What You Can Expect

Cruise to Monaco

Enjoy the open water as you cruise from Nice to Monaco

Make your own way to Nice’s harbor and climb aboard your awaiting ferry for the scenic cruise along the French Riviera to Monaco. Absorb splendid ocean views as you sail and then disembark at the world’s second smallest country approximately 45 minutes later.

Gaze at the grand and unforgettable panorama of the Port of Monaco; admire luxurious yachts bobbing in the water and relish the sight of opulent palaces perched on rocky outcrops overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. 

Customize your itinerary to include the attractions that capture your interest and set out to explore Monaco independently; please note that all refreshments and entrance fees are purchased at your own expense. Head to the Exotic Garden (Jardin Exotique) to stroll amid the botanical beauty of the verdant expanse; descend to the subterranean Grottoe de L’Observatoire to see a network of prehistoric caves; or catch a glimpse of Mediterranean marine life at Musée Océanographique, an aquarium perched on top of a cliff. 

See, too, the opulent grandeur of the Casino of Monte Carlo and the palatial façade of the Prince’s Palace before visiting a local bar or restaurant for some gourmet dishes and refreshing beverages. Reconvene with your group at a pre-arranged time and then board the ferry for the scenic return journey to Nice.

It was a wonderful cruise. The speaker was knowledgeable about the area. The crew were friendly. The boat was clean and accommodated everyone. I would definitely recommend this trip.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

A wonderful day out. Scenery on both the boat trip to Monaco and in Monaco itself was spectacular. Seeing how the other half live with Ferraris etc driving around everywhere was fun and having the opportunity to just explore for ourselves once we got there was great. As Monaco is so small there was plenty of time to take it all in. Highly recommend getting the hop on hop off bus which leaves not far from where the boat arrives to take in all the sights.
Guide on the boat was very knowledgable in showing us all the houses of the rich and famous along the Riviera coastline on the way home.

Loved the cruise. Commentary was great. Guide was so knowledgeable. Pointed out celebrities homes and gave us a great history about the area. Great price for a great way to visit Monaco. When you arrive in Monaco it's a little confusing on how to see the area. I suggest the bus tour where you can get on and off. Great way to learn about the area.
