ShoreTrips says...

If you have a problem with those crowded, big bus tours operated by the cruise lines and you're a little thrifty, here's the perfect tour for you. Visit the best of the French Riviera along with a few others in a very comfortable van driven by an experienced, personable driver for just about what the big bus tours cost. And since it's a ShoreTrips tour, you know it's first class!

Although Monaco will be your focus for the day it would be silly to rush you straight to Casino Square. To prevent any sort of injustice, your adventure will begin in Eze, which many believe to be the most charming village along the French Riviera. Often referred to as the "Eagle Nest" Eze is perched on top of a mountain overlooking the sea, providing you the best views along the coast. With its perfumeries as famous as its views, your time spent at the famous Fragonard work shop will perfectly capture another one of your senses.

Next, continue on to La Turbie, a 1st century BC Roman village well-known as the "Terrace" of Monaco due to the splendid view it affords of the Principality. At the Trophy of the Alps you will be able to soak in this beautiful vantage point while honoring emperor Augustus who captured this land for the Roman Empire in 7 BC.

Once in Monaco you will cover everything this world famous location has to offer. Start by discovering Casino Square while eyeing up the endless luxury shops and cars that cover the streets. Follow the Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit all the way to the old town for free time on "The Rock" which was a coveted landmark for conquering dynasties hundreds of years ago. Stroll the tiny streets before making your way back to the Prince's Palace where, if lucky, you will be able to witness the changing of the guards. Monaco represents the perfect combination of history and glamour that packs a punch as the second smallest country in the world!

As you look around Monaco please don't dwell on the fact that no residents pay income tax.
