We loved St. Paul de Venice when we were there several years ago in July. It is still beautiful, however, since we were traveling in December many of the lovely shops and restaurants were closed...very disappointing. It happened to be a nice sunny day so, we did get to go to a small outside restaurant that overlooked the rooftops and had a nice lunch. Overall, very disappointed that it was not mentioned. That many of the shops would be closed before we booked this excursion. Read Less

I really enjoyed this tour. The guide was excellent and the village is seriously pretty. It took about 1.5 hours to get there. We drove through Villefranche and Nice, so we got to see some of those places, too. When you get to the village, there are bathrooms in the bus parking lot. We had a 30 min guided walking tour of the town and then 1.5 hours of free time. You really can’t get lost in the village itself because there is only one way in and out, but make sure you understand how to reverse the walk (which takes 10-15 min) between the bus parking lot and the village. The village itself is gorgeous, with lots of nice shops and art galleries and restaurants. The streets have pretty patterns in the cobblestones. On the drive back we went a different way, which was a little shorter, so it was nice to have different scenery on the way back. Beautiful village, well worth seeing. Read Less

There is a great deal of climbing. But well worth it. We ate at a local restaurant with the French Alps as a backdrop.

We would have preferred more time in St. Paul de Vence than was allowed or scheduled, we felt rushed in spite of this being the one rainy day during our cruise. We had two guides and one we found difficult to understand her English. The ... Read More
We would have preferred more time in St. Paul de Vence than was allowed or scheduled, we felt rushed in spite of this being the one rainy day during our cruise. We had two guides and one we found difficult to understand her English. The tour bus left us off blocks away from the tender dock, where we were to be transported to the Legend. The tender proved a bit difficult for some of us to manage with the current and somewhat stormy day. Read Less

This was a lovely medieval city on a hilltop with gorgeous views and great artwork and shops. The bus ride thru Nice was fun too. Highly recommend it as Monaco doesn't offer a lot unless one wants to go to the Casino or the Aquarium. It's a very hilly city so can be difficult walking. The hop on/off busses were so full, many passengers told us they had to wait to board one and even then it was too crowded. Read Less

My wife and I had visited on a previous trip to France and she fell in love with this charming little town. Since we had been before, we left the tour early and did the town on our own.
