Monte Carlo Travel Guide

Things to do in Monte Carlo

Monte-Carlo offers a lot more than just striking natural beauty, it also features some historical and modern attractions sure to keep visitors of all persuasions happy. With a Mediterranean climate, Monte-Carlo is pleasant all year round, though winters can sometimes be a little chilly, and summers very crowded. The city is fairly easy to navigate your way around, once you know the short cuts.

There is plenty to see and do here. Head to the Oceanographic Museum and Aquarium to see Prince Albert''s personal collection of marine life or just visit the 4,000 fish in the aquarium, as well as the Shark Lagoon. Visit the Prince''s Palace, which was established in the 13th century and has been the residence of the Grimaldi family ever since, where 15 rooms are open to the public, including the throne room, or check out the magnificent Monaco Cathedral which houses the tombs of the late Princess Grace and former princes of Monaco.

Big spenders should spend some time making or blowing their fortune at the Monte-Carlo casino, or if that''s too much for you, enjoy relaxing in the Jardin Exotique where the thousands of plants will amaze green-fingered travellers, or spend an afternoon marvelling at the fabulous yachts in La Condamine, one of Monaco''s oldest districts, where you can even spend some time browsing through the Condamine Market.
