Monaco Ville: Known as "The Rock," this medieval corner of Monaco is best explored on foot so leave your Monaco car hire at your hotel. Stroll the pedestrian streets and don't miss a visit to the Prince's Palace.
Formula 1 Grand Prix: This is spectacular and is a premiere social event in Europe. The cars race through Monaco's streets instead of a race track and you've never been so close to the roaring cars as a spectator. Truly thrilling!
Grand Casino: Few other than the world's richest and most famous can afford to really gamble here but for a nominal fee you can enter and visit the incredible gaming rooms.
