Shore Excursion – Highlights of Monaco & Nice | Cannes, France

posted in: Channel NCLFreestyle | 0

The dazzling city of Nice enjoys a privileged setting on the hill-framed curve of the Baie de Anges. Travel along the Promenade de Anglais, see the Russian Orthodox Church and take a walk around the fascinating old town with its narrow streets. Take in the vibrant colors and fragrances of the flower market, then continue to Monaco and enjoy a guided walking tour of the main highlights. You’ll have free time for lunch on ‘the Rock’ before continuing to Monte Carlo. Marvel at the Place du Casino, where you’ll have some free time to take in the attractions of your choice around the square.

Note: Your coach will park at the old train station and you’ll continue on foot (approx. 30 minutes) uphill, over cobblestone streets and large steps. To reach Casino Square, there is an approximate 10 minute walk and 80 steps from the coach parking area. Casino de Monte Carlo opens its Salles Americaines (free admission) at noon, with slot machines only. Salles Publiques (entrance fee of 10 Euros in cash) is open at 12:00 noon for Roulette, 2:00 p.m. for slot machines. Visitors must be at least 18 years of age, show passport and driver’s license. Formal dress is not required to enter most of the casino, but smart dress is strongly encouraged; no shorts or flip-flops are allowed. There is a free-admission, American-style casino at the Cafe de Paris, which opens at 10:00 a.m.
