Smallest country in the world. Wealthiest nation per person. Grand Prix HQ. Monaco is one of those places you just have to see. Admire shiny sports cars, glossy yachts and the beautiful Monaco cathedral as you cruise through the streets. You’ll get some spectacular views of the coast, as well. Your driver will also take you past a section of the Monaco Grand Prix course, so you can imagine the sound of the engines and the roar of the crowd. When you reach Monaco’s old town, you’ll get off the coach for an optional walking tour of the city, followed by some free time. Alternatively, you can forfeit the tour and explore under your own steam. Wander down the spindly cobbled streets, rummage through the dinky shops and stop for a cappuccino in one of the cosy patisseries. After returning to the coach, your driver will return you to the ship, where you'll pass through Nice along the way.
You won’t see the Monte Carlo Casino or Monte Carlo Square on the walking tour, as they’re both up a steep hill. If you fancy visiting them on your own, there’s a little train that’ll take you there for around 8 euros - we can't guarantee it will always be running though. There's a short walk and some steps from the tender boat to the coaches. As the Grand Casino opens at 2pm, you can't go inside on this tour. You'll see the cathedral from the outside only as it holds many services and we can't guarantee when it will be open. Sadly, this tour can't run during the Grand Prix.
