Hooked on shopping ? Spend the Whole Day Shopping
Through the little streets of the old town
where shopkeepers display their typical souvenir objects, to the shopping malls
of the Métropole, to Park Palace (which locals call Les Allées Lumières), or
the new One Monte-Carlo district, the biggest names in fashion, haute couture,
perfumery and jewellery can be found in the Principality in case you were
looking to go on a bit of a shopping spree ...
talking about shopping, the name of the Principality of Monaco is inseparable
from the famous "Carré d'Or," where elegant shops with prestigious brands stand. With the opening of the new One Monte-Carlo district, located right in the heart of Monaco,
the promenade has become the most exclusive of the Riviera and offers you the
chance to wander through the biggest names in fashion and their latest
creations. Nearby, is the Zara store, which is ready to welcome you again after
months of work renovating the shop, located in Monaco since 2005. Art lovers
will also find what they are looking for at the big names in antiques and
the gardens of the Casino, the « Metropole Shopping Monte-Carlo » houses more than 80 shops in a chic, on-trend
and relaxed atmosphere, for a clientele looking for brands that are subtle and
a bit quirky. In this Belle Epoque inspired setting, do not think twice about
taking a gourmet break at the Met Café under the majestic Bohemian crystal
chandelier or enjoy a pastry at the famous Pierre Hermé shop.
If you want to continue your purchases, it is
time to go along the Boulevard des
Moulins, Boulevard d'Italie and the Avenue Princesse Grace. There, the
"Refined Windows" are well named. For your pleasure, there is a
series of clothing shops of on-trend designers, as well as high-end, decorative
and interior accessories. The local traders - Façonnable, IKKS, Ralph Lauren,
Aubade, Fashion For Floor or Baby Dior, etc. - will welcome you and advise you
with a warm smile and expertise.

Condamine » (La Condamine Shopping Centre) is the most diverse in the Principality.
Its many shops are waiting just for you. The pedestrian area of Rue Princesse
Caroline will allow you to buy in complete peace, in a place where pedestrians
have overtaken cars. The district houses shops with very varied concepts:
