The principality of Monaco is divided into three districts: Monte Carlo, La Condamine and Fontvieille.

The principality is blossoming

Spring and summertime in Monaco is without a doubt the most vibrant destination in the world and especially in the principality of Monaco.

The principality of Monaco is proud of its gorgeous gardens, one of the gardens is the Princess Grace Rose Garden, dedicated to Grace Kelly by her husband Prince Renier III. During March to July, the flowers in the gardens bring light to their surroundings. The rose garden is a must-see, as is Les Jardins St Martin, which offers up truly breathtaking views out over the Mediterranean. Le Jardin Exotique, which hosts a large collection of Mediterranean plants, cacti and succulents, is a beautiful break from the city.

Visit and Tour the Palais du Prince

An artistic and cultural escapade for the history-loving traveler.

Palais Du Prince

The Palais du Prince Palace sits high above Monaco and dates back to the 13th century when it would have been a Genoese fortress. You can visit and explore the palace when the Prince is not in residence. An easy way to tell if he is home – is to look for the flag in the main tower. If it is raised then it means that the Prince is at home. Some of the highlights of a visit to this tourist hot spot include the gallery modeled in the Italianate style, as well as the Blue Room which is known for its blue and gold decorations. There is also an ornate Throne Room and a Palatine Chapel.

Legendary and iconic – it can’t be missed.
