2. Best of the French Riviera from Nice

The city of Cannes with its famous promenade which borders the sea from the point Palm Beach to the Palais des Festivals. The palace is the first mythical building along this path. A Belle Epoque treasure, the Carlton luxury hotel opened in 1912.

Erected at one end of the town, it was built between 1875 and 1884 under the direction of the architect Lenormand. Discover the famous Formula One circuit which was inaugurated in 1929 by Prince Peter of Monaco and has barely changed since ! It has become the legendary Grand Prix par excellence which all F1 racers dream of winning. At the heart of the Monte-Carlo aera, the casino is the symbol of Monegasque glamour. Its legendary success lies behind Monaco's wealth. The present building was designed by Charles Garnier in 1878 it is a Belle Epoque jewel, all around he luxury shops and legendary establishments. You will finish this tour by Antibes with its famous ramparts! What painter, what photographer could ignore the charm of these old fortifications separating the old town from the sea ? From the Saint André bastion, the promenade amiral de Grasse, which borders them as far as the port (with its spectacular pleasure yachts), is one of the most romantic walks. At the end is the boulevard d'Aiguillon ... the craftsmen's stalls are set against these old stones in summertime. An important fortified town in the past, the construction of the fortifications of Antibes went through several stages. But Vauban's contribution, in 1860, is particularly memorable. He was the great architect who also perfected another remarkable Antibes symbol: the fort carré.

What people are saying about Saint-Paul de Vence

Very Nice tour with guide Irene. The tour was provided by Liven Up. Right on time we were picked from the hotel. In the morning we visited Eze, a beautiful medieval village, and Monaco plus Monte Carlo. In the afternoon a drive to Cannes and on the way back we visited Antibes, a beautiful part of the French Riviera. In the late afternoon we arrived in St Paul, also a beautiful medieval village with a lot of art galleries. Guide Irene showed us the right spots and explained a lot of the history of the visited places. Its was a full day and there is a possibility to book 2 half day tours. It was a great full day tour (just more than 10 hours!!), all places of interest in one day. Highly recommended and also thumbs up for Irene!!

Thanks to Léo, we were able to discover mythical sites of the Côte d'Azur. This day was very interesting and allowed us to understand the history of this part of the territory. Leo was very professional and pleasant.

Great experience, a practical tour to make you fly over the interesting points of the surroundings. On the other hand, to take the time to visit, it is better to do it alone after this visit with the guide.

Nice discovery of Eze, Monaco, Saint Paul de Vence and Antibes. Our guide was a wealth of information and very friendly. The air-conditioned bus was much appreciated given the heat. A great discovery.

Superb day with an excellent passionate guide: Sabine thank you !!! ☺️
