The Côte d’Azur & Monaco driving tour gives you the opportunity to explore some of the most picturesque regions in the South of France – from the glamorous littoral twisting through the cliffs overlooking the glistening Mediterranean sea, to the open skies and unspoilt hinterland of Provence, into the French Alps on world-famous mountain passes, before finally concluding your adventure in the glittering Principality of Monaco. No better way to make a grand entrance than cornering the famous Monaco F1 GP Fairmont hairpin corner while playing the soundtrack of the supercar of your dreams…
