Know More about this tour

Head to Nice Harbor in the morning to board your ferry. Relax as you cruise from Nice along the stunning French Riviera, arriving in the principality of Monaco the second-smallest country in the world, behind the Vatican about 45 minutes later.

The Port of Monaco offers a grand and unforgettable panorama: luxury yachts bobbing in the harbor, palaces clinging to a rocky outcrop overlooking the Mediterranean, and a mix of ancient and ultra-modern architecture in the lively city center.

The whole day is yours to spend as you please. There is no guide, so you can enjoy the flexibility to create your own itinerary and explore at your own pace. Soak up Monacos glamor and extravagance as you stroll around the harbor and wander down streets lined with buzzing cafes and chic boutiques. Then make your way to Monacos famous attractions.

Get a glimpse into royal life at the Princes Palace (Palais du Prince) or watch the dramatic poker-faced gamble in the grand marble-and-gold Casino of Monte Carlo. Nature lovers can visit the cliff-top Oceanographic Museum (Muse Ocanographique de Monaco) for a glimpse at the sea creatures of the Mediterranean. Visit the rooftop terrace for sweeping views of Monaco and the sea beyond.

Head to the Exotic Garden (Jardin Exotique) to see the worlds largest succulent and cactus collection and tour the prehistoric underground caves (Grottes de lObservatoire). Back above ground, rub shoulders with locals at Monacos only microbrewery, the Brasserie de Monaco, where you can enjoy craft ales and lagers with tasty antipasti plates (happy hour usually starts at 5pm).

At the end of your day in Monaco, board the ferry and cruise 45 minutes along the coast back to Nice.

  • The boat trip was very nice. Monaco itself was kind of boring. If I was to do an excursion again I would Likely cross the border into Italy and see the Roman ruins.

  • We enjoyed this cruise and found it a great way to enjoy the views along the coastline. It offered the perfect amount of time
    to explore Monaco on our own. The captain and the guide were knowledgeable and accommodating. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because we had a difficult time hearing the tour guide. It could have been a result of us opting to sit in the back of the boat rather than inside or up above. I would recommend this cruise. What a great way to get to Monaco!

  • A wonderful day out. Scenery on both the boat trip to Monaco and in Monaco itself was spectacular. Seeing how the other half live with Ferraris etc driving around everywhere was fun and having the opportunity to just explore for ourselves once we got there was great. As Monaco is so small there was plenty of time to take it all in. Highly recommend getting the hop on hop off bus which leaves not far from where the boat arrives to take in all the sights.
    Guide on the boat was very knowledgable in showing us all the houses of the rich and famous along the Riviera coastline on the way home.

  • Wasn't happy at all. Departed Nice on time. Commentary was on but we couldn't hear anything. Great views but still none the wiser as to who owned any houses, villas, palaces whatever. Arrived In Monaco within 45 mins. We were given our return time of 16:45 which gave us plenty of time in Monaco. Very confusing place. Very steep hills. Queues for hop on hop off tour were long. We allowed lots of time tor return to our departure point. But we were 30 mins late. Naturally the boat had returned to Nice. The harbours all look the same. A map should have been provided to each passenger, highlighting the departure harbour. We had to book a taxi to return to Nice. Not a happy traveller, waste of 80.

  • Fantastic tour with friendly knowledgeable staff. It was everything I hoped it would be and more.

  • What better way to see the view from Nice to Monaco than by boat. It was a great atmosphere and the staff where lovely. Highly recommended.

  • Brilliant tour on the boat.

    The captain was very informative and had a great sense of humour.

  • Good cruise, great crew!

  • Loved the cruise. Commentary was great. Guide was so knowledgeable. Pointed out celebrities homes and gave us a great history about the area. Great price for a great way to visit Monaco. When you arrive in Monaco it's a little confusing on how to see the area. I suggest the bus tour where you can get on and off. Great way to learn about the area.

  • Very good way of getting to Monaco from NICE. Only 45 min to 60 min journey back, with good commentary on way back. Definitely recommend this cruise.
