How to enjoy Monaco

Monaco was first brought to the attention of the wider world when darling of the silver screen, Grace Kelly, married into royalty and became Prince Grace of Monaco. The miniature principality, (it barely stretches to a square mile), knows how to do luxury well

  • A quick guide: Monte Carlo is a district of Monaco (like Manhattan in NYC or Mayfair in London); now join the cognoscenti who know
  • For exquisite upscale shopping, browse the stores of Cercle d’Or, Avenue de Monte-Carlo, Avenue des Beaux Arts and the Allées Lumières
  • For three Michelin-Star dining, make a reservation for Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse, the signature restaurant of the elegant Hotel de Paris

From the fairy tale gilt and stucco of the cliff top Prince’s Palace to the marble and chandeliers of the casino, extravagance abounds. Monaco is a playground of the wealthy and home to Greek shipping magnates, multinational oil millionaires and celebrity A listers such as Ringo Starr, Roger Moore and Novak Djokovic, possibly drawn by the guarantee of excellent service and wonderful Mediterranean weather.

One of the best ways to arrive in Monaco is by yacht. Moor in Port de Fontvielle for wonderful views of the cliffs climbing high up the steep-sloped principality. Perhaps the best address in town, especially during the annual Monaco Grand Prix that races around the streets of Monte Carlo and traces the harbor’s edge, is aboard a yacht in Port Hercule. Failing that, do as the locals do and fly in to the Monte Carlo Heliport.
