Monaco’s Old Town & Rothschild’s Villa
Overlooking the sea, the Rock of Monaco is crowned with the ramparts of the old town and has an almost theatrical feel. Discover the Rock on foot with your guide and then travel to Saint Jean Cap Ferrat to reveal the priceless treasures found at Baroness Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild family villa on this Yachting Land Adventure.
From the yacht, travel to Monaco’s "Rock" and the oldest district of the Principality. Proceed to the top of the Old City by escalators and elevators, from where great panoramic views over the new city and its skyscrapers can be enjoyed. Your guide will escort you through the narrow streets, past the Oceanographic Museum, to the Cathedral containing the tomb of Princess Grace & Prince Rainier III and to see the exterior of the Prince Palace. There will be free time to explore this area on your own before departing for the next destination.
Leaving the Principality of Monaco by coach; a sweeping curved road into the delightful Mediterranean coast will take you to Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, the rugged promontory boasting many palatial villas. Your stop will be to visit the museum "Ile de France"". This villa houses a priceless collection that the Baroness Béatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild assembled throughout her life. Inspired by the great Renaissance residences of Venice and Florence and surrounded by seven gardens of different themes, the villa contains an exceptional collection of porcelains, furniture's, carpets, tapestries, canvases displayed among what were the apartments of Madame de Ephrussi. After a guided visit through the stunning rooms and exhibits you will be invited for a refreshment. Then you will drive back to Monaco along the Lower Corniche, which runs by the coast at the foot of the mountain slopes to return to your waiting SeaDream yacht.
