Holidays to Monaco

Monaco is the second-smallest country in the world, but don’t let its size deter you from its shedload of culture, scenic sights, and delightful Mediterranean weather. The principality is as a charming as a fairy tale with its famous royal family, stunning backdrop of mountains, and view of the gorgeous French Riviera. Monaco is perhaps best known for its Formula One racing tracks and glamorous casinos, but there is much more waiting to be discovered on Monaco holidays. Whether you want to spend the day admiring vintage cars, discovering marine life, or trying your hand in its spectacular casinos, tiny Monaco provides grand, high-class entertainment.

Marvellous Monaco

Some people go on Monaco holidays for the yacht clubs, fancy restaurants and casinos, while others come looking to explore the Old Quarter, Monaco-Ville, or take in the beautiful landscape. Then there are those who choose to visit the principality purely for its fantastic shopping. Whatever your reasons to visit, there are ideal hotels for you in Monaco. Stay in elegant hotels near lively Monte Carlo in Les Fleurs or St. Michel, or look out over the Port Hercule from Moneghetti. You’ll no doubt find that Monaco is quite unlike any other Mediterranean destination, and enjoy a surreal blend of ancient architecture and stylish modern structures of this charming country.

Tiny Country with Great Charm

If you love racing cars, then the first pit-stop should be the Grand Prix Formula One racetrack. Experience the thrill by following Monaco’s famous twisting streets, at a slower pace of course. Or better yet, carefully schedule your Monaco holidays and see the hair-raising event first-hand. The roaring engines and delighted crowds will keep both kids and parents smiling for weeks. Car-enthusiasts will also love Prince Rainier III’s collection of over 100 antique cars.

The grand Oceanic Museum will also keep the whole family entertained. Inside you will find a shark lagoon, piranhas, a 90-foot whale skeleton, and more marine life. You can also travel back in time with a visit to the Observatory Prehistoric Cave, where there are some ancient cave stalagmites and stalactites to be examined.

For some family fun or a romantic retreat, pay a visit to Monaco’s stunning beaches. The most popular include Monte Carlo and Larvotto, where exhilarating activities such as banana-boating, windsurfing, jet-skiing, and boat-peddling entertain all water-lovers. Another must, which the children will appreciate, is a visit to the chocolate store; the Monaco royals love their chocolate!
