VISITING MONACO MONTE CARLO
Despite being nestled between the crisp blue waters of the French Riviera and the towering Alps, Monaco has a lot to offer those visiting.
It is primarily known for the Monaco Grand Prix, a race that has been held in the principality annually since 1929. Enthusiasts flock to the "Circuit de Monaco" every May to witness the greatest automobile racers take to the streets for glory. Be part of the circuit legend with our Grand Prix inspired clothing range.
But there is much more to Monaco than just F1. In fact, most visitors don't even know what else is on offer and even if they did one might think it was impossible to see everything the princedom has to offer. Thankfully, this is not the case. Monaco Tours gives you the chance to see it all and gain a wider appreciation of the magnificent coastal city.
The tour starts and ends outside the Oceanographic Museum, beautifully rising out of the mythical rock of Monaco the museum has watched over the oceans for more than a century and is known as the "temple of the sea". The tour itself will take you around Monaco to enjoy the sights of the major attractions. Through the train's panoramic roof your view of the gigantic luxury yachts that line Port Hercules will be unimpeded before travelling into Monte Carlo where you will see the world famous Monte Carlo Casino.
Then to experience the quieter side of Monaco you will visit the medieval Old Town and bask in the rich cultural history of the Prince's Palace and discover the superb architecture of the Saint Nicholas Cathedral.
And all while travelling on parts of the Grand Prix Circuit de Monaco. So visiting fans of the F1 race will see Monaco like racers have for 85 years.
And if that wasn't enough, the whole tour is only 30 minutes long, meaning you have the rest of the day to return to any of the locations that interested you and experience them fuller. Chase your fortune at the Monte Carlo Casino or learn about the history in the museum in the Prince's Palace or Oceanographic museum or the, walk the medieval streets of the Old Town or simply relax and take advantage of the stunning views out across the Mediterranean. All thanks to Monaco Tours.
