Synonymous with glitz and glamor, this small-town country on the French Riviera is a place loved by the rich, famous, and powerful. Monaco is also home to the most famous casino in the world, which is always surrounded by fast luxury cars such as Ferrari, Bentley or Lamborghini.
Even though the country is small, it offers lots of great tourist attractions and the good news is that you don’t have to have a lot of money to experience them.
Visit the Oceanographic Museum
When visiting Monaco, a visit to the Oceanographic Museum is a must. It was built over a century ago and its beautiful architecture and location are truly breathtaking.
Located on a cliff just above the sea, this museum has thousands of specimens and many amazing exhibits dedicated to marine life.
Luxury shopping session
Monaco is definitely a great place to shop (or window shopping if you prefer) and is full of famous boutiques and upscale shops. The Metropole Shopping Center offers a large selection of jewelry and fashion stores, but also health and beauty salons. Fontvieille shopping center is a great place to shop with ample parking, 36 furniture, fashion and high-tech stores and a variety of restaurants. If you just walk around Monaco, you will often find luxury boutiques like Prada, Dior, Gucci, or Chanel, to name a few.
Visit the Monte Carlo Casino
When I think of Monaco, one of the first things that comes to my mind is of course the famous casino.
Apart from gambling centers, casinos are also one of the most important and attractive tourist attractions. This casino is located in the heart of Monaco, known as Monte Carlo, at the southern end of the Piazza Casino between Hotel Paris and Café Paris. Even if you only spend a few minutes there, immerse yourself in the world of luxurious celebrities – with the most luxurious and expensive cars you can imagine driving right before your eyes.
Enjoy a cocktail by the water in Monaco
End your day in Monaco in a picturesque promenade, where you can enjoy cocktails and steaks while taking in the breathtaking views in front of you. But, there is a way even better to enjoy great drinks and food by the water, and that is renting a boat with yachtrentalmonaco.com and have your private heaven.
There are lots of fantastic bars and pubs that have turned into nightclubs where you can dance and listen to live music.
Parking at night is easy and cheap – you can often park on the roadside for free or use the underground car park for a few euros.
