n recent years, Monaco has undergone a remarkable transformation, particularly around the iconic Monte Carlo Casino. We have seen the Hotel de Paris be completely transformed, the square itself is now much more attractive for pedestrians and the crazy sports cars are still parked in front of the Casino! After years of meticulous urban planning and development efforts, Monaco has become a real destination that I would recommend to our clients, where amidst the glitz and glamour, it’s essential to appreciate the historical significance that permeates Monaco’s streets. From the opulent Belle Époque architecture to the storied tales of royalty and high-stakes gambling, every corner of Monaco echoes with a rich cultural heritage.

A fascinating city to visit, the old part of town on the “rocher” or rock, is where you can discover the splendid Oceanographic Museum, which is a lot more than just an aquarium! (It houses the collections created by Albert I of Monaco during his various research expeditions around the world.)

In the Cathedral you can see the tombs of Grace of Monaco and her husband Rainier III. The Prince's Palace is also worth visiting and if you want to give it an exclusive feel, we can organise a private visit after closing time!

Obviously, we can't forget Monté Carlo where you will discover the Port and of course the legendary Casino. A visit of the main gaming room is possible and if you fancy you can settle yourself at one of the tables and try your luck. We can also access the private tables if serious gambling is requested.

There are also plenty of shopping opportunities in Monaco of the highest calibre with the creme de la creme in fashion, design and jewellery.

"Philip and Judy were instrumental with their other recommendations including the hotel, excursions to Eze, Monaco, and St. Paul de Vence.. Philip’s personal touch, connections, and contacts made a huge difference. I highly, highly recommend Philip."
