France Green Is The New Glam

A great selection of cultural landmarks

Cosmopolitan And World-famous Haven.

With a great selection of cultural landmarks, views of the French Riviera and international casinos, Monaco is a cosmopolitan and world-famous haven.

Of course, it is probably best known for the Grand Prix, but Monaco has more to offer than racing cars. Monaco’s old town boasts olde worlde charm with winding cobbled streets and the Prince’s Palace as well as the Chapel of Mercy, a beautiful example of French baroque architecture that will stop you in your tracks. There’s also the iconic Monaco cathedral which houses the tombs of past rulers including Princess Grace and Prince Rainier. If you visit between September and June, Mass is sung by Les Petits Chanteurs de Monaco and Cathedral Choir; definitely not to be missed. Why not take in a stage play at Fort Antoine, an 18th-century fortress that is now used as an open-air theatre with spectacular views of the harbour.

If you’re a nature lover, Monaco has a lot to tempt you. The Japanese gardens are an oasis of tranquillity in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city and The Exotic Garden of Monaco houses an underground prehistoric cave as well as several million species of succulents and stalagmites and stalactites. The Oceanic Museum/Aquarium has over 6,000 species including the residents of the famous shark lagoon and the living coral reef. If you want to see glowing jellyfish a stone’s throw away from the beautiful shopping district, this is the place for you.

Monaco has museums for all tastes from the Naval Museum, the Prince Albert founded Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology, The Museum of Stamps and Coins and the National Museum of Monaco. If you’re a culture buff, Monaco is definitely worth a visit.
