Though boasting astounding coastlines, few visit Monaco – or the district of Monte Carlo – for the scenery alone. The quaint old town, Royal Palace, botanic gardens and white-stoned cathedral are just some of the sights on a traveller’s to-do list. Racers come for the Grand Prix in late-May, as drivers take 78 laps through the narrow city streets, whilst the Casino de Monte Carlo offers an extravagant gambling den dripping in gold. Head to the old quarter and check out the changing of the palace guard, or the winding cobbled streets of the hilltop village of Eze. For the best sunrise, visit the Larvotto peninsula.
Many people experience Monaco as an add-on day trip as part of a longer stay in France, or as a stop-off whilst exploring the French Riviera. This is a shameless waste of a beautiful location, and more time should be spent exploring the wonders Monaco has to offer. Speak to one of our team to find out how.
