Soak It All In

Casino Square is the center of the action in Monte Carlo. This is where you can have a seat, a bite to eat, and watch as Lamborghini cars roll by. There is always something happening at Casino Square. Don't come home from Monaco empty handed. Le Metropole Shopping Center is one of the top localspots for high-end and designer goods.

Monaco Excursions

Don’t forget to take some time away from the gorgeous shopping plazas and casinos to hit the sands. Larvotte Beach is one of the best Monaco excursions. We recommend visiting the beach in the morning to avoid the large crowds that form in the afternoon. Take time during your visit to Monte Carlo to check out Monte Carlo Harbor. This is where you can take in lovely views of the water and admire the cavalcade of yachts.
