                                             Shore Excursion Glimpse of Monaco                                       
Duration: Approximately 5 hours

You'll delight in this excursion to worldly Monaco, a staunchly independent little country on the Riviera, perhaps best known for its opulent casinos. You'll visit Monaco-Ville, high atop the Rock, a 220-foot-high promontory that is the site of the royal palace and the government building. Take elevators and escalators to the top for a walking tour along the steep, narrow streets, and visit the cathedral that houses the tomb of Princess Grace. Before returning to the ship, enjoy some free time shopping or relaxing in a café.

Note: Inside visits to the Cathedral are not permitted if religious services are in progress.

                                    Shore Excursion Grasse & St. Paul de Vence                                     
Duration: Approximately 5 hours

Begin this tour with a scenic ride to Grasse, certainly the most fragrant town on the Riviera. Surrounded by fields of jasmine and roses, it is the capital of the French perfume industry. On a fascinating tour of the Parfumerie Fragonard museum and factory, you'll learn about the history of perfume making and how flowers are turned into liquid fragrances. Back on board your motorcoach, you'll pass through a river canyon to the 16th-century town of St. Paul de Vence. With its assemblage of stone houses and narrow walkways and its location amid colorful terraced vineyards, bougainvillea and mimosa blossoms, it is considered by many to be the Cote d'Azur's most picturesque village. You'll take a walking tour through this historic medieval walled town, exploring the wonderful shops, art galleries and boutiques. Afterwards, you'll have time to shop on your own and relax in a café. Or visit the Maeght Foundation, a modern art museum in an avant garde building, featuring works by Chagall, Braque, Miro, Kandinski, Leger and Matisse, along with many other examples of 20th-century paintings and sculptures.

Duration: Approximately 4 - 5 hours

Once there, you'll travel along the Promenade de Anglais, a splendid palm-fringed boulevard stretching three miles beside the Baie de Anges. You will see the Russian Orthodox Church, built by Tsar Nicholas II and considered the most beautiful religious edifice of the Orthodoxy outside Russia. Its pink bricks, light gray marble and six onion domes add an exotic touch to Nice's skyline. Next, you'll arrive in Vieille
Ville, the Old Town of Nice. The narrow streets teem with life and are filled with excellent, moderately priced restaurants. Before your return to the ship you'll have time to walk around and explore or relax in a café.

After you arrive, you'll enjoy a walking tour along this historic old medieval walled town. You can explore the wonderful shops, art galleries and boutiques. Afterwards, you'll have some time to shop on your own and relax with a cool drink or snack in a nice café. You may wish to visit the Maeght Foundation, one of the most modern art museums in all of Europe, housing the finest collection of contemporary art on the Riviera in an impressive avant garde building. Works by Chagall, Braque, Miró, Kandinski, Leger and Matisse are on view, along with many other examples of 20th century paintings and sculptures.
