To find THE unique place, follow us. We guide you and help you create impressions and memories of a lifetime.

A trip to the Principality is incomplete without going through Monaco-Ville. Lose yourself in the narrow and colourful streets of what the locals also call “Le Rocher (The Rock)”, and don’t forget to walk around it through the Saint-Martin and Sainte-Barbe gardens. Surrounded by the most beautiful Mediterranean trees, you will be blown away by the breath-taking views of the Big Blue.


Pssst: when stopping to contemplate the plunging view of the port of Fontvieille, on the side of the cliff, a stone’s throw from the Prince’s Palace, you will enjoy astonishing tranquillity.

After being captivated by the Rock, you will imagine yourself in a painting around the Casino de Monte-Carlo! Discover the new square of this emblematic Monaco establishment, with the Hôtel de Paris on one side and the Café de Paris on the other… no doubt that cameras and smartphones should be hot! Admire the heterogeneous landscapes of this district between the magnificent gardens of Little Africa and the essential shopping address of One Monte-Carlo.

Pssst: between the finest luxury boutiques and the greatest designers, don’t forget to look up: the green of the trees blends perfectly with the unique architecture of One and the azure blue of the sky of our Coast.

If you want to marvel and discover Monaco from a more local perspective, you’ve come to the right place. The Fontvieille district exclusively reclaimed from the sea more than thirty years ago offers a very special atmosphere, and you and your lens will be caught up in its energy!

Pssst: discover the marina of the port of Fontvieille, between small boats and large yachts, and continue your walk to the dike. You will have a unique perspective on part of the Principality and on the Oceanographic Museum overlooking the Mediterranean.

You do not want to avoid exploring the central district of Monaco and you are right. La Condamine stretches around Port Hercule and offers several atmospheres. Around the Port, with the starting grid of the Formula 1 circuit that it is possible to immortalize, in the shopping streets or around the Place d’Armes market at the foot of the Palace, there is something for everyone.

Pssst: if you have not taken the late morning option, take a detour to the Place d’Armes market at a time when Monegasques stroll between the fruit and vegetable stalls and think about the lunch, they are going to be able to simmer. Your camera shots will be filled with colour and smiles.

Before leaving, gain altitude, climb the Tête de Chien promontory and keep your eyes open. It is the ideal place to benefit from a perfect point of view on the Principality. However, it is at your own risk… because you will not want to leave!

Pssst: in addition to having Monaco at your feet, you will see three countries at a glance, with the French and Italian coasts hugging the Mediterranean.
