Shore Excursion – Monaco & Monte Carlo | Cannes, France

posted in: Channel NCLFreestyle | 0

From Cannes, you’ll drive to Monaco, where after leaving your coach, you’ll be carried to the top of the rock by escalators and elevators. On the upper level, enjoy a guided walking tour passing by the Oceanographic Museum, the cathedral, and view the exterior of the Prince’s palace. After a short period of free time, you’ll reboard your coach and reach Monte Carlo Square where you’ll enjoy some additional leisure time to take in the attractions of your choice around the Place du Casino. You may wish to stroll across the street to admire the Hotel de Paris, do a little window shopping around the corner, or even try your luck at the Casino de Monte Carlo or the Cafe de Paris Casino.

Note: This tour will not operate on Norwegian Epic’s May 11, May 18 and May 25, 2014 sailings due to the Grand Prix. 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 pm for slot machines. Visitors must be at least 18 years of age, show passport and driver’s license.

There is a free-admission, American-style casino at the Cafe de Paris, which opens at 10:00 am. To reach Casino Square, there is an approximate 10 minute walk and 80 steps from the coach parking area.
