Monaco: Monte Carlo

TravelPage.com Rating:Four Stars

View of Monte Carlo Harbor Although it has a reputation as being very expensive and very exclusive, Monte Carlo can be fun for almost anyone if you spend the time to look around. Nestled on the hills of Southern France, Monte Carlo is one of the most beautiful places you will ever visit. While you can see most of the principality in a single day, we recommend you stay overnight because Monte Carlo takes on a kind of magical quality after dark.

There are lots of ways to get to Monte Carlo. We like to take the train from either Italy or France. The train station is very small and if you are traveling off-hours the stop could be very brief so stay alert. You can also get there by plane if you fly to Nice and take either a train, taxi (not recommended), or helicopter (recommended if you have the money) into Monaco.

When you get there, we recommend you check into your hotel, get settled and then plan to spend at least one half of a day walking about exploring. The principality is only one mile square and public transportation (the bus) will get you almost anywhere. Taxi's are expensive and really not worth the price since everything is within walking distance.

We like to stay at the Beach Plaza ( 22 avenue Princess Grace, Tel: FAX: ) which is one of the few hotels located on Monte Carlo's only beach. It's not as convenient as some of the more famous hotels such as the Metropole Palace , the Hotel de Paris, or the Monte Carlo Grand Hotel (12 ave. des Spélugues - Tel: but you can get to most anyplace in a matter of minutes.

If you decide to take the walking tour, start on the West side of town and proceed East. This will take you up the hills towards the famous city center and the casinos and will eventually take you to the harbor, yacht club, Palace and Oceanographic Museum perched high on a hill. You might also want to visit the Cathedral of Monaco which was built in 1875.

If you decide to visit the "world famous" Grand Casino, make sure you either know the Prince, are a celebrity, or have a lot of money if you expect to get beyond the slot machines in the main hallway. If you want to gamble you are probably better off visiting the Lowes Casino although once you're inside it's just like any casino you'll find in Atlantic City or Vegas.

British Air, Air France and a number of other European airlines fly to Nice. For additional information about Monte Carlo visit the Monaco Tourist Office or contact the Monaco Government Tourist and Convention Bureau, 845 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10022, Tel. 212.759.52.27 - Fax 212.754.9320
