Visit three countries in one day

Take advantage of the Principality’s exceptional location and discover three countries during your stay! 

If you reach Monaco from the mountains and the village of La Turbie, you can stop to admire the Trophy of Augustus, erected over 2,000 years ago. Then, you can follow the road made famous by Grace Kelly and Cary Grant in Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief, as they picnic while admiring the view over the Principality. Then, once in Monaco, you can begin your stay at Hôtel Fairmont Monte-Carlo (****). The valet will take care of your vehicle to let you settle quickly in your room with a terrace from which to admire Italy on your left, France on your right and Monaco at your feet.

For your first exotic evening, go to the Gaia restaurant to sample their Mediterranean cuisine of Greek inspiration. The ‘blue hour’ is the time for a few minutes stroll to the French border, where you can have fun moving freely from one country to the other on the few metres separating Monaco from Roquebrune-Cap-Martin (in France), somewhere between the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort (****) and the Monte-Carlo Beach (*****).

On the next morning, you can head for Èze-sur-Mer to visit its famous Fragonard or Galimard perfumeries to learn all about this delicate ancestral craft. You can even create your own personal fragrance and take it with you on your ascent to the peak with the Castle ruins for lunch.

The afternoon will take you to Italy: San Remo, barely a half-hour drive from Monaco, a Ligurian town where you can enjoy a very special, very Italian atmosphere and dine on pasta with seafood, or just pizza you can nibble as you stroll by the sea in the bustling evening ambience.
