Our old maps and routes from the own collection of the Union of Taxi Drivers in Paris and Nice. More than a hundred years have passed, but maps and routes are still relevant and in demand for our tourist friends as souvenirs.

Villefranche (Villefranche-sur-Mer). Acquaintance with the French Riviera classically begins with the panorama of Nice and Villefranche (Villefranche-sur-Mer), which can be seen from the height of the mountain cornice. Further, the mountain road leads us to the rock with the Principality of Monaco.

Monaco. Here you will definitely see the old quarters and the Cathedral of St. Nicholas, and your guide will tell you about their history..

Monte Carlo. Short stop at Casino Square for local sightseeing, palace, gardens and terraces. The road of the annual Formula 1 rally route will take you to the medieval city of Èze. From its top you will see, in the palm of your hand, the city of Beaulieu-sur-Mer, Cape Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and almost the entire Riviera.

Saint-Paul-de-Vence. Located in the foothills of the city with medieval architecture, which has become the world’s “Mecca” for artists.

Grasse. The capital of Perfumery, the birthplace of its industry. If your company has “F”, then you can get stuck here for a long time.

Lunch or Dinner. At your own discretion or on the advice of your guide, you can choose one of the local restaurants either by location with a beautiful view, or by your gastronomic preferences. Not bad in this regard are the restaurants of both Grasse and Saint-Paul-de-Vence.

Cannes. The famous Croisette (Promenade de la Croisette) and the Palace of Film Festivals with the Avenue of Stars. Yacht club and old port. Church of Our Lady with a magnificent view of Cannes and its surroundings.

Antibes, an ancient city of antique dealers and book dealers, where Napoleon Bonaparte himself became the governor, where Picasso worked, and Guy de Maupassant liked to moor his yacht “Dear Friend”.
