  • Monaco gives for more than one day if several of its sites are visited. This is one of his strong points. It's the personal vehicle of the Principe, collection in perfect state of conservation, all in a position to be used, and exposed to the delight of fans. In my case, I have no special interest in the world of motoring, and I loved the Museum. It is common to find some vehicles (in use, maintenance, etc) are missing, but there are real gems of history.

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.
