Top attractions in Monaco
When it comes to smallest countries, the country Monaco, capital of hedonism, is second only to the Vatican, capital of holiness. Money can buy anything in this glamorous state, anything except maybe the view of the Mediterranean from Monaco-Ville.
This building has been the residence of the Monaco prince since 1191—and it remains so today, as well as a museum and center of tourism.
After you watch the changing of the guards at the Prince's Palace, take a short walk to Monaco-Ville, aka Old Town, seated on this giant monolith looking over the coast.
This “exotic garden” is a cliffside botanical garden with a rich collection of cacti and spectacular views of the sea. Be sure to take a private tour of the cave.
Catching a show in this amazing French-style opera house is a once in a lifetime opportunity, but its stateliness is even worth admiring from the outside.
Rising from the cliffside, overlooking the sea, is the monumental Baroque Revival building. Not only is there an aquarium, but many sea-related objects are on view.
This gigantic conference center is seafront on Larvotto. Check their official website for events ranging from exhibitions to ballet.
“Glamour and prestige” meet at the Monaco Grand Prix, one of the most important Formula One motor raceways in the world.
You can thank Princess Caroline for this paradise proposed to save the House of Grimaldi from bankruptcy. You might recognize this Monaco casino from a few Bond movies.
This is the first rule of Monaco nightlife. It’s actually the law to have a personal ID on you at all times, and you’ll likely be asked to flash it before entering a Monaco club.
How big is it? The entire country is less than three miles wide. Plan to stroll and enjoy the scenery, but take comfortable walking shoes!

- If you want to experience Monaco and its lively bustle, plan to visit in the summer, but note that beaches will be packed and prices will be higher. If you'd prefer to relax and save some money, try to go in April or October, when the weather is still nice.

What people are saying about Monaco
Every step is wonderful.. starting from the exact time for picking up from the hotel till dropping off.. We were a small group (five persons). First I would like to thank Our tour guide Reem who was the best thing during the day...she was very kind helpful.. warm.. nice..give us all the time we need to discover each place we went to. She had a lot of information and tell us every details on a very simple way..same like she are telling a story.. She offered me to complete the day & join the group to Anteb. Cannes & an amazing french village named Sant poul d'..... All the places we went to is like a heaven...really I had an amazing day...visit a lot of cities and places in one day I highly recommend to have this trip and make it a full day not half to discover the beauty of French Revira & the amazing French village's... Thank u Reem for making my day...
Driver was late to pick up, however when I called office to check on arrival time they blamed me for not being outside apartment (which I was 15 mins before advised arrival time) driver eventually arrived 45 mins late due traffic hold ups (understandable) but not good for office to make me feel that I was somehow responsible for delay!! Tour was great and Fragonard very interesting, but would say half day cannot do justice to Monaco and Eze next time I will allow a day for each.
Driver showed up on time at hotel. He was personable, informative and a great driver. I drove for a half hour and let Ail drive the car the other half hour as it should be driven. I enjoyed being the co pilot even more! He new the roads and when to put the car in performance mode.....exilerating power! Unbelievable ride with Ail (spelling name?) we had great conversations I give him 5 Stars also. Thanks for a wonderful experience, Tom Keenan
If you can get a good driver who is enthusiastic this would be a great tour. We enjoyed the stops and the views but luckily I researched the places I would be before hand and knew what to expect. Driver gave overview of area but no details on any of the things to do or places to go and even skipped old town Nice.
The only way to travel around the French Riviera. What a great time you will have . The company owner is so helpful. The sat nav easy to follow & the views stunning. Make a impression in Monte Carlo with Nice Cars.
