Concierge Recommendations for a Perfect Day Out in Monaco

By Chris Boyle


Monaco’s top concierges share their personal suggestions for the perfect day and weekend




After a generous breakfast in Côté Jardin overlooking the sea, enjoy a walk along the harbor towards the old town of Monaco.

Visit the Oceanographic Museum, and the Cathedral of Monaco, where many choose to pay a solemn visit to the tomb of Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace. Visit the Palace Square to watch the changing of the guard (from April to October). A taxi can take you to the beautiful medieval village of Eze, where the perfume factory is a fascinating place to visit. Head for dinner at Buddha Bar, La Vigie Restaurant during summer only, or one the gastronomic restaurants listed below and carry on into the evening with a live rock band at Moods Music Bar and dancing into the small hours at Jimmy’z.

Stop at the Thermes Marins Monte Carlo Wellness Centre for some luxury pampering. Visit the old city of Monaco, its Palace and the Oceanographic Museum. Alternatively, indulge in a few rounds at Monte Carlo Golf Club (18 holes), tennis at Monte Carlo Country Club and water sports at Monte Carlo Beach Club. Don’t forget to use your exclusive Hôtel de Paris Carte d’Or (Gold Card) for immediate access to the casinos, the Wellness Centre, our exclusive private beach and various other attractions.



Arrive in Monaco by helicopter from Nice Airport and catch a full view of the Principality as you circle to land.

Then settle down at the Columbus Monte Carlo facing the Princess Grace Rose Garden, with a view to the sea in a quiet and green environment. Start the day by visiting the Old Town on the Rock where you can find the Oceanographic Museum, the Cathedral and the changing of the guard in front of the Palace. Eat lunch in one of the typical little restaurants in the old town surrounding the Palace. In the afternoon, stroll along the main harbor, the pit lane of the famous Formula 1 Grand Prix and enjoy a coffee on the Café de Paris terrace, to watch those coming and going from the Casino. In the evening, why not visit the Casino yourself and try your luck at a few of the games? The second day in Monaco can be more relaxed: enjoy the beach at Larvotto, visit one of the interesting Exhibitions at Grimaldi Forum, or go to the Exotic Garden for a stunning view over the Principality.

Enjoy a drink from the Café Llorca, the newly opened and trendy café inside the Grimaldi Forum with incredible sea views.
