7 reasons why we love Monaco

7 reasons why we love Monaco

Monaco, the small, independent city-state on France’s Mediterranean coastline, is a brilliant holiday destination.  Offering a mild climate throughout the year, with an average of 24*C in the summer months and up to 14 hours of sunshine, it’s actually a great place to travel to all-year round.

The winter months naturally drop to an average of 12*C with six hours of sunshine each day – but with so many indoor attractions and activities, you’re still promised a brilliant break on the western European country.

We love Monaco – check out our top seven reasons why we think you will too!

1. Monte-Carlo

The region of Monte-Carlo is a must-visit on your holiday, located between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea. Home to the renowned Monte Carlo Casino and Casino Square, a beautiful landmark in the city, offering a pretty water fountain, pretty landscapes and nearby shops, cafes and bars, a holiday to the country wouldn’t be complete without the exploration of this major Monacan district.

2. Jardin Exotique de Monaco

The botanical garden of Jardin Exotique de Monaco is another reason why we love Monaco – located on a cliffside, the garden is a gorgeous place to visit on your holiday here, offering stunning views and fantastic picnic opportunities! The garden, which opened in 1933, brings together a wide variety of exotic plants in beautiful open-air surroundings.

3. The Oceanographic Museum

The Oceanographic Museum is a brilliant museum dedicated to marine sciences in Monaco-Vile, home to an excellent collection of various species of underwater animals, from starfish to sharks. You can also find model ships and sea animal skeletons in the popular attraction, which is charmingly located rising from a Cliffside rock.

4. Pretty beaches

Monaco is home to an array of pretty beaches, most of which are man-made but still fantastic to visit due to the country’s scenic Mediterranean coastline. Larvotto Beach is a popular stretch of man-made beach at the east end of the country’s coastline, slightly pebbled with soft sands. The Larvotto area is actually made up of a handful of private and public beaches, surrounded by brilliant cafes and restaurants to enjoy.

5. Port de Fontvieille

The well-preserved Port de Fontvieille harbour is a popular attraction for tourists to Monaco, offering gorgeous views of the harbour, as well as a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants on the peaceful waterfront.

6. Monaco Grand Prix

Monaco is renowned for hosting the Monaco Grand Prix Formula One motor race every year, on the Circuit de Monaco. The motor race is widely considered to be one of the most prestigious automobile races in the world, held on a narrow course on the streets of Monaco. Being witness to this exciting and exhilarating race would be an unforgettable experience on your Monacan holiday!

7. Cathédrale de Monaco

Built in 1875 on the site of a 13th century church dedicated to Saint Nicolas, the Monaco Cathedral is a must-see on your holiday to the country. The beautiful, Romanesque piece of architecture lies on the Avenue Saint-Martin, close to the Port de Fontvielle.
