Holidays in
Monte Carlo

Live like a celebrity in Monaco

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.
