Cruise Holiday Travel Guide: Monte Carlo


Monte Carlo – home of the rich and famous and the venue for the world-famous Grand Prix, but that doesn’t mean you have to be royalty to visit. Monte Carlo is a stop on many of our cruises around Mediterranean Europe.

Take a look at some of our latest cruises to Monte Carlo here, or read on to find out more about what the city has to offer.

About Monte Carlo

Located on the warm south coast of France, Monte Carlo offers a fascinating taste of high society. It’s no secret that this place is home to the rich and famous, and it shows – from the stunning harbours to the expensive shops and restaurants.

Take a stroll along the harbours and you’ll see multi-million dollar yachts, not to mention stunning backdrops. And perhaps you’ll feel like a bit of shopping (or more likely window shopping) in one of the many boutique stores and car dealerships.

You might also feel like having a gamble in the Casino de Monte Carlo, a magnificent building built in 1878 by Charles Garnier and refurbished in 2004.

If you’re a sports fan, make sure you don’t miss the fantastic Circuit de Monaco where the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix takes place each year.

And of course you won’t forget the fantastic cuisine in Monaco. It’s not cheap, but you’ll find food cooked by world-renowned chefs in styles from across the globe.

Cruise lines currently offering trips visiting Monte Carlo include Cunard Cruise Line and Norwegian Cruises.
