Best Time To Visit: Monaco is a wonderful place to visit all year long, but several high-profile events are a must-see. The Grand Prix of Formula One takes place each May, which attracts thousands of people to Monte Carlo. If you would like to tour the most impressive yachts in the world, make sure to visit in September during the annual Monaco Yacht Show.
Key Cruising Areas: Monaco and in the vicinity Cap d’Ail, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Villefranche-Sur-Mer, and Nice are all safe, calm cruising areas, with great anchorages, beaches, and coastal restaurants.
Don’t Miss: Visit The Prince Palace in the old town, take a stroll along Port Hercule to admire the yachts, and spend some time in the Exotic Gardens. The Oceanographic Museum of Monaco is a truly spectacular place to explore. A breathtaking building that is built on the side of Monaco’s legendary Rocher, the museum was founded by H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco’s great-great-grandfather Prince Albert I.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: Monaco has a range of fine dining opportunities. If you’re a keen sommelier, the Wine Palace Monte Carlo is a must for some of the finest wines in the world. It is also located by the Yacht Club de Monaco, so you can take in the beautiful yachts while enjoying your drink. The Grill at the Hotel de Paris is a lovely spot for dinner, as is Joël Robuchon at Metropole. For something a little different, Coya served delicious Peruvian cuisine.
