The Principality of Monaco is the world’s second smallest country (after the Vatican City), covering an area of just under 2 square kilometres. Known for its glamour and wealth, this destination overlooks the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean. Being home to the neighbourhood of Monte Carlo and host to the F1 Monaco Grand Prix in May, this destination attracts many prestigious visitors. For those looking for some high-class evening entertainment, why not visit the Monte Carlo Casino which is famous for appearing in several James Bond movies. Showcasing a gold and marble paved atrium, this architectural delight is a prestigious venue, so don’t forget to bring a photo ID and dress formally. If gambling isn’t your scene, take a visit to Café de Paris in the same square where you can gaze at the Monte Carlo Casino and listen to the
humming engine sounds of Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Bentleys, Rolls-Royces, Aston Martins and every other exclusive supercar you can think of. Alternatively, why not visit the rather charming old town of Le Rocher located on the south side of Monaco where you can view the royal palace. Otherwise known as the Palais Princier, this is the former home of Princess Grace and current home of her son, Prince Albert II. For those interested in Royal history, another impressive monument you should visit it the Monaco Cathedral. Built in 1875 using white stones from La Turbie, this 13th century site is where Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace married and houses tombs of the former Princes of Monaco. As you can see, Monaco has a lot to offer its visitors and what it lacks in size, it makes up for in offering.
