Monaco Off The Beaten Path

  • Sweedish Sandwich Shop

    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...

  • Day trip to Cannes in France by trains

    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...

  • Day trip to Nice, France

    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...

  • Cannes

    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...

    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...

  • 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!

  • Rockclimbing in Monaco

    Sounds funny, but Monaco is well-known for rock climbing. On the rocks above the city there are many climbing routes. I haven't been there myself but I read it's good there.

  • The Saint-Martin Gardens

    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.

  • Arquitechture

    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.

  • NO MILK TODAY!

    The bottle (0.25l) of the "HEINEKEN" coasted, in a bar on the beach, 30 French Francs (6.55957 FrF was 1 Euro).Cheers!

  • Inside the cathedral

    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.

  • The Cathedral in Monaco Ville

    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 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....

    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.

    THE HIGHEST POINT IN MONACO IS MONT AGEL, AT 140 METERS. HOWEVER, I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT THE SUMMIT OF MT AGEL IS IN MONACO. I THINK ITS IN FRANCE.

  • Principato di Seborga

    There's a new state on the Riviera. Nip across the border to Italy and up into the hills above Imperia to find the Principality of Seborga. It does a nice little trade these days in attracting the curious to look at its cute mouse-that-roared existence in the hills. Change your money into the local luigini, buy some of the local postage stamps and...

    For expediency, these two photos are joined, at least they are in proper order, and present as two grand castles, one on land and the other in the sea below, both fit for a king, queen, prince or princess. One of them is available to you, we hope that someday before it is too late that you consider giving this a try. It is no longer a British firm,...

  • If anyone is interested,...

    If anyone is interested, there's a nice looking penthouse suite over looking the water at St. Martin, in the Virgin Islands, a mere 2.2 million. It has a master bedroom that is over 1000 Square feet, an enormous covered balcony which could double for a jogging track, and the living room dwarfs the bedroom. I mention this here to draw a comparison....
