing a perfume this is the place to go. After a tour by the flower fields (roses, lavender, jasmin, iris…), and walking tour in the historical center, we ill explore a perfume factory and you will create your own perfume combining the different notes.
Art On The French Riviera
The sun, the light, the colors, the sceneries of the French Riviera inspired some of the best artists of all times. There are many places to explore if you love art.
Let’s start with a Picasso Tour. I always love to offer a private tour of this extraordinary museum. Then I invite you to go to Vallauris and Mougins where more about Picasso’s sculptures and photographs is waiting for you.
Why not having a tour in Saint Paul de Vence and Vence those 2 small hilltop villages are located next to each other. The must is the superb Maeght Foundation in Saint Paul de Vence whith regular collections from Giacometti, Miro, Braque, Vasarely, Chagall and always some surprising temporary exhibitions. Chagall footpath in Saint Paul de Vence is also transporting anyone to the blue sky of the French Riviera with Chagall. In Vence is a little jewel… A chapel entirely made by Matisse !
Nice, capital city of the French Riviera, is the city of major museums. Let’s start with a private tour of Matisse Museum that we can follow with the Chagall Museum. If you like modern art let’s have a tour in the MAMAC, a huge museum of modern art in the center of Nice.
Yacht Tour On The French Riviera
Let’s sail along the coast and reach pristine sandy beaches and secret creeks where there is nobody. Spending 8 hours on a yacht with a captain, a guide, food, drinks, some Champagne, snorkeling equipment is not as expensive as you may think. I can provide yachts for a party of 16 people at very cheap prices. We can start our yacht tour from all the ports of the French Riviera.
I can also organize helicopter tours, balloon flights, Ferrari or Lamborghini Tours on the French Riviera.
