All About Monaco
Nestled in the mountains amongst the picture-perfect towns of the French Riviera and less than 15 kilometres from Nice, Monaco is a tiny city-state synonymous with luxury. Extravagance exudes from the yachts, glamorous events, and stratospherically priced real estate. Defined geographically by rugged hills and a narrow coastline along the Mediterranean Sea, the city — just under a square mile in size — is divided into four distinct areas that, as a whole, feel like a much bigger place.
Perched on a promontory high above the sea, the Old Town is a network of winding cobblestone streets and alleyways lined with brightly coloured houses. Monte Carlo, the city-state’s major commercial district, has one of the highest concentrations of shops in Europe. The lively produce market in La Condamine fills the air of Place d’Armes with the aroma of fresh fruit. You can also check out the port area of Fontvieille, which is full of high-end yachts and sailboats.
The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Monaco
Thanks to the warm Mediterranean climate, there is no bad time to secure a Monaco villa. Summer provides the perfect weather for a beautiful day by the water. Larvotto Beach is the closest to Monte Carlo, and one of the most popular stretches of sand in Monaco. Bear in mind that this is one of the busiest times of the year, particularly in May, when Monaco hosts a world-renowned motor race.
The shoulder seasons of spring and autumn are also warm, making this a great time to take part in outdoor activities like visiting the Exotic Garden, where cacti and succulents decorate the cliffs overlooking Monaco. In the spring, there are plenty of festivals in and around Monaco. The Fête du Citron, or Lemon Festival in Menton, about 30 minutes away, celebrates the end of winter with exhibitions, fireworks, street dancing, and parades featuring colourful floats.
Autumn can be slightly rainier than other seasons, so pack a waterproof layer if you visit in October or November. The winters are mild: a light winter coat will suffice in January, which is also one of the quietest times of the year.
Top things to do in Monaco
The glitz and glamour that epitomize the district of Monte Carlo have become symbolic of the city-state and can be found in numerous Hollywood films and works of literature throughout the years. Nestled in the rolling green hills north of Port Hercule, Monte Carlo is home to entertainment, designer shops, and some of the city’s most beautiful architecture.
Monaco Top Cars Collection
Located in the corner of the Fontvieille area, this private collection of more than 100 cars was begun in the 1950s by a Monaco prince. After it outgrew its private home, the collection was moved to the Terrasses de Fontvieille and opened to the public. The selection includes a range of automobiles, including early-20th-century car ancestors, 1960s classics, and famous racing cars.
Monaco Old Town
Located high on a hill above the port, the Old Town offers a mix of pastel-coloured houses, narrow streets lined with French- and Italian-style buildings, and the Museum of Old Monaco. This neighborhood is also where you’ll find the immense 18th-century-style Prince’s Palace, home to the Prince of Monaco. Along with a taste of pre-20th-century life, Old Town offers gorgeous views over the city skyline and the Mediterranean Sea.
