day 02 Eze-Monaco-Monte Carlo

08.45 The village of Eze has within its labyrinthine streets, many shops and crafts. Atop the village you can find a ruined castle along an exotic garden with amazing views on the coast. You will have some free time to visit this typical medieval village. Walk along the narrow lanes, appreciate the beauty of stone buildings and venture into the local shops. Eze clings to the cliffs over 1000 feet above the sea. Try and walk to the top to enjoy an amazing view point from the garden - entrance fee not included. You will then enjoy a free guided visit of the famous perfume factory “Fragonard”. A few minute drive on the low ‘corniche’ road will get you to Monaco. Monaco is a constitutional monarchy and a city state of only 2km². It is owned by the Grimaldi family which has reigned almost without interruption since the 13th century. Discover the old Monaco, the Cathedral and the changing of the guards. Your first stop is the old town of Monaco. There you will have a chance to see the changing of the guards in front of the Prince’s palace (at noon) and the cathedral where Princess Grace is buried. Enjoy a walk on the tiny streets to do some souvenir shopping during your free time. You will then drive on the legendary F1 Grand prix track onto the casino square. Enjoy a stop in the heart of the Monegasque luxury! Admire unique sports cars, designer shops, luxury hotels and the famous Casino of Monte Carlo.

day 03 Antibes-Cannes-Saint Paul de Vence

In the morning at 08.45, you will be picked up at your hotel to head towards Antibes. The town was founded in Roman time (and was a former military garrison) and fell into the hands of the Grimaldi family for a long time. The traditional fishing town then evolved to see its port becoming known as the "billionaires’ quay”: enjoy some free time along it and see the largest and wildest yachts in the world. The medieval old town and its fortifications (16th century) offer a wonderful view over the Bay of Nice and a traditional Provençal covered market. Next to it, the Château Grimaldi houses the Picasso museum which used to be the studio of the famous artist. Next you will drive on to Cannes along the coastline through the Cap d’Antibes (one of the most exclusive area of the Riviera). Beyond the stir of international conventions and congresses, comes the thrill of holidaymakers dreaming of Monaco, the Film Festival city, the red carpet and the famous Croisette boulevard where many starts have left their mark. Enjoy the view of 5 star hotels, designer shops and soak into the "Hollywood" atmosphere of the Croisette before taking your picture up the famous steps of the Film Festival place. You will then drive on the toll road to reach the famous Provençal hilltop village of Saint Paul de Vence. In the early 1920’s artists started discovering Saint Paul. Painters were forerunners who found an incomparable richness and intensity of light in the peaceful Provençal village. Famous artists such as Paul Signac, Raoul Dufy ou Chaïm Soutine will be later joined by Henri Matisse or Pablo Picasso. The 1950’s and 1960’s represent the golden age of the village which turns into an amazing film set on which could be seen many French and international stars. This village is nowadays a renowned center of arts whether modern, contemporary, naïf and abstract. You will find the streets to be an open museum where artists such as Folon, César, Niky de Saint-Phalle have their works displayed in the windows of the galleries. You will have free time to walk along the main street where souvenir shops alternate with art galleries. Why not hop onto a ‘crêpe’ or ice-cream along the way. Do not miss a walk along the ramparts which offers a beautiful view upon the surrounding valley and the coast.
