Departure Time

1:30 PM
Begin your arts exploration of the French Riviera with pickup at your Monaco hotel, then enjoy a scenic drive along the Middle Corniche road. You'll get fantastic views over the Mediterranean as you head toward your first tour stop in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

Spend time in the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, the one-time home of Madame  Ephrussi de Rothschild. Visit the former private apartments, still beautifully decorated, and home to a particularly excellent collection of porcelain. Walk through the villa's nine gardens, where pretty fountains sit between plantings of exotic flowers, and soak in the incredible coastal views from this lovely spot.

Next, drive down to the waterfront city of Nice, where there are several nice art museums and galleries. Join your knowledgeable guide for a stop in the Cimiez neighborhood for a trip to the Chagall Museum (Musée National Message Biblique Marc Chagall). Here, you'll have time to explore the collection on your own, including the famous series of biblical paintings.

Nice is also home to the Matisse Museum, which is the last stop on your tour. Henri Matisse lived in the city from 1917 to 1954, and this museum holds a significant collection of his work. The museum is in a 17th-century formerly private villa, though not one Matisse occupied, with olive trees in the gardens outside.

Please note: Your visits to the museums are independent; your guide will not join you inside the museums.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Musee Matisse
So many artists over the years have made the French Riviera their home, drawn by the azure-blue sea, vibrant colors and fabled clear light for which the region is so famous. No surprise then that the cosmopolitan city of Nice boasts museums-a-plenty, with artwork from different eras lurking ‘round every corner. The Matisse Museum is nearby on Cimiez Hill, and this is the next museum on your day’s list. The museum is housed in a distinctive red Genoese villa that dates back to the 17th century, with architecture that is arguably every bit as fascinating as the artwork housed within. Step inside and let the bright colors that exemplified Henri Matisse’s artwork inspire your own creative thinking as you wander around and explore independently.

This was a great tour. Our driver, Oliver, was excellent. He told us about the area as we drove from Monte Carlo to Nice. We wish we had more time at the Chagall Museum (only 45 min.), we barely finished the audio tour. Oliver was very accommodating and drove us thru Massena Sq. and on a little bit of the Prom. des Anglises for atmosphere. The Rothschild's Mansions was an additional treat - beautiful gardens and views of the Mediterranean. All in all, a memorable tour at a great price. Convenient pick-up at the pier, on time visits to the museums and congenial guide. This was our 1st Viator - we'll be back!
