Luxurious Monte Carlo & Monaco City

“City of glamour, luxury and gambling!”

We had four days in glamorous Monte Carlo during Monte Carlo Rolex Masters and this is what we got up to and the places we visited.


I absolutely fell  in love with Monte Carlo. The city is the perfect mix of the excitement of city life with quiet old town charm. Monte Carlo, the central quarter of the principality of Monaco, is the top place for the rich and famous. Not only it is one of the most expensive and exclusive shopping locations in the world, as well offers stunning views, gorgeous beaches and fabulous food. What else can you ask for when you are on vacation? Here are some ideas for your next trip:

Casino de Monte Carlo is the epicentre of all things haute in Monte Carlo and it’s also known for it’s famously feature in the James Bond movies Never Say Never Again and Golden Eye.

We spent one day in “The Rock” and believe me it is enough. It took us around 3 hours to wander and get lost through the city.  It is very easy to walk around and you definitely don’t need a guided tour of this petit city.
The highlights of Monaco City are for sure Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Oceanographic Museum, Jardin Exotique de Monaco and the main attraction Prince’s Palace, which is the official residence of Albert II, Prince of Monaco.
