Monaco is a study in contrasts: on the one hand serene and quietly elegant, on the other, adrenaline-charged and exciting. Experience the Principality in royal fashion during a bespoke itinerary designed to show you Monaco and Monte Carlo at their magical best.
Begin with a guided visit to the Prince’s Palace. The official residence of Prince Rainier's son and successor, Prince Albert II, and his family, it has been the home of the Grimaldi family since the end of the 13th century. Discover the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception (also known as Saint Nicholas Cathedral), the main church of the Archdiocese of Monaco and the burial site of many of the many of the Grimaldis, including Grace Kelly and, more recently, Rainier III. Take time to explore the wonderful Oceanographic Museum, led for many years by the famous explorer Jacques Cousteau.
Across the port from La Rocher, discover the “other” Monaco at the Casino Square in Monte-Carlo. Indulge in a Michelin-starred restaurant at Alain Ducasse’s legendary Louis XV, or opt for a more casual lunch at the Café de Paris, a stone’s throw from the Casino. Spend the afternoon experiencing the thrill of Formula 1 racing as you follow the Grand Prix circuit in a top-of-the-line Ferrari, or choose the more leisurely option of browsing the city’s beautiful boutiques in the company of a personal shopper.
With Monte Carlo as your base, spend leisurely days discovering the sun-drenched coastline, following Les Trois Corniches from Monaco to Nice. Take an afternoon to explore the Bellet appellation controllée north of Nice, sampling the little-known organic reds, whites and rosés unique to this region: Braquet, Folle Noire, Grenache, Rolle. Spend a day sailing from the port of Monaco to Cannes or Saint-Tropez, then return to Monte-Carlo in the evening to try your luck at the Casino, or opt for a night of star-studded dancing in the city’s hottest clubs.
