Soak up the sun in the French Riviera
Nothing quite says luxury like the French Riviera, or, as it is locally known, the Côte d'Azur, which offers unspoiled beaches right along the Mediterranean coastline from the Italian Riviera to the stunning views of Saint-Tropez. The French Riviera has been a popular tourist resort since the 18th century when wealthy Brits would come to enjoy winter holidays, but now offers something for those from all walks of life, from couples to families.
Experience the thrills of Monte Carlo’s casinos
As one of the most decadent regions in the world, it goes without saying that Monaco has its own range of high-end casinos, including the world famous Monte Carlo casino. Nowadays, with sites like Mr Smith Casino cropping up more and more often, many of us choose to play at online alternatives which can provide a great diversion, particularly if you’re visiting with children. If it’s adults-only however, don’t forget to walk around the grounds and check out the casino’s thriving nightlife.
Take a stroll through the old town of Monaco-Ville
After all that excitement in the casinos, you’ll enjoy the opportunity to walk through some of the quieter, less modern parts of Monaco. The old town of Monaco-Ville provides beautiful photo moments and the chance to get fit by walking around its rocky headlands. Take a look around the Prince’s Palace or just sample some of the local cuisine, giving you an authentic taste of the real Monaco.
Bask in the Exotic Garden of Monaco
Fans of all things Mother Nature will love the cliff-side views of the Jardin Exotique de Monaco, which features a plethora of different flora and fauna. It’s a great day out for the kids too, who can enjoy the Anthropology Museum and the Observatory Cave. Just make sure you’re wearing comfortable shoes, have enough water for everyone, and protect yourself from the sun!
Brag to your friends about the French Grand Prix
It wouldn’t be fair to write about Monaco without mentioning its Grand Prix event. Attracting racing fans, celebrities and even royals, the event is so exciting partly because of its risk factor. As today’s finest F1 drivers course around the city, spectators are closer to the event than any other – guaranteeing three days of heart-stopping fun.
