The “French Riviera” lifestyle
A Princely State of compact dimensions, Monaco benefits from a special climate. A haven of Southern European calm caressed by the Mediterranean, the Principality is a much-coveted destination. Each year, 4.5 million tourists visit Monaco, which intrigues by its bouquet of buildings flowing up into the sky. As the day passes, its superb ancient façades with their pink, pale blue or light yellow render and its towers are overshadowed by the Principality’s modern tower blocks.
By day, Monaco bustles with activity courtesy of its many boutiques specialising in Haute Couture and Jewellery. A procession of luxury cars intermingles with tourists as they marvel at the Old Town, the numerous museums and the Palace perched imposingly on its Rock.
Monaco nights are festive and extravagant. The 5-star palaces, luxury gourmet restaurants and casinos remain places to be seen for celebrities and jet-setters alike. The Principality fascinates due to its popularity with the rich and famous and also the splendour of its charity galas such as “Le Bal de la Rose” and “Le Bal de la Croix-Rouge”, which attract the richest patrons every year.
