A day in Monte Carlo

Monte Carlo Monaco _ Matea In Wonderland

Monte Carlo, here we go again. As I wrote couple of blogs about Monte Carlo in general, this time I will write how to spend a day as a tourist. The most interesting things to see in my opinion. 

Spending the whole day just walk in Monaco would be enough, as it is a really pleasant walk from the Casino to Oceanographic Museum, but I will write couple of attractions to involve in your list.

Musée Océanographique de Monaco – Must go.  Imagine aquarium with 6m-deep lagoon where you can see sharks and all sorts of fishes, coral reefs…

Casino de Monte Carlo – One of the oldest casinos. Very beautiful. Don´t loose all the money tho.  It is open to visitors every morning, and it is a extraordinary example of belle-epoque architecture.

Le Rocher – Monaco Ville, also called Le Rocher, is the only part of Monaco to have retained its original old town, complete with small, windy medieval lanes. You can walk to there from the city center.

Marche de la Condamine – Not everything good has to be expensive. For tasty food hit Monaco’s fabulous market food court, tucked beneath the arches behind the open-air market stalls on place d’Armes.

Cathedrale de Monaco – Beautiful Romanesque-Byzantine cathedral.

Palais Princer de Monaco – Built as a fortress atop Le Rocher in the 13th century, this palace is the private residence of the Grimaldi Family. Carabiniers du Prince are protecting this place very well, and in the same time looking nice with their blue and white outfits.

Cafe De Paris – The iconic cafe with a direct view on the casino and all the beautiful cars.

Yes, there is time to do everything from the list. Don´t forget Monaco is quite small and everything is on walking distance. For the end, some pictures from this amazing day.
