Get to Monaco the easy and scenic way, on a cruise along the French Riviera! From Nice, enjoy a relaxing 45-minute ferry ride along the Mediterranean coast to the glitzy, glamorous principality of Monaco, where you’ll have all day to spend at your leisure. Wander the yacht-filled harbor and luxurious city center, and visit top Monaco attractions such as the Prince's Palace, the Casino of Monte Carlo and the Oceanographic Museum — your itinerary is up to you. At the end of the day, hop on the ferry and cruise back to Nice.
Head to Nice Harbor in the morning to board your ferry. Relax as you cruise from Nice along the stunning French Riviera, arriving in the principality of Monaco — the second-smallest country in the world, behind the Vatican — about 45 minutes later.

The Port of Monaco offers a grand and unforgettable panorama: luxury yachts bobbing in the harbor, palaces clinging to a rocky outcrop overlooking the Mediterranean, and a mix of ancient and ultra-modern architecture in the lively city center.

The whole day is yours to spend as you please. There is no guide, so you can enjoy the flexibility to create your own itinerary and explore at your own pace. Soak up Monaco’s glamor and extravagance as you stroll around the harbor and wander down streets lined with buzzing cafes and chic boutiques. Then make your way to Monaco’s famous attractions.

Get a glimpse into royal life at the Prince’s Palace (Palais du Prince) or watch the dramatic poker-faced gamble in the grand marble-and-gold Casino of Monte Carlo. Nature lovers can visit the cliff-top Oceanographic Museum (Musée Océanographique de Monaco) for a glimpse at the sea creatures of the Mediterranean. Visit the rooftop terrace for sweeping views of Monaco and the sea beyond.

Head to the Exotic Garden (Jardin Exotique) to see the world’s largest succulent and cactus collection and tour the prehistoric underground caves (Grottes de l’Observatoire). Back above ground, rub shoulders with locals at Monaco’s only microbrewery, the Brasserie de Monaco, where you can enjoy craft ales and lagers with tasty antipasti plates (happy hour usually starts at 5pm).

At the end of your day in Monaco, board the ferry and cruise 45 minutes along the coast back to Nice.

Great tour. Really enjoyed the fast boat. The commentary was fun. Ran on time. Bit of a bun fight to get on the boat.
