The High Life
Layered in culture, Monaco's locals include Monegasque, Italian, the neighbouring French and a combination of other nationalities. Charter a yacht in Monaco and head to Monte Carlo which sports the most glamorous atmosphere combined with stunning natural beauty. Views from the rocky headland of North Monaco makes for the ideal spot to take in the cuisine and views. Shopping is a must, with the Condamine Market offering the most picturesque scenery, not to mention the many luxury haute couture fashion brands on offer.
Explore the Palais du Prince in Monaco's Old Town, dating back to 1191, which has been home to the Grimaldi family for over 700 years, and Grace Kelly who married the Prince of Monaco, Rainier III. The world-renowned Philharmonic Orchestra, the opulent Monte Carlo Casino and Monaco Cathedral are top on the must-see list.
In the evening, enjoy some of the region's best restaurants including the triple Michelin-starred Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse à l'Hôtel de Paris, or the double starred Restaurant Joël Robuchon Monte-Carlo in the Hotel Metropole. To welcome in the night, drinks at Niki Beach of the Fairmont Hotel, Le Bar Américain or the famous Blue Gin of the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel are simply a must visit. Of course, the Monte Carlo Casino is famous worldwide for glamour and sophistication.
