What to do with one full day - car & driver

My husband and I will be in Monaco for two nights-Crystal Serenity ship.

The first day is spent on a tour of Cannes, St Paul de Vence and Grasse perfume factory.

On day two, we have a car and driver.

What should we explore/see? We have 8 hours - thinking...

Eze

Cap Ferrat

Nice

OR

Bordighera - I am in love with Monet's works of Bordighera (even though they were painted in Giverny).

Please help with the best places to see in such a short time.

Many thanks.

Eze and Nice would take up your entire day already.

Eze village including exotic garden = 1h30/2h + perfume factory (the same as in Grasse) = 0h45

Nice = old town, colline du chateau for the view....half day minimum

Cap ferrat = for the beach ?? or you can visit Villa Ephrussi de Rostchild 2h ?

--

I will take off Cannes and Grasse (you have the same perfume factory in Eze)

ok for Saint Paul = 2hrs

if you have a car, you can drive near saint paul to "Tourettes sur loup" and Gourdon

you do not want to have a look in Monaco ?

We have a flat in Villefranche and spend about ten weeks a year there. Apart from cycle rides into the hills, we almost never leave the area bounded by Nice, Cap Ferrat and Eze. However, you really need to walk to appreciate the area; through the old town and along the promenade in Nice, along the seafront from St Jean and around Eze Village at the very minimum. I would also advise you to drive all three of the Corniche roads between Monaco and Nice, with plenty of stops to look at the views.

Sorry for the late response to your questions.

Life got very busy.

We leave today for Venice and will be in Monaco next week.

Many thanks for your insight and ideas.

Thank you.
