Cruise the French Riviera in a Classic Car
Discover the south of France the French way
The Côte d'Azur is considered one of the most beautiful regions, drawing people from all over the world to its deep blue waters and lavish hotels, including many famous personalities from the 20th century and still today. From F. Scott Fitzgerald to Tina Turner, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, the French Riviera has a magical charm that attracts and seduces everyone that visits.
What better way to explore this magnificent region than behind the wheel of a classic sports car? Drive through the Saint-Tropez countryside in a classic Aston Martin DBS, just like James Bond. Cruise through Cannes and down the Croisette in a Ford Mustang Cabriolet 65. Take on the sharp bends of the Monte Carlo Rally in a Rolls Royce Corniche Cabriolet or simply go to Monaco for dinner in an Austin Healey 3000. Choose from our list of top, classic cars and discover the French Riviera in true style, discovering all the best and hidden spots. We will create a unique and bespoke itinerary just for you: why not stop along the way to take part in a cooking class with a Michelin chef, enjoy a classical music concert with a breathtaking view of Monaco, take part in a ‘pétanque’ game in Saint-Paul de Vence just like Picasso and Yves Montand, or create your own perfume in Grasse? From casino to concerts, we can curate your day to your every desire.
At 1889 Travel France, we will be happy to customize the experience according to your guests’ wishes!
