Visit Casino de Monte Carlo

No trip to Monaco is complete without a visit to the ultra-grand Casino de Monte Carlo, one of the most famous casinos in the world.

Built in the flamboyant, glitzy Beaux-Arts style in 1893, the casino is well worth visiting, even if you’re not a gambler.

On entry, you’ll be blown away by the extravagant and ornate style and the vast amounts of money being wagered on roulette, poker, blackjack and Trente et Quarante, a French 17th-century card game.

Purchase a drink or two at the bar as you take in the views of one of Europe’s finest buildings, admiring the sparkling chandeliers and stunning artworks.

Explore beautiful Nice

Even if you’re not staying in Nice, it’s still worth visiting this iconic French seaside town, just 14 miles from Monaco. Overlooking the pristine cerulean waters of the Baie des Anges, Nice has inspired visitors and artists for decades.

Be sure to take a stroll through the charming Vieille Ville (Old Town), with it’s narrow winding streets, colourful buildings, and the grand Castle Hill overlooking the city.

Soak in the city’s vibrant culture, relaxed atmosphere and old-world charm as you pass bustling flower markets and buzzy cafes on the cobblestone streets.

The Marché aux Fleurs is a traditional Provençal flower market in the Vielle Ville, and another must-visit is the palm-fringed Promenade des Anglais along Nice’s pretty beaches, the perfect spot for a relaxed stroll.

Modern and ancient culture lovers rejoice, as Nice is home to some impressive museums and art galleries. Amble through the likes of the Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain, Galerie Jean Renoir, Musée Matisse and Musée National Message Biblique Marc Chagall.

Indulge in the Local Food Scene

Monaco offers a diverse range of food options from traditional brasseries and bistros to Michelin-starred establishments.

The city-state is home to a blend of cultures, which shows in the cuisine. Enjoy everything from French, Italian and fusion dishes in all types of eateries.

La Condamine Market originally opened back in 1880, and is a favourite among locals and visitors. Choose dishes including Monégasque specialities like barbagiuan. This yummy appetizer is a fritter packed with Swiss chard and ricotta, among other ingredients. Enjoy one under the shade of an arcade as you people-watch in the market.

For a meal to remember, book a table at Mada One to tuck into chef Marcel Ravin’s menu featuring French breakfast favourites like crumbly, buttery pain au chocolat and eggs benedicte as well as tasty lunch specials, including colourful salads and scrumptious pasta dishes.

Another Michelin star restaurant to visit is Yoshi, where chef Takeo Yamazaki treats guests to Japanese cuisine, including delicious sushi and maki, all lovingly created with Yoshi (kindness).
