Board your sightseeing boat at the Port of Nice for either a morning or afternoon tour.

Bask in the glowing Mediterranean sun while you glide down the coast of the French Riviera. Listen to informative on-board commentary about the history of this region as you gaze up at the little villages perched on hillsides overlooking the water. Watch the landscape rise from the beaches through hills and up to the mountains in the distance. Admire the luxurious villas with their magnificent sea views.

Cruise through the Rade de Villefranche-sur-Mer and around the Cap de Nice. Venture back toward the shore to see the fortress of the Citadelle. Turn around in the bay for the return trip along Cap Ferrat and into the Baie des Anges. Watch people stroll along the Promenade des Anglais in Nice.

Your boat returns to the Port of Nice after about an hour's time on the water.
