Why Monaco will be your next travel destination

Fancy some sun, glamor and a vacation by the water? Monaco, also called "the Rock" of the French Riviera, has a unique charm that attracts many billionaires. Its monuments steeped in history, its princes and princesses as well as its idyllic setting will transport you on a journey combining relaxation and glitter. Don't you believe us? Find out why we believe Monaco will be your next travel destination.

Between glamor and a district steeped in history

The principality has nothing to envy to the rest of the French Riviera. Its city center with a medieval atmosphere is populated with small shops, cafes and restaurants. Nothing better than a day to lose yourself in the small steep alleys to discover all the secrets of the principality. The Prince's Palace is located on the heights of Monaco, offering a breathtaking view of the entire Monegasque Rock. Browse the various Louis XV style lounges and bedrooms while dreaming for a few hours of a princely life like that of Grace Kelly!

Become a British spy for an evening

If I tell you Bond, Aston Martin or even GoldenEye, the famous casino scenes come to mind. The Monte Carlo casino is a must in the principality. Put on your best dress, adjust your tie, and spend the night bluffing at the poker table or testing your luck at the slots. Afraid of being ridiculous? Do you practice before your trip with your poker friends, or why not on the Internet at slot machines? After all, the game is exactly the same but online ! A useful tip is to use online casino comparators. They list all the promotions and exclusive offers allowing you to optimize your investment from your first deposit. It is therefore easy to practice with free spins for example.

Live in nature and fresh water

For nature lovers and aquatic life enthusiasts, Monaco is the place to be. Stroll through the principality's various gardens: between its Japanese garden, the rose garden of Princess Grace and its impressive collection of exotic plants, a single day would not be enough! For lovers of the deep blue, a visit of the Oceanographic Museum is compulsory. This aquarium plays an important role in the fight for the conservation of endangered marine species and has more than 6,000 species of fish.

Its vintage cars and its Grand Prix

For car fans, plan your vacation around the dates of the Monaco Grand Prix. You will be able to admire the most beautiful racing cars in action. This legendary event, which takes place in the heart of the principality, is one of the most prestigious and anticipated races in the world. Do you prefer vintage cars? Discover the private collection of Prince Rainier III which has no less than 100 different vehicles. 

A little lazing on the beach to end your vacation in style

Going to the Côte d'Azur without diving into the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea would be an aberration. Enjoy a lazy day by the water on Larvotto Beach, Monaco's largest beach. If you fancy a little more glitter and to experience the jet-set side of the principality, why not settle on a deckchair at the private beach la Note Bleue where you might meet a celebrity or two.

Still not convinced? Perhaps ask Bono, Sharon Stone or Rihanna for advice, they have all the good addresses!
