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.

A wonder full of wonders

A wonder full of wonders Editors' Note

An international reputation for excellence, this is what the Oceanographic Museum is noted for. No better hallmark of marine science and oceanography exists in the world actually. Collections here collected by Prince Albert I are just a fraction of the wonder visitors will experience.

The world-famous Aquarium here is home to some of the rarest species of fish and marine life in the world. Some 90 pools offer a rather grandiose display and perspective of the undersea world. Be sure and take in the Shark Lagoon among the many such enchantments.
