The Côte d’Azur & Monaco driving tour is a five day luxurious experience on the French Riviera. The route we have planned for you is fabulous and you will enjoy spending the days in the car of your choice, but there is also plenty of time to relax in the superior hotels we have picked for you. This drive is a great opportunity to explore different areas of France – the coastline, Provence, mountain roads in Alpes-Maritimes, Col de Turini, and finish the whole experience in Monaco.

The drives on this tour go through National Park Verdon, where you will see a famous tourist attraction – the gorge. From there head in to Provence, and lavender season or not this region is always beautiful. End the tour with drives up on scenic mountain passes, picture perfect balcony roads carved into the mountains, and many high spots from where you can enjoy a view down to the Mediterranean. Col de Turini is a lovely driving road and for any rally fan a must-do, and although challenging, you do it in your own pace you feel comfortable with. More than anything you should enjoy the scenery, because that region has some dramatic landscapes.

If you drive a supercar on the French Riviera, where would you like to finish the tour? In Monaco of course. You are going to roll in to Monte Carlo, and you might think they have seen it all there but every nice cars on the streets in Monaco will still turn heads, and stop outside Hôtel Hermitage. Your home for the last night is rated the top hotel in Monte Carlo and we think that spot is deserved.

Are you ready to see with your own eyes why so many people think Côte d’Azur is the world’s best place?
