Top 8 Things to do 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.

Prince's Palace of Monaco

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.

Rock of Monaco

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.

Jardin Exotique de Monaco

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.

Opera de Monte-Carlo

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.

Oceanographic Museum

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.

Grimaldi Forum

This gigantic conference center is seafront on Larvotto. Check their official website for events ranging from exhibitions to ballet.

Monaco Grand Prix

“Glamour and prestige” meet at the Monaco Grand Prix, one of the most important Formula One motor raceways in the world.

Monte Carlo Casino

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.

Planning Your Monaco Visit

Keep Your Passport On You

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.

Walk everywhere

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!

What people are saying about Monaco

Timed perfectly to fit all activities in.

Brilliant trip, guide was very informative and friendly. He kept to timings even though he left us to wander off on our own where he didn’t need to guide us so we could spend more time on what we wanted.

Monaco, Monte Carlo and Eze Half-Day Trip Reviewed by Nicola, 09/11/2018

Out of time? 5 days sightseeing crunched into 1

This was one the best tours we ever did. Cannes, Monaco, Monte Carlo and 4 more locations have made it in an epic tour. John our driver and tour guide is a genius. Not only he speaks 4 languages but his knowledge of the region and his character added to the experience for the day. We totally recommend this tour for sure you will make lots of memories and pictures.

Full-Day French Riviera Small Group Trip Reviewed by Andrei, 09/10/2018

A great introduction to an amazing part of the world!!

If you are new to Cote d'Azur then this tour is a great eye opener to a beautiful part of France. Four stops in all taking in Eze, the Fragonard Parfumeur, Monaco castle and Monte Carlo casino building. Each stop having just about the right time to take in all to see. Tour guide (Jenna) was excellent and we had the added benefit of a small group (only 5 of us). Book it!!!
