Trip from Nice To Monaco Monte-Carlo

With Monaco walking tour you can mingle with the rich and famous and “ooh and ah” over the fabulous yachts in the harbours. Pause to appreciate the skill of the Formula 1 drivers as they dart through the tightest of motor-racing bends in the city streets. Monaco is of course home of the Grand Prix. Afterwards, visit the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, the burial place for the Grimaldi royal line, including Grace Kelly and Rainier III.

You will see the famous Oceanographic Museum devoted to marine science, a sensational Baroque Revival building which overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. Founded in 1910, famed ocean scientist Jacques-Yves Cousteau served as its director for more than 30 years. An aquarium in the basement is home to 4,000 species of fish and features tropical water ecosystems.

There is limited space on the Monaco Walking Tour, and it is always extremely popular. Be sure to book online in advance and make sure you’re with us to discover this world class city with this world class tour!



Imagine the scene. It is 1297 and Monaco is no more than a small Greek colony. Francois Grimaldi, disguised as a monk, successfully led a small army into the fortress of Monaco. He reclaimed it in the name of the Pope. And so began the Grimaldi rise to prominence which continues to this day. The legacy of his daring raid is recorded on Monaco’s coat of arms. It features two monks fighting with swords. Little would he have known that the results of his victory would one day be so valuable.

Monaco is a tiny city. Yet it is one of the most expensive areas to buy real-estate anywhere in the world. The best example must be the Prince’s Palace. It is still the official home of the country’s rulers, the Grimaldi family currently headed by Prince Albert II, the son of Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier.

Wealth and luxury are on full display in this opulent city. It lies in the fabulous French Riviera on the Mediterranean Sea. The Monte-Carlo district in particular is renowned for its famous casino, lavish Opera house, ancient churches, and exotic Japanese garden.

The definitive way to explore any city is on foot. And, the best way to discover everything a new city has to offer is with a well-informed local guide. It all comes down to the guiding; who and what they know. This Monaco Walking Tour will put you into the hands of a trusted local expert. They come with years of experience and a vast knowledge. What better way to experience this glitzy and glamorous jewel of a city?

What does the Trip from Nice to Monaco ticket include?
The ticket for our Trip from Nice to Monaco pays mainly for your tour guide that will spend 3 to 4 hours with you in the Principality of Monaco. Additionally, the price includes the train ticket from Nice's main train station to Monaco Monte-Carlo train station and an open return ticket back to Nice. (This applies only to tickets with transfer between Nice and Monaco.) That means that after the tour, you are free to stay in Monaco and come back with your train ticket whenever you want to.
Can I meet the tour straight in Monaco, instead of at the Nice train station?
Yes, this is absolutely possible. If you wish to join us in Monaco, you need to purchase the option without transfer between Nice and Monaco. The meeting point will be near the Pont Sainte Devote, Bus Stop, 98000, Monaco at 11h00 (11:00AM). The price will be 39€.
Can I join the Trip to Monaco although I have not booked the tour online?
No. Since there is a limited space and we need to buy the train tickets, we need to know the exact number of participants for every tour. Therefore, it is crucial for you to book if you want to join our Monaco tour.
Where can I find the photo from the tour?
During every tour we take a group picture as a memory of our time spend together. We always post these pictures on our Facebook page and we will also send you an email with it.
Should I tip my guide?
If you enjoyed your tour, you can certainly tip your guide for the time and effort they spent with you during your experience! If you really enjoyed the tour, but you don’t have enough money for a tip, you can remember your guide’s name and you can leave her/him a good review on TripAdvisor or on Google reviews.
Where is the meeting place for the Trip from Nice to Monaco?
1. Option with transfer between Nice and Monaco
We meet in front of the main train station of Nice (Gare de Nice Ville) next to Paul Bakery.
2. Option without transfer between Nice and Monaco
We meet near the Pont Sainte Devote, Bus Stop, 98000, Monaco.
How do I recognize my guide?
On our Trip from Nice to Monaco, the guide will be waiting next to the Paul Bakery with a red umbrella.
What time is the meeting for the Trip to Monaco?
Everyone meets the guide at 10:05 at the meeting spot. The train leaves at 10:20, and although we will wait as long as possible for all the reservation, we cannot miss the train. Please make sure to be there on time – 10:05.
In case you’re joining the trip in Monaco, we meet at 11:00.
How long does the tour last?
The tour lasts for about 4 hours.
Do we need to bring our passport?
No. Although Monaco is a sovereign country that is not part of the European Union, it is a part of the Schengen area. That means that you don’t need to have your passport with you to enter. If, however, you plan to go to the Casino Monte-Carlo, you will need a passport to get into the playing area.
What main points will we see in the tour?
Your guide will take you through all the main tourist sites in Monaco, starting with the Monte-Carlo Casino, and continuing around Port Hercules, Prince Palace, Cathedral Notre Dame Immaculée and the Oceanographic Museum. The tour will also take you through some hidden gems of Monaco like Marché Condamine, Théâtre du Fort Antoine or Jardin St. Martin.
Is there any specific dress code for visiting specific places in Monaco?
For the tour itself there is no specific dress code, however, we do visit a Cathedral Notre-Dame Immaculee, where ladies need to be decently covered. It is not compulsory to go to the cathedral, however, if you want to enjoy the beauty of this landmark take into account these things – have your shoulders covered, make sure your skirt/shorts aren’t too short (knee length is safe) and have your stomach covered. A good solution is to have a scarf to cover yourself. If you wish to visit the paid part of the Casino Monte Carlo after the tour, keep in mind that you must have a “proper attire”. Lastly, Monaco has several nice places for a swim and if you wish to cool off after a few hours of walking we recommend having a swimsuit with you.
Otherwise, just wear comfortable clothes as there is lots of walking - high heels is probably not the best plan of action for the hills of Monaco.
Is the tour suitable for everyone? / Can I join the tour? / Is the tour stroller friendly?
Monaco is a hilly country. It is possible to adjust the route slightly to make it suitable for strollers, however, if you have any medical issues that might prevent you from fully enjoying the tour (e.g. with walking for a longer period of time or up a hill), we advise you not to book our tour.
I am running late for the tour. What do I do?
Since the train to Monaco leaves 10:20 we cannot wait too long for any late-comers. If you didn’t manage to be on the station on time and the group has already left, call on the number +33 649 244 407 and explain your situation. You will be given your guide’s contact and you’ll be advised to buy yourself a train ticket to Monaco, where you’ll meet with the tour guide and the whole group.
How can I get to the meeting place?
From the Port of Nice, go to the Garibaldi tram stop and take a tram in the direction of Henri Sappia. Get off of the tram on the Gare Thiers tram stop and walk for about 2 mins to the meeting spot, in front of the train station.
From the Promenade, take a bus 09, 59 or 70 to the “Jean Medecin/Hotel des Postes” stop. Then take a tram in the direction of Henri Sappia. Get off the tram at the Gare Thiers tram stop and walk for about 2 mins to the meeting spot, in front of the train station. OR Take a bus 52 to the “Albert 1er/Phocéens” stop. Then take a tram in the direction of Henri Sappia. Get off the tram at the Gare Thiers tram stop and walk for about 2 mins to the meeting spot, in front of the train station.
What are the conditions for entering the casino?
The entrance hall is open to all, with no age restrictions. However, if you wish to gamble you must be at least 18 years old and it will cost €17 to enter. You will be required to bring your passport or photo ID and dress smartly (meaning no shorts, sports shoes or flip flops to be worn at any times).

We went to Nice on our honeymoon and neither of us had been there before. Tracy really went above and beyond to make the whole tour an amazing experience. She discussed the history and culture of Monaco and seemed to genuinely love the country! Tracy is the perfect tour guide; she is so friendly and personable. We had a small group and she took the time to talk to each of us and listened to our input on some aspects to personalize the tour a bit. Monaco was gorgeous; if you are visiting Nice, you should definitely spend a day there!

Great and also calm tour with Thomas. I can highly recommend it!

I did this tour with a guide named Thomas and it was a very good, tour with the perfect duration, lunchtime, bathroom breaks and the perfect amount of information. It was very well organised at a slow but good pace for the hot weather and Thomas shared both historical and current facts which made it very balanced. I can highly recommend it!

We had a wonderful walk in Monaco. Our guide was Lili, she was adorable and very helpful. Me and my friend enjoyed it to the fullest and we both would definitely recommend this trip with Lili!

I had a really great day on this walking tour. Our group consisted of only a handful of other women. So we had a fun girls' day walking around Monaco. The tour is very relaxed and a great way to see a lot of Monaco. When the tour is over, you also have plenty of time to stay in the area as your return ticket to Nice is valid at any time on the same day (and the trains run every 30 minutes or so).

This tour was great and so was our guide Lilli. She did not stress and was always happy to take pictures of everyone who wanted. We followed her to so many cool places. At the end of the tour everyone was free to either stay or come back to Nice. Loved every minute of this tour.

The tour with Polina was just great. She helped us around Monaco and the walking tour of Nice was also excellent. I would definitely recommend this tour

A very nice day with Rich. It was incredibly hot that day but he managed to keep us in the shade and give us breaks. An organized tour in Monaco is makes sense in order to see the highlights effectively. Well worth to join!
Fun Day & Night Experiences French Riviera Paris
It was an excellent and informative tour with a very friendly guide. Definitely great introduction to the most famous sites in Monaco, especially if you only have a few hours (as we did), you'll get to see all the highlights!
Fun Day & Night Experiences French Riviera Paris
Wonderful tour. Our guide was Rich, who was super knowledgeable. He made sure everyone was doing all right. The tour started late because the train management cancelled the morning trips to Monaco, but Rich was flexible and was able to still come up with an excellent tour given the circumstance. Bring a bottle of water!

Very well organised trip. Maya and Diana have been wonderful. Also did the Cannes free walking tour which was as great as this one. Highly recommended.
Fun Day & Night Experiences French Riviera Paris
It was a funny and relaxed tour with Catherine. We learnt lots of facts about Monaco intermingled with some funny stories. The organisation and timing was perfect, we walked a lot but it was never a rush because of a few breaks we took to take pictures or get a coffee or whatever. Hope you guys continue doing this good job.

Such a fantastic tour. We had a great tour guide (Hannah) and it was relaxed but also very interesting. I appreciated that we had time to explore on our own too. The beautiful Malla beach was perfect for the end of the tour. Thanks for a great experience!
Fun Day & Night Experiences French Riviera Paris
The tour lasted nearly a full day but i was not bored a single minute. We met at Nice train station at 9:30 am and were back in Nice by 4:30 pm. It's extremely good value for money as the price includes train. Louisa was lovely and knew so much about the Monaco. I highly recommend to take this tour.

good mix of history and current connections

Great day trip from Nice to Monaco. Graham was absolutely cool and provided us with a good mix of history and current connections. A very well thought out itinerary and the bonus of a lunch spot I probably would never have found on my own. Would undoubtedly recommend!

definitely worth the money

We had a free Walking tour in Nice and Monaco this week with the best tourguide Mark! He told us so many interesting things and funfacts about both cities and was very sympathic and caring. We have seen all the important sights of both cities so it is definitely worth the price! Thank you, Mark! The Austrian girls

This was an excellent and informative tour with a very friendly guide. Could be a really great introduction to Monaco’s most famous sites, and if you only have a few hours (like we did), youll get to see all the highlights!

I am SO glad I joined the Riviera Walking Tour to Monaco & Monte Carlo. Without this tour and our tour guide - Rich, I would be lost & would not have appreciated the visit as much as I did. Rich is an excellent teacher & story teller. He really makes Monaco’s history sound dramatic & interesting. This tour was well worth its value.

This is a perfect trip for families, couples or solo travellers like myself, who just want to see Monaco and learn about the lifestyle and culture. It’s a great trip to get to know new people, and most importantly, the tour guide we had provided us with lots of interesting facts about Monaco. This trip is worth doing as you get to see all of the parts of Monaco without the chance of missing them, and you learn a lot along the way. Thank you for providing such a great trip!
