Enjoy a full day trip to beautiful towns and villages of the French Riviera region including Antibes and St Paul de Vence. First we will come and pick you up at your cruise ship in Villefranche sur Mer Port of Call.

Before the start of your small group tour, your guide will introduce you to the area and to the different sites that you will be seeing on this full day tour dedicated to the most renowned towns & villages of the French Riviera. This private tour in the south of France is a perfect introduction to this region for those of you who have only but a short time in the area.

Begin the day with a visit of Antibes

Discover the Côte d'Azur travelling along the coast arrive in Antibes, an enjoyable old town, that houses one of the most famous Picasso collections in the Picasso museum. The town’s port is located below its fortifications, with luxurious yachts and brightly painted fishing boats. In the 1500s, Antibes’ Fort Carré, which now dominates the port, was the last French stronghold before the Italian border.

Antibes has plenty of little streets to explore and you will certainly marvel as you admire the world’s largest yachts in Port Vauban and the largest marina on the French Mediterranean Sea. There are also some fantastic beaches between Antibes and the town of Juan les Pins such as La Garoupe and Cap d'Antibes where the Villa Eilenroc is located. Juan Les Pins is also famous for organizing one of the world's most famous Jazz festivals, Jazz à Juan.

Then reach the medieval village of Saint Paul de Vence

St Paul de Vence is one of the numerous perched villages that are located in the Provence hinterland mountain range. From its origin as a military stronghold it has kept its ramparts, guard’s way, canons and other such features.

The village is also very famous because of the large number of celebrities, painters or film producers who have come to appreciate the local light, the calm, the sea and peacefulness of the area. Picasso, Matisse, Chagall or Renoir are just but a few of those that have come to take advantage of this small paradise on earth to devote some time for their art work.

Here, you will have time to explore this unique village and stroll through the narrow and picturesque streets from the Royale Gate to the Southern Gate to discover magnificent stone facades from the 16th and 17th centuries. Other highlights of the village include the Folon chapel, the Fondation Maeght and amazing restaurants like La Colombe d'Or.

End the day in Nice

Back to Nice, jewel of the Côte d’Azur. Marvel at the beauty of the Promenade des Anglais. Explore the old town with its world famous flower market. The town is also home to the Marc Chagall national museum.

Other highlights of the city include 16th century houses, as well as numerous 19th century architecture that correspond to the city's popularity as a tourist destination. After the visit of Nice, it will be time to return to your Cruise Ship and that will be the end of your Villefranche Shore Excursion.
