Monte Carlo Shore Excursion Guide

Cruise lines offer a number of shore excursions for sale when visiting Monte Carlo. For your convenience, we have provided a sample listing below of the shore excursions typically sold by cruise lines that visit Monte Carlo. You may wish to check out 3rd party shore excursions in Monte Carlo to get a wider variety of options to choose from.

Old Monaco, the Royal Palace, and the St. Nicholas Cathedral

After arriving by bus, explore the vaulted passages, lovely buildings, and narrow streets of Old Monaco (or just enjoy a cup of coffee at a cafe). You then go to the Royal Palace & experience an audio tour, where you'll see the Throne Room and the State Apartments among other highlights. Toward tour's end, you visit the St. Nicholas Cathedral, where you'll see the Italian marble Episcopal Throne. Time permits a tour of the Musee d'Oceanographie or the Wax Museum. Lunch, snacks, and entry fees may not be included in these yours.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay around $60.
 
Booking Advice: Despite having yachts larger than most people's houses and the continuing well deserved reputation as a stomping ground for the rich and famous, buses are cheap (as little as 1 Euro) in Monte Carlo. That said, you could travel about on your own with relative ease here. Cruise line prices, with that in mind, are not quite as reasonable. Because of the walking this particular tour is rated as moderate in terms of physical exertion.

Monte Carlo & the Grand Casino

This 6 hour excursion tours the highlights of the Municipality of Monaco, Old Monaco, and Monte Carlo. You'll visit the Rock, see the old town, and go shopping at Casino Square or gamlbe in the Grand Casino!
 
Price: Adults expect to pay around $86.
 
Booking Advice: Because of sustained walking uphill, this excursion is rated as physically strenuous. You will need your passport if you intend to gamble and would like to collect your winnings. You may want to consider the private group rates for third party excursions.

Nice & Monaco On Your Own Tours

These do it yourself tours are essentially escorted transfers, which permit 2 hours of free time in Nice, and 3 hours in Monaco, last for a total of 8 hours and 45 minutes. This is an excellent option for those of you who have visited the Cannes area before, and for those of you who want to travel with your own group at your own pace.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay around $86.
 
Booking Advice: Because of the walking up hills and on uneven surfaces, such tours can be moderate to strenuous in terms of physical exercise. You will need your passport if you intend to gamble and would like to collect your winnings. Past passengers who have been to Cannes and Monaco have had favorable reviews of cruise line excursions, but also highly rate third party private group tours as well.

Nice Tours

No Nice city tour would be complete without a chance to see and explore the Promenade de Anglais and Vielle Ville (the Old Town), and this tour does both. After your drive along the Bay of Angels, a tram ride takes you for a visit to Vielle Ville, where you'll see the Cours Saleya Flower Market among other highlights. The tour allows for time to stroll about, shop, and relax.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay from $70 to $80 for a 4 to 4.5 hour tour.
 
Booking Advice: Due to the walking, these tours are typically rated as moderate in terms of physical exercise. We do suggest checking online third party vendors to compare prices and the variety of tours.

Grand Corniche to Monaco & Eze

This full day (9 hour) tour takes you on a scenic journey to small villages and mountainside roads, including Napoleon's Grand Corniche, to the Rock of Monaco, the walled city, and modern Monaco. You'll visit Monaco's old quarter, see the exterior of the Oceanographic Museum, a romanesque cathedral, and the Prince's Palace. You'll then be driven on a section of the Grand Prix route to Casino Square for lunch, and have opportunity to play games of chance in the famed Grand Casino. En route back, you'll have opportunity to explore the mountain village of Eze (best done as a walking tour). Eze dates back to the medieval era, and it quite picturesque! The cost of your lunch is included.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay around $189 through the cruise lines.
 
Booking Advice: Due to the walking involved, this tour is rated as moderate in terms of physical exertion. Third party rates for private groups do not include lunch costs but do offer a competitive rate. You will need your passport if you intend to gamble and would like to collect your winnings.

Third Party Shore Excursions in Monte Carlo

3rd party shore excursions often have advantages over shore excursions sold by the cruise lines. Third party shore excursions can be less costly and feature smaller groups than shore excursions sold by the cruise lines. Often, the vendors you buy from directly are the same vendors used by the cruise lines themselves.
 
The benefit of buying shore excursions from the cruise line is that the vendors and pre-screened for safety and reliablity. While cruise lines shore excursions can be more expensive than buying direct from a local vendor, there is certainly peace of mind that the cruise line will be using a reliable, safe and trusted vendor. If you experience a problem with the vendor on a cruise line-sold shore excursion, the shore excursion managers onboard the cruise ship will likely be an invaluable resource to help settle disputes.
