Small-Group Monaco and Eze Full-Day Tour
This picturesque medieval village is known for its traditional perfumery, Fragonard. Take a guided tour of Fragonard to learn about the process of perfume-making, an exquisite French art, and enjoy browsing its charming artisan shops along the way.
On your journey back to Monaco, drive through the village of La Turbie, known as the 'Terrace of Monaco.' See the Trophy of the Alps (Trophée des Alpes), an impressive Roman monument built by Emperor Augustus 2,000 years ago.
Arrive back in Monaco for a sightseeing tour. This glitzy principality – technically the second-smallest country in the world behind the Vatican – will enchant you with its beguiling ambiance, chic boutiques, yacht-filled harbor and typical Mediterranean landscape.
Exploring Monaco, your guide will take you to the Changing of the Guard ceremony at Prince’s Palace (Palais Princier) and through the surrounding medieval village of Monaco-Ville, also known as ‘Le Rocher’ or ‘The Rock.’ Here, you’ll have some free time to have lunch on your own and enjoy sweeping views over the Monaco Port, Monte Carlo and the sparkling sea in the distance.
Visit the Oceanographic Museum (own expense) and see the historic Monaco Cathedral (sometimes referred to as the Saint Nicholas Cathedral), the resting place of Prince Rainier and Princess Grace featuring fine Roman-Byzantine architecture.
Next, cruise down the Circuit de Monaco, the street used as the racetrack in the world-famous Formula One Grand Prix race. Take a stroll around Casino Square and make a photo stop outside of the Casino of Monte Carlo, facing the Hotel de Paris, Café de Paris and numerous deluxe boutiques.
After your time in Casino Square, you’ll be taken back to your hotel to conclude your full-day tour.

This company is NOT recommended. Do not book with them if you want to do a tour. We did not get our tour we purchased. Use another tour operator.
We had a friend ill in the ship hospital and did not get any help refunding her portion with any of the trips planned through Viator even though we attempted to email and call in advance. This tour of Eze was mostly a perfume factory tour.....which would not have been our choice. We did not get to see the shops at Eze because of the time spent selling us local perfume and lotion! We would have customized a trip there much differently. The guide was pleasant and accommodating but the day was lackluster overall. This local company waited on the last two people in our group and called to check on them rather than leaving them behind. Liven Up is an excellent local company but we still would have preferred to have a direct number to our guide.
Had a wonderful experience in Monaco. Tour was very inclusive and varied. Our guide Thierry was exceptional with knowledge and language. He was very courteous, and obliging in every way. He took us from the Marinas to the mountains to the Pink Palace, to markets. We felt we knew Monaco a whole lot better after our day with him. He even waited patiently while we were in the perfume factory, which was a highlight for us, also EZE, so ancient and beautiful. Many, many thanks for a very memorable day. Would recommend Thierry to everyone. Glenda and Jan
This was a great tour! There were only three of us and our guide Luic was able to tailor the trip to meet our interests. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We saw quite a bit during the day and hit all of the highlights of Monaco. I especially enjoyed exploring Eze and the view from the very top of the hill. This trip was a great way to see a lot in a single day!
