The harbour is beautiful. It is the central point between the casino and the castle and where you can enjoy fantastic selection of all levels of restaurants offering all sorts of cuisine whilst admiring some very expensive and luxurious boats. We went during a special boat weekend which attracted a lot of international visitors on their super yachts that were... More

Amazing boats, plenty of places to eat, drink though very expensive. Great place to watch the world go by. Easy to get to by bus.

Visited Monte Carlo right before the Grand Prix, so all the guard rails, fencing and bleachers were erected. Walked some of the course, passing the casino and stopping in at high-end stores along the way. The view from the top is priceless. I passed the large grandstand at the end of the harbor on my way to the old town.... More

It's wonderful being in the harbour, see the pool, and think about all the story of that place. I shouldn't miss the Grand Prix in tv ever again!

Pictures of Monte Carlo Harbour with all the super yachts of the rich and famous are kind of synonymous with Monaco, so it's great to be able to spend a couple of hours having a wander around the harbour checking them out. Some people are quite happy to have a chat about their boat/yacht which makes it even more interesting.... More

We climbed up the fortress that protected this land in days gone by. Also went down to the yachts and were invited on board. We learned that the petrol to fuel the boats is very expensive and so many of the boats go around the harbor and that's as far as many go. We also took a boat ride from... More

If you are in Monte Carlo, you may as well take a stroll along the harbour to see the opulent super yachts that are berthed there. There’s an awful lot of money floating on that harbour! It's a nice way to spend an hour of your visit (without spending any money).

nice boat watching but you couldn't use the restaurant due to the fair taking over the harbor - how to spoil what im sure is a fabulous area at other times of the year

Standing above gives you a nice view of French Riviera. There are many yachts along with the view - just amazing. There are many casinos there but still think Las Vegas is the best! Some of the casinos require the admission fees there. The tour guide told us their unemployment rate is zero meaning everyone has a a job, good... More
