Why not make Monaco your next destination?

Publication date: 17/06/2020
It’s time to enjoy yourself! Monaco is the place for you.

After almost three months of lockdown, we are free again. As we have all seen, life as we know it can come to a sudden and grinding halt. You never know what’s around the corner. So why wait until tomorrow, when you can start living your dreams today? Carpe diem! Seize the day, take full advantage of everything life has to offer, and take the opportunity to discover – or perhaps rediscover – a stunning destination. The Principality of Monaco.

A destination within easy reach 
For a European destination that’s not too far from home, visit the Principality of Monaco and explore its countless hidden delights. We are within a two-hour journey, more or less, from the major European capitals, by air, rail, road, and sea. A sumptuous mix of influences from the French Riviera and Italy’s “Costa dei Fiori” await you. 

You might be forgiven for thinking that Monaco’s splendour is reserved exclusively for an elite group, but that is not the case at all. For proof, sit and sip a coffee in the square by La Condamine market, which you’ll find every morning bustling with stalls selling the most delicious, fresh local produce. It’s an essential part of everyday life for the people of Monaco.

If it’s culture that interests you, there are the plentiful museums offering a host of different ways for curious visitors to expand their horizons, learning while having fun. Over the centuries, great names from the history of architecture have contributed to the Principality’s cultural heritage. When Monte-Carlo was founded, Charles Garnier designed the Casino and Opéra de Monte-Carlo, while the mastermind behind the stunning glass dome at the five-star Hôtel Hermitage was none other than Gustave Eiffel himself.

Take a stroll through the streets, avenues and gardens in the share of centuries-old trees, wander through the charming alleyways of the Old Town, or take in the unrivalled view from the Exotic Garden. You will perhaps be surprised to discover that excellence is by no means unaffordable. It’s possible to savour top-class gastronomy in a Michelin-starred restaurant with a host of fabulous lunch menus at prices that anyone’s purse can stretch to. Ours is a tiny State, nestling between France and Italy, with over seven centuries of Mediterranean influences, culture, cuisine, and art de vivre.

Finally we meet again
With the lockdown now behind us, we need to come together and experience life’s simple pleasures once more. It’s about those fundamental values that have real meaning for us. Getting back in touch with everything we’ve missed, like family and friends. The Principality is the perfect place to savour the finer things in life, in a prestigious environment where everything possible has been done to ensure a level of safety like no other. The Principality of Monaco is without doubt one of the world’s safest destinations. With a ratio of one police officer for every 75 inhabitants, 24 video surveillance across Monaco and the ability to lock down every point of entry into the Principality within minutes. 

Throughout the year, there are highlights and events for everyone. In Monaco, there is something for you, whatever your age or background. All those who come here spend an exceptional experience in our little paradise. Whether you attend a concert, a ballet or a theatre performance. Whether you’re with family or friends, you can visit, relax with a drink or a fine meal, and soak up the sun. With over 300 days of sunshine per year and a temperate Mediterranean climate, conditions in Monaco are ideal all year round. The sun and sea make it a surprisingly varied destination, where you can wake up by the water, spend a day skiing, and dine in the heart of the Principality when evening comes.
