“Quite a sight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

We arrived on a cruise ship and had the pleasure of docking in the harbor. I had been to Monoco before but seeing the principality spread out before you is a great view: particularly at dawn. Then you notice the yachts surrounding you. There is a lot of money in the world and some is on display in the form of enormous yachts along the French Riviera. It is worth the effort involved in getting to the foot go this rock and seeing the harbor.

“Interesting place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

On our visit we spent time walking around the roads which become the F1 circuit. This was a good way of seeing quite a bit of the harbour area. It was incredible to think, when walking through the tunnel under the casino, that F1 cars travel through there at over 150mph.

The boats in the harbour as well as the expensive cars parked around the Monte Carlo casino make you feel that you have walked into an other world. The beautiful park next to Casino Square was also worth the effort of walking to.

Beautiful place and worth taking time to visit

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

If you're visiting the south of France make time for a visit to Monte Carlo. Soak up the atmosphere at the famous casino, watching all the fabulous cars pull up. Walk through the tunnel on F1 racetrack and go to the palace to see the changing of the guards and beautiful gardens. Enjoy a meal in the little streets from the palace

“Great boats”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful harbour
Not very big
Fantastic boats especially on Grand Prix day
Great daytrips on train from nice or Italy if you aren't rich and don't want to pay high hotel rates
Makes you feel poor looking at these 25 million euro boats even if you aren't poor

“Monte-Carlo, Monaco in the Morning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Just as the sun is rising, the view of Monte-Carlo Harbour is breathtaking! With very few citizens but very many visitors, this city knows how to look its tourists. Great dining and excellent accommodation are to be expected; but save time for the historic venues and parks which are very accessible to those traveling "par les pieds".
