What to Do In Monaco
Casino de Monte CarloOne of the most famed examples of belle époque architecture in Europe, the casino is awash in marble and gold, glistening by day and night, beckoning you to enter. The building opens to visitors in the mornings and to gamblers (18+ enforced) in the afternoons. Private salons offer exclusivity to high rollers, who frequent the establishment.
Formula One Grand PrixVisit in late May, and you will undoubtedly (Monaco closes practically every street for the race ) witness one of the most highly anticipated sporting events around the world. If you’re not lucky enough to be here for the main event, the circuit is still open to visitors who wish to walk it and imagine the thrill of the race, year-round.
Musée Océanographique de MonacoFounded by Prince Albert in 1910, the picturesque and world famous Musée Océanographique de Monaco is situated on the edge of a cliff. Inside, you’ll find a stunning array of wildlife and educational opportunities for marine enthusiasts. You can’t miss the main lagoon, which houses sharks, tropical fish, and a coral reef.
