“straight out of the movies...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2014 NEW

Monte Carlo is not to be missed...I felt like I was part of a James Bond movie, complete with fast cars, big yachts, and the smell of money in the air (figuratively speaking of course!)

“Check out the fake building facades.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2014 NEW

A few cafes dot the square but the best thing to see are the facades of all the building facing it. Apart from the balconies, all the features of the buildings are painted on - cute!

“Happy Hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2014 NEW

The Place Garibaldi is traversed by the trams and a busy road, but is so large you can sit at a cafe in a corner and enjoy watching all the bustle from a distance. If you like beer, go in the early evening and you can get one at a considerably reduced price; happy hour is usually 5pm-8pm or thereabouts, and you need to look at the boards to see which drinks are on offer.

“Busy but fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2014 NEW

A great place to stop and take a coffee and people watch! Be careful of the streets leading to the port they are a tad dodgey to say the least! You can access the tram, hop on hop off bus, Museum f modern art and lots more from here.

“Great plaza/square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2014 NEW

Beautiful, old square that is lively and full of restaurants, cafes, and plenty of activity. Great place to explore in the old town.
