Imagine driving a classic Mercedes-Benz Convertible though the Côte d’Azur on the stunning Grand Corniche, which connects Nice and Monaco high above the Mediterranean. Your journey though the quaint and magnificent Eze, a medieval city perched on the hillside cliffs, warrants a stop for exploration and panoramic photography. Continue on to La Turbie to see the Trophy of Augustus, which was built in 6 BC in honor of Octavius, Caesar’s nephew and future Emperor Augustus. You adventure concludes in Monaco, where your only 20 minutes away from the infamous Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, and countless historical, cultural and stylish attractions all inviting discovery. You may just decide to keep driving, and who wouldn’t in a classic Jag, for there are beautiful scenic roads between Saint-Jean Cap Ferrat and Venice and charming coastal towns and villages that embody the life of the French Riviera and welcome visitors with warmth.
Trust us when we exclaim that there is nothing like feeling the thrill of driving an iconic classic or super car on the scenic and breathtaking roads of the French Riviera. Concierges at Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat have partnered with the car rental company Joey Rent to offer guests a fabulous ride & drive experiences.
The scenic roads of French Riviera have been a part of many famous movies, chosen for their breathtaking views inspiring legendary films such as How to Catch a Thief directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Grace Kelly and Cary Grant, Grace of Monaco with Nicole Kidman and several James Bond movies.
The fisherman’s village of Ville franche-sur-Mer, with its beautiful bay and Vauban fortress is an excellent place to start your exploration. Pursue your way through the iconic Promenade des Anglais in Nice, direction Antibes, passing by the cities of Cagnes sur mer and Villeneuve Loubet, each offering different panoramas of the sea.
The Fort Carré, another renowned work of Vauban dated from the second half of the sixteenth century, will welcome you to the old city of Antibes, a perfect stop for lunch and a walk through its rambling pedestrian streets, home to Picasso museum and a beautiful daily local market.
The Hotel concierges, in collaboration with car partner Joey Rent, will have you following the steps of those illustrious celebrities and enjoying the discovery of the most emblematic roads of the Côte d’Azur in style.
