    Sweedish Sandwich Shop

    by ZoneMaster Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cap Nord is a small Sweedish Cafe and Delicatessen on rue Grimaldi, owned by Marc and Sofia, two very nice people. They serve sanwhiches and Scandinavian specialties that are a delight to taste. I stopped by there often during my three week stay to get a sandwhich for lunch or dinner, or to visit with Marc. I highly recommed that you go by there just to say hello, and sample their delightful food.

    Day trip to Cannes in France by trains

    by hopang Updated Jan 8, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are staying in the city of Monte Carlo for a longer period why not take a day or two trip to Cannes in French Riviera. It promises to be a day of fun! You can either travel to Cannes by buses or trains. Travelling by buses is very much cheaper than travelling by trains but it takes more than two hours to reach Cannes from Monte Carlo. It takes less than an hour to travel by trains from Monte Carlo to Cannes. However cost of travelling by trains is seven or eight times more than that of travelling by buses!

    Among the great tourist attractions in Cannes include the impressive Promenade and the waterfront known as Boulevard de la Croisette, the Grand Auditorium where film festival is held annually, Cannes Old Town, Suquet Quarter, English Quarter, Mont Chevalier Watch Tower and Vieux Port. Many shops and shopping malls are located along the Promenade for those who are very fond of shopping. For those who are thirsty and hungry lots of international hotels, bars, pubs and restaurants are located along the Promenade for you to chill out!

    Day trip to Nice, France

    by hopang Updated Jan 6, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take a day trip to Nice in France from Monte Carlo if you are staying in Monte Carlo for several days for your vacations. It is only an hour by bus or half an hour by train from Monte Carlo. Among the tourist attractions in Nice include the four kilometre long Promenade, Cours Saleya Flowers Market, museums and palaces. Many shopping arcades along the Promenade are available for those who love shopping. For those who are hungry and thirsty there are never short of excellent bars, pubs and restaurants.

    Really not a "Off the beathen path" tip because Cannes is a favourite place for many people, call them budget tourist or again the upper class in this world. (50km from Monaco)
    Nicky - a good friend of me visited this place during one off the top attractions in Cannes - namely the yearly Festival - in 2007 for the 60th time. - Enjoy her pictures and memories

    Drive the Monaco Grand Prix Formula 1 city road!

    by WanderingFinn Written May 30, 2007

    We happened to have our short holiday in Nice about a week before the Monaco Grand Prix Formula 1 competition started, at around 20th of May. Naturally, as we were so near to Monaco, and had a rental car, we drove to see the tiny country too.

    We were lucky enough as they had started to build the fences, place the hanging advertisements and do other preparations too. The route was not yet closed from public, so one was able to drive the most famous places like the tunnel, the curve by the Monte Carlo Casino and so on.

    Cool...soon here will cruise the Formula 1 cars! Monaco Grand Prix... A familiar advertisement from sports channels? The famous tunnel of the Monaco Grand Prix route Famous scenes, again

    Cote D'Azur

    After you've explored Monaco, the countryside surrounding Monte Carlo on the Cote d'Azur is gorgeous. If you can tear yourself away from the glitz and glamour of Monte Carlo, take time to see the Cote d'Azur!

    The Saint-Martin Gardens

    by viddra Written Apr 24, 2005

    If you're looking for a pleasant, relaxing walk, the Saint Martin Garden's right for you. Here you can admire tall pines, aloes and agaves, fountains, bronze statues including a 1951 monument of Albert I, and listen to the sea.

    Where next?

    Walking around the city I found several buildings like the one in the picture. The beautiful constructions are all over the city so the best way to see them is to pay attention and keep the eyes open.

    Inside the cathedral

    by matcrazy1 Updated Aug 8, 2003

    Visit the Cathedral in Monaco Ville and remember to get inside.
    Not the most beautiful interior, in my opinion but a lot of interesting small miracles there. Am I wrong? Look at one on my picture.

    Fruit Market

    Visit the fruit market in La Condamine - the old port district.
    Don't miss it - isn't it colorful? And how many fruits and vegetables they sell there - hmm... I didn't know many of them that time hehe.

    Doesn't it look great?
    It's one of the places you can't miss while in Monaco. Don't forget to go inside but... hmm... I have seen more beautiful cathedrals in Europe (of which the one in Toledo, Spain was the most beautiful in my opinion).

    MENTON

    Menton is just a mile from the Italian border and therefore it's the most Italian of the French resorts. It has several fine tropical gardens, and citrus fruits thrive in a climate mild enough for the lemon festival in February.

    The MONTE-CARLO BEACH HOTEL is...

    by handsoum Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The MONTE-CARLO BEACH HOTEL is something differentfrom every other beach. The most exclusive beach in Monte-Carlo is also, as you might expect, the most expensive. However, here, you can enjoy very numerous activites, a great beach, pool, gourmet restaurants that will serve you on the beach 'si tel est le désir de Madame' and unequaled service. This is also a hotel, so you might think about living up to luxury's requirements, away from the common crowd, and only minutes away (by Rolls) from the main casino and very close to the Sporting Club de Monte-Carlo (home of the famous Salle des Etoiles and Jimmy's Nightclub for the extremely wealthy)

    Visit the web page of the Société des Bains de Mer, who cater for the rich, www.sbm.mc

    I think this aspect of Monaco is really amazing. Where in the US can you walk right out to some huge yacht and just gawk at it, and move on to the next, absolutely free? Most places here you're fenced off. Well, in Monaco, you can walk right up. Here's a picture of me hanging around the docks.
