Monte Carlo port for one day

We are docking in Monte Carlo for one day. I have booked a 4 hour side trip to Nice and Eze. Then thought we'd spend the rest of the day in Monte Carlo. Should have about 4 hours in Monte Carlo before we have to leave. Do you all think this is a good plan?

Our friends are going on a cruise that docks in Nice. Do you think it was worth it taking the tour to Nice and Eze or would you just do your own thing. How would you go to Monaco from the ship by taxi? And is the cost very much? If you were to stay in Nice what is the area you would go to just enjoy some of the city and shop and eat and how would you get there by taxi? They are elderly as well.

From Nice Port to Monaco :

Taxi = may be 80 / 90 euros ?

train = too difficult

public bus = walk 10 min and take the bus line 100, about 30min to Monaco and less than 3 euros each one way per person

Nice area for tourist = old city, promenade des anglais, coline du chateau

eventually ave. jean medecin for shopping

eat = old town

taxi = just walk 5 or 10 from Nice Port to old city, you don't need a taxi
