Monaco is a destination like no other. It is the second smallest country in the world and yet absolutely filled with extravagant sights. Monaco’s casino, the Monte Carlo, is the iconic building of Monaco and probably one of the landmarks most familiar to you when thinking of the French Riviera.
For the racing fanatics, Monaco is a given holiday destination. With the Monaco Grand Prix of Formula 1 races in May, Monaco comes alive with yachts and those travelling to see the races.
The Rock of Monaco hosts Monaco-Ville, the oldest of Monaco’s four quarters. Although you can always expect glitz and glamour in Monaco, the old town of Monaco has its own unique character. Stroll through the winding street where you will come up to the Prince’s Palace of Monaco in the main square.
The gastronomy of Monaco speaks for itself. With a plethora of fine dining options to choose from, you might spend more time off-board tasting the decadent flavours at every meal. Take a seat at the famous Fairmont Monte Carlo which overlooks the dazzling Mediterranean sea. Make your way back on board at the Hercule Harbour, which is home to some of the most stunning yachts in the world.
The Larvotto neighborhood of Monaco contains Monaco’s beach, Larvotto Plage. There are two sections of this beach—public and private, you can take a dip in the Mediterranean Sea. Perhaps you wish to sail over to Marquet beach, located just past Monaco’s most westerly edge, which is another gorgeous option. With the freedom to cruise wherever you please, there are plenty of dazzling anchorage sites where you can begin your day watching the sunrise on the sundeck of your luxury charter yacht.
