Monaco‘s name inspires many to dream about luxury yachts anchored in the blue waters of the Mediterranean. Parties filled with European nobility and the world’s most powerful celebrities. Billionaires and Millionaires spending their fortunes playing roulette or blackjack.
The Principality of Monaco or simply Monaco is the second smallest state and the most densely populated in the world although it only has about thirty thousand inhabitants. This tiny country which until a few years ago was blacklisted for being considered a non-transparent tax haven is now the residence of magnates and families of a noble lineage whose impressive mansions with private heliports cause the admiration of travelers and visitors. Let us not forget that Monaco is the residence of the Grimaldi family the reigning family of Monaco.
Its great location makes of Monaco a perfect weekend getaway or bridge destination for those looking to be pampered European style. Monaco offers its visitors nothing but the best: glamorous events, dream hotels, 27 Michelin-starred restaurants, the Grand Monte Carlo Casino and the famous Yacht Club de Monaco founded by Prince Rainier III of Monaco on 19 May 1953.
For those who do not arrive in Monaco on their private yacht it is only an hour and a half flight from Paris into Nice Côte d’Azur Airport and then a half-hour drive or a short helicopter ride to your hotel of preference. Luxury begins almost the moment we stepped on French soil.
Our first stop in Monaco is the Hotel de Paris. A couple of steps from Place du Casino will lead you to the majestic lobby of the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo. Marble colonnades, low relief sculptures and crystal chandeliers combine to create a sense of awe-inspiring solemnity which makes this such an unforgettable destination.
