After your ship arrives in the port of Monaco, begin your full-day shore excursion when you meet your guide for pickup at the cruise terminal. Climb aboard a comfortable 8-person minibus and begin the drive up into the hills over the Mediterranean Sea.
The roads leading up to Eze, a Medieval hilltop town, offer great views – and the views get even better when you finally reach Eze. Poke around in the village's many small shops and galleries. Go on a guided tour of the Fragonard perfumery to learn about the art and science involved in making high-end scents.
Drive back down the hills toward Monaco, passing the charming town of La Turbie on the way. It's often called the 'Terrace of Monaco,' and it's home to an ancient Roman ruin called the Trophy of the Alps (Trophée des Alpes) that was built by Emperor Augustus in the 1st century BC.
Back in Monaco, join your guide on a sightseeing tour of the principality's top attractions. For such a small country – the second-smallest on earth – it's packed with luxury. Admire grand hotels, chic shops and the many multi-million dollar yachts that float in the harbor.
Witness the Changing of the Guard in front of the Prince's Palace (Palais Princier) and explore the surrounding area of Monaco-Ville (sometimes called 'The Rock,' or 'Le Rocher') on your own. Take a break here for lunch (own expense). Visit the Oceanographic Museum (own expense) or the graves of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier in the Monaco Cathedral (Saint Nicholas Cathedral).
Drive along the road that serves as the Formula One Grand Prix racing circuit before stopping in Casino Square for a stroll. Check out the opulent casinos and gorgeous surroundings. After your visit to Casino Square, you're returned to the cruise terminal and your tour comes to an end.
