“Abeautiful oasis in the heart of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

If you arrive in Monaco by bus from the airport as I did you may well step off by the tourist information office at the north end of the Casino Gardens. Grab a map from the office before heading downhill towards Casino Square and you will pass through the magnificent gardens comprising many exotic trees and shrubs which flourish in this area. Palms and other tropical species offer a peaceful and beautiful landscape but take time to head to your left where a number of decorative fountains offer photo opportunities while cooling the air nicely on a hot day.
Carry on down hill and you will arrive at the front of the famous Monte Carlo Casino. It’s a place where people seem to congregate, probably second only to the harbour, and certainly the place to be seen. Around the back of the Casino are walks which offer more views of the harbour and sea and the entire area is well supplied with expensive cars and watch shops.
Monaco, and Nice also in many ways, has more the feel of Italy than France. Open squares ad café culture this is probably due to their being flipped several times between the two countries over the years – but that said they both feel comfortable with who they now are.

The area around the Grand Casino contains a newer casino, a large outdoor cafe and lots and lots of shops.

“access in a casino with no security control!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

the building is extraordinary.... but there are very few tables to play .... the worth to see is the parked outside, "limousines" and expensive cars

Casino Square is beautiful. Between the parks, fountains, surrounding buildings it was a great place to stroll around any hour of the day.

“Like being in a 007 movie”

This place is featured in so many movies that it was fantastic to be there. The casino and the hotel, the fountains, everything is so beautiful, experience is completed by entering the casino, so give it a try.
