Lucky charm of the Riviera

Settled on the craggy shore of the Mediterranean Sea, between enchanting French medieval villages and the ski trails of the Alps, Monte Carlo is an exclusive destination, by no means a place for a budget holiday. Monte Carlo is the ideal place to “hide” your expensive yacht, or to take your Ferrari for a spin without drawing too much attention. The city welcomes you with fine arts, culture, outstanding cuisine, and high-adrenaline activities like the Formula One Grand Prix, casino gaming, land and water sports and exciting nightlife.
