“How the other 0.01 % live!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

A resplendant walk along the harbour side hosting the largest display of boating opulence (and their private parked RRs, Bentleys and Masseratis) that the public is likely to encounter up front.
Fantastic ice creams along the way and visit the Tabac on the corner to get a great history of this F1 corner.

“Good Views of Boat Luxury”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

I found this a bit more interesting than the cars. While walking around the harbor you can have a look at some of the decks. Some have jacuzzi s and some have patios or jet skis mounted. It is a bit of voyeurism to peek inside each from the views above the harbor. You can see the deck hands cleaning or preparing some fresh fruit for the owners/renters. Some have a small bar with comfortable couches and others have modern furniture that look sleek and fashionable only. Others are completely walled in by one way glass.

There are cafes around the harbor that will allow you to watch all the goings-on and admire the beauty of the boats.

Some boats which are still large in their own right are small compared to some of the mega yachts. It is a place where a multimillionaire can feel poor.

“Take a stroll”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

This is the thumping heart of Monaco/Monte Carlo and makes for an impressive stroll along its docks/esplanade with its gigantic super-yachts. There are cafe's/bistro's alongside where we popped in for some drinks to simply take it all in and soak up the sun. We also happened to visit the week before Formula 1 so we were fortunate enough to walk this part of the circuit which was quite exciting to be honest :)

“Great Harbour, Wonderful Views'”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

On our recent stay in the South of France we took a trip over to Monte Carlo and we just love the atmosphere and the views here. We were there 2 weeks after the Grand Prix and they were still pulling down all of the stands etc from the race, however you are free to walk everywhere which is great. Lots and lots of lovely yachts and boats in the harbour, so a great place just to go for a walk around.
