This lavish seaside resort is the perfect place to go for a glamorous getaway. Monte Carlo holidays brim with luxury, decadence and revelry. The most well-known quarter of Monaco (the world’s second-smallest country), Monte Carlo is home to such sites as the Casino de Monte-Carlo, made famous by two Bond movies, and the Princess Grace Theatre, named after the Hollywood star who married the Prince of Monaco. But it’s not all about the glitz. The handsome town is nestled in the foothills of the majestic Mont Agel and faces the glistening deep-blue Mediterranean Sea.
Stretching out from the promenade, you can shop at high-end retailers, dine at some of the world’s finest restaurants, then party the night away at exclusive nightclubs. And at the right time of year on holidays to Monte Carlo, you’ll be able to spot the fastest cars in the world hurtling through the district’s winding streets during the Monaco Grand Prix.
Eat fine food
Michelin-starred restaurants are the jewel in the Riviera’s crown and will delight all of the senses – or you can dine on exquisite seafood by the marina.
Have a flutter
The Casino de Monte-Carlo complex is a decadent place to while away your evening and make either low- or high-stake bets – whatever takes your fancy.
Go to the opera
The opulent Opéra Monte Carlo has hosted internationally acclaimed operas for many years, famously staging debuts of productions from composers such as Puccini and Massenet.
