Cruise tο French Riviera Ports !

French Riviera ports located in the heart of a key destination nestled between sea and inland offer direct access to a wide variety of sightseeing and leisure variety with your feet dipped in the sea.

As many discoveries between traditional heritage and cosmopolitan culture, cruise passengers will enjoy great experience.

Cannes, capital of cinema, city of stars and luxury offers a wide variety of tourist and cultural activities.

Antibes-Juan les Pins is renowned for its jazz festival and the great artists who have lived there, such as Picasso with Chateau Grimaldi (Grimaldi Castle), now converted into a modern art museum (Picasso Museum).

Nice is a colourful city of Carnival, ideal location between the sea and mountains, and is a city with interesting architecture with a wide range of activities, like the famous flower market and the must-see Promenade des Anglais (the Promenade of the English) which borders the Baie des Anges.

The bay of Villefranche sur Mer: between the Cap of Nice and Cap Ferrat is one of the deepest natural harbours in the Mediterranean Sea providing a safe anchorage for ships. This very charming village, full of history is located nearby Monaco and offers spectacular vistas of the coast and surrounding hills.

In any of these great scenary spots all cruise passengers will be welcomed by French Riviera Cruise Club partners in the best way for inevitable memories.
