Luxury Mega Yacht Charter Itinerary in the French Riviera
A six step itinerary:
After your flight into Nice, greet your yacht in the colorful fishing village of Villefranche-sur-Mer.
Its old-world charm has made it a featured location in many James Bond films as well as The Jewel of
Anchor off St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat to take in the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild perched between
the port and the mainland. After mooring in Monaco, a glamorous night-life scene is guaranteed at
Place du Casino, the center of Monte Carlo. The chic, neo-Deco bistro Quai des Artistes provides
fabulous cuisine and people watching.
Enroute to Antibes, visit one of the medieval hilltop villages. Shop along the cobblestone streets and
visit the sculpture garden and the modern art collection at Foundation Maeght. Spend the evening docked
alongside other spectacular yachts at The International Yacht Club.
Considered one of the most romantic old towns on the Mediterranean coast, Antibes inspired Picasso to
paint on a panoramic scale. Stroll Promenade Amiral-de-Grasse along the crest of Vauban's seawalls.
View the impressive collection in the Musee Picasso.
Make a quick trip into Provence to visit charming St. Paul de Vence. Then cruise past Jan-Ies-Pins
for beautiful views over cocktails and appetizers. Anchor off romantic Iles de Lerins for a quiet
alfresco dinner onboard before your next stop -- "over-the-top" St. Tropez!
Moor at Jean-Jaures and head ashore early to tour the medieval backstreets before the crowds. Be sure
to visit the Musee de I'Annociade, which traces the evolution of painting from impressionism to
expressionism. Or, if you danced until the wee hours in one of St. Tropez's many chic clubs, it
may be your day to sleep late.
