Monte Carlo Tours & Holidays
Join us on a holiday to Monte Carlo
Monte Carlo has always been associated with glitz and glamour, with high rollers often passing through the city to gamble at casinos and lounge on the white-sand beaches.
The surrounding Principality of Monaco is home to some more traditional holiday attractions, like Monaco Cathedral, the Prince’s Palace, and other cultural institutions, so if you don’t want your Monte Carlo holiday to be entirely about decadence you’re in luck.
The area has plenty to do other than just gambling or sipping cocktails. The Opera de Monte-Carlo, also known as the Salle Garnier, was built by the same architect who designed the Paris Opera House, and the architecture in general is a delight to be surrounded by. Monte Carlo tours can help you on the right track for getting the best out of your trip, whether you want to luxuriate in the shadow of the Hotel du Paris or learn about the history of Monaco.
Because of its wealth Monte Carlo has put a lot back into its public infrastructure, like excellent green spaces and transport links. Monte Carlo escorted tours can help you discover and explore these treasures, such as Jardin Exotique, a botanical garden housing tropical plants from all over the world.
Things to do in Monte Carlo

Without a doubt one of the most aesthetically pleasing museums in the world, Musée Oceanographique sits on a clifftop and is an excellent space to learn about the marine life surrounding Monte Carlo.

Food and Drink in Monte Carlo
Figuring out the best cocktail bar in Monte Carlo is like trying to find the best place in Paris for a croissant.
Everywhere is operating at such a high level it’s near-impossible to choose. Pick any of the bars in the region and sit back with a negroni - or three.
Decadence is the name of the game here, and nothing is classier than a dinner at Le Louis XV Restaurant, a three-starred venue that will deliver a once-in-a-lifetime meal in every sense of the word.
Part fritter but with a slight resemblance to Hellenic/Anatolian pastry dishes, the national dish of Monaco is called Barbajuan, and is truly delicious. The light pastry is filled with ricotta and greens, often accompanied by root vegetables and parmesan, but no matter what the filling, the taste is always divine.
