Tour the beautiful city of Nice, thought to be among the oldest settlements in Europe.
Very nice excursion. It took us from the port into Nice, where we had free time to shop and walk around. We then went to Monaco, where we were also given free time to walk around. We took advantage of this opportunity to go to Monte Carlo, as it was very close. Monaco and Monte Carlo were very beautiful and extremely well kept. Nice was all right, and the people were a bit snobbish towards Americans. Tip: If asked, say you're from Canada and they'll treat you better.

First, we did a bus tour of Nice, nice town but not much to really see then on to the mountaintop medieval village at Ste. Paul de Vence. Many photo opportunities in this postcard town. Shops were nice - mostly artistic, vendors friendly and prices were moderate to high. Lots of narrow streets and alleys to explore and photograph. Some walking but not too strenuous. I would recommend.

We meet other cruisers on roll call and book all our own tours for the rest of these port reviews. This tour was great with Michel at French Riviera Sightseeing. As we toured we saw Eze, Monaco/Monte-Carlo, Antibes, and St. Paul De Vence. We had a tour van of 8, and the price was reasonable (less that half of the cruise line charge for same tour route), and we could stop anywhere we wanted to on the way! It did rain all day, but the sights were still amazing!
