Visited for the Jazz festival one evening. A bit different to the seedy dives I normally frequent to watch bands. Nevertheless had a great night in a fabulous setting. A beautiful building worth a visit, especially if you get to see it in use.

We did not experience the inside of this magnificent building. But if the inside is anything like the outside, it is quite simply stunning, the architecture is unbelievable.

another attraction was to enjoy the ballet, which was performed in the same building that houses the casino. once you step inside you are transported back to another era. the room where the ballet, as well as opera is performed, is faced with gold glitter, with the two royal boxes on either side. the seats we had were unbelievable- FIRST...

This is a site you have to see in Monaco when you are visiting. Just near the casino, it and the buildings around will give you many opportunities to say WOW!! and take photos!
