ShoreTrips says...

Beginning in Monaco, drive along the coast to Villefranche Bay and Saint Jean Cap Ferrat (known as the the "French Beverly Hills") for a spectacular day of artistic sightseeing!

Your tour begins with a visit to the Ephrussi de Rothschild Museum. Your driver, who will also serve as your knowledgeable guide for the day, will give you a brief history of the museum and estate before letting you loose to wander about on your own. Soak up the history of the estate as you enjoy the gardens and the panoramic view that overlooks the sea on both sides of the peninsula.

You will continue on your drive through the city to the Cimiez Hill, which was the winter residence of Queen Victoria.

Your next stop will be at the famous Chagall Museum, which you will have 45 minutes to explore. Here you will be able to see both permanent and temporary exhibitions of the artist, including paintings, drawings, and engravings.

Finally, you are on to the Matisse Museum. Kept safe in an Italian house from the 17th century, here you will find the personal collection of Matisse himself, who lived in Nice from 1917 to 1954. These paintings, drawings, and engravings offer a broad and wonderful presentation of the artist's work.
