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!

Your tour begins with a visit to the Villa 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 gardens with different themes, such as French and Japanese, enjoy water displays synchronized to music, and take in the panoramic views that overlook the sea on both sides of the peninsula.

You will continue on your drive through the city to Cimiez Hill, which was the winter residence of Queen Victoria and is home 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. You will also find an interesting presentation on Matisse's advanced research in the fields of color and graphics.

Your next stop will be at the famous Chagall Museum, which you will have 45 minutes to explore. This modernist artist produced works in a wide range of styles and here you will be able to see both permanent and temporary exhibitions of his works, including drawings, engravings, and paintings.
