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

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

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

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

A great way to get an overview of the Riviera in one day.

A convenient and comfortable way to discover the beauty of the area, with stunning views, an interesting tour of the Fragonard perfume factory, good company mixing with a variety of nationalities. Best of all, an engaging, flexible and upbeat driver, who made every effort to maximize the enjoyment for the whole group and spoke English and French fluently. Just feel the number of places covered in the tour is too ambitious in view of the level of traffic and the infrastructure of the region. Furthermore, the number of tourists in Monaco was very high due to a cruise ship in the harbour. There's nothing the driver could have done about this. He did everything possible to make the day very enjoyable. The day was extremely good value and we met interesting people.

Make sure you exchange your QR code for tickets

Thought this was a fun experience, it would be useful if Get Your Guide could clearly tell people they need to use their QR code to get tickets in advance of boarding. We only found out as a lady in the queue told us! Otherwise we probably would have missed the boat. There is NO information telling you this, and it was a lengthy wait at the ticket office to get the paper tickets. I don’t know why they don’t accept the QR code in this day and age - it’s archaic the way they run the ticketing system.

Well worth the time and money for a comprehensive tour of Monaco.

Renault was very knowledgeable of the area, its history and the residents. Every minute of the four hour tour was jam packed with history and relevant trivia. There was an obligatory stop at the perfume factory tour that should have been shorter to allow more time in Eze- a charming historical village on a hill. But, overall, this was a fabulous and breathtaking experience.
