Where to stay in Monte-Carlo

Monte Carlo is known as one of Europe's most luxurious destinations, and the choice of places to stay largely reflects this reputation, with historical hotels acting as the city's most notable landmarks. Monte Carlo's modest size limits the amount of available lodgings, but it guarantees that wherever you decide to stay, you'll be close to the city's main attractions. For a full VIP experience, book a stay at one of the exclusive hotels. If you're looking for a more cost-effective option, check out accommodations just on the other side of the French border, in what are effectively Monte Carlo's suburbs.

  • We parked in the parking of the museums of Monaco some floors below. Diversity of sea creatures and a lot of info in the aquarium. Our 3yr olds were​ much interested too.The museum is very nice too but we didn't spend much time there because we had it all in the aquarium. On the roof the view is super. there is a restaurant (check the time of the kitchen time) with an island for turtles and a play yard for children.
  • Great museum that gets you out of the sun for a bit. Ticket vending machines were not working with credit card, but the line was not long so it was fine. There's a beautiful park just next to it and the views of the coast and city walking up there are fabulous as well.
  • We were drawn into the museum by a statue out front. It was part of an art exhibit called Borderline that coexist with the natural history. It was excellent. We had no issues and the museums was not busy for a Sunday afternoon at 1pm. The building itself and its views are worth the 12 euro admission.
  • amazing aquarium with full of colorful fishes. The view nearby is fantastic too. To be recommended for everyone between 7-77years!
  • An excellent museum. Great place to bring children as they will love it! However also great for adults too!
