5 fun things to do during your Monaco travel

The Principality of Monaco might be the second smallest state in the world but it has incredible facilities that will entertain you for the most part. In addition, this tiny nation has a pleasant climate that makes it a popular tourist destination.

Monaco is accessible by railways and it even has its own heliport. The closest airport though is in Nice, France which is just 18 kilometres to the Principality. You can book hotel transfers to get to Monaco or take the public bus from the airport.

If you are looking at Monaco as a travel destination, consider doing these activities to make your stay an unforgettable and exciting one.

Suggested activities

1. Play at the Casino de Monte Carlo

Don't miss this spot if you are in Monaco even if you are not betting or gambling. It's a good place to watch those fancy cars arriving at the front of the casino waiting to be valet parked. Otherwise, play the part and dress up for your night at the casino, short-lived though it might be. Admire the opulence and decadence of the architecture of this casino that put the Principality on the map.

2. Spend a day in Larvotto Beach

Did you party all night? Take it easy for a day and spend a quiet afternoon in Larvotto Beach. Rent a sun lounger and an umbrella. Enjoy the sun! The crystal clear waters beckon and in summer, it's a refreshing dip.

3. Watch the Formula One

The Monaco Grand Prix is an annual car racing event held in the narrow and winding streets of Monaco. Why not be part of the crowds lining up to see an exciting finish to the rally?

4. Indulge in wellness therapy

Treat yourself to a relaxing massage, a thermal bath and other wellness programmes to get you going. Visit the Thermes Marins Monte Carlo Spa and book an aromatherapy session to indulge your senses.

5. Dance the night away

Another Monaco travel tip is to sample the night life in the Principality. Visit some bars and discos. You might have to spend a bit on drinks and admissions but for a few hours, your wallet will survive the blow. After all, you are not in Monaco everyday!

Other options

Or devote a few hours to visit Monaco Palace and Tower, the Place d'Armes, and the Cathedral of Monaco. Whether you're in the Principality for a few days or a week, there are enough fun and stimulating experiences to do during your Monaco travel. Get bold and audacious by plunging into these fun activities that will make your visit a memorable one.
