Example French Riviera Itinerary
Day 1. Arriving at Nice International Airport, you will be met by the crew of your chartered boat from Taylor’d Yacht Charters and whisked away to the picturesque fishing port of Villefranche. Descending the winding road into the little village, you may see M/Y Lady Sheridan or one of many other charter yachts anchored in one of the most enclosed natural bays of the Riviera. She is just one of the many beautiful yachts you can rent from Taylor’d Yacht Charters.
After dinner, you will depart for quaint Portofino (90 NM, 8 hours).
Day 2. The next morning you will awaken to the smell of a French breakfast with freshly baked croissants. Spend the day exploring this quaint village and its extraordinary shops. Back on board in the evening for cocktails and a sumptuous dinner, your yacht may depart after dinner for Monaco 85 NM miles away, about 8 cruising hours.
Day 3. Wake up in the tiny principality of Monaco. Spend the day exploring the famous city of Monte Carlo, returning for dinner on board. After dinner, perhaps you will want to enjoy an evening at the opera or perhaps the Casino.
Day 4. The next morning, depart Monaco for Cannes (25 NM, 2 hours). Spend the day exploring the city famous for its Film Festival and exclusive shopping, followed by a trip to Iles de Lerins, two small islands located a few kilometers offshore.
Day 5. Depart in the late afternoon for St. Tropez (25 NM, 2 hours). Enjoy cocktails on board while taking in the beautiful coastline. Arrive in St. Tropez for hors d’ouvers and a relaxing stroll along the marina. After dinner, enjoy the glitzy night life at the many waterfront bars and night clubs.
Day 6. The next day, explore the shops and art galleries or spend the day anchored off Pampelonne Beach. For the energetic, your chartered yacht from Taylor’d Yacht Charters probably has a full complement of water toys to play on. After a fun filled day of activities, relax in the Jacuzzi, sipping cocktails, and watching the sun go down on your final evening.
