Updated Guidance for Cruises Departing the U.S. Beginning August 8, 2022. View health and travel requirements
Cannes shore excursions are nothing short of luxurious. Today, Cannes is known as the heart of the French riviera and a favorite among Mediterranean cruise passengers. It’s relaxed but high-end, where its world-famous film festival brings the city into the international spotlight each year. While Cannes was once a fishing village, today it symbolizes a retreat from the modern world to a simpler life.
Drive the beachfront on the way to Nice along the Promenade des Anglais and take in the scenery of the French Riviera from the summit of the town of Èze, which boasts colorful, unbeatable views of the Mediterranean and yachts dotting the shoreline. You can also explore the scenic village of St. Paul de Vence on a guided tour of this quaint French town. You’ll learn its detailed history and enjoy pastries and coffee to wrap up a relaxing afternoon. Looking for peace and quiet? There are also bus tours of the area for those who want a more relaxed approach to their Cannes cruise excursions, where you’ll take a half day to drive the coast and explore the less populated town of Frejus.
And no cruise to Cannes would be complete without taking a trip to the famous, deluxe towns of Monaco and Monte Carlo, where the architecture and history will take you back in time to the 17th century. Of course, you’ll want to try your luck at Monaco’s upscale casinos.
Cannes shore excursions offer once-in-a-lifetime experiences of luxury. You can hire a private driver to take you along the riviera in true style. Choose from a Ferrari or Lamborghini for your adventure. You’ll feel like an A-list celebrity zipping through the mountain range of the Alps and the Mediterranean coast of Cannes.
Perhaps only while on Cannes shore excursions can you find a perfume factory tour in Grasse, a town that’s grown famous for its scent-making. It’s a luxurious way to spend an afternoon in France at the Fragonard or Galimard factories, where perfume designers like Dior and Chanel come to perfect their signature fragrances. A guided tour of these factories is informative and also makes a great stop to buy gifts for your loved ones.
