Monaco is a city state and a country, and you’re not going to believe what all there is to do there. This country borders the Mediterranean Sea on one side, and just going there alone would be extra special. The country has a very small population, but it is a very popular vacation destination. Get ready to explore five of the most popular attractions in Monaco.
First, there is a private collection of antique cars that you can visit. These cars belong to Prince Ranier III, and you can imagine that this collection is quite a sight. The pictures on a top travel site of some of the antique cars look really cool. Located at Fonvei Terraces, this great car collection is amazing, and there are even antique horse drawn vehicles.
People say that the antique car museum is a good stop even if you aren’t a car lover (and even more so if you enjoy exotic cars!). Monte Carlo Harbor is the next stop, and it is on Route de la Piscine.
Imagine seeing the biggest luxury yachts you have ever laid eyes on. While you can’t board these private yachts, they are still fun to see. Plus, people say that this area is very beautiful in general. It is supposed to be a nice place to walk around and just take in the scene.
The Oceanographic Museum of Monaco is also a good place to visit in Monaco, and it is on Avenue Saint Martin. There is tons of sea life to see at this museum, and the reviews talk about a light show as well. When you walk in, you get to check out the aquarium section and sea life right away. The museum part of the building is all located on the upper floors.
When it comes to visiting the beach in Monaco, one top place of interest is Larvotto Beach. This beach is said to be beautiful, and the water is clear. It is a manmade beach, too. Small stores are in the area for your browsing, and the beach is said to get quite crowded when it is summertime. I would certainly be a place to check out when you are vacationing in Monaco.
The Japanese Gardens are also quite beautiful, and they are located at 5 Avenue Princess Grace, and admission is free. The pictures of The Japanese Gardens are gorgeous, and you will also see Koi fish there. The Grimaldi Forum is right next to The Japanese Gardens.
Then there is Port de Fontvieille, and it is located at 7 Avenue du President John F Kennedy. Check out the Prince’s palace, which is up on the cliff, and the picturesque port as it is called also features many bars and restaurants. It is beautiful, and it is the same caliber as the other four attractions mentioned. Monaco is truly a great place to enjoy a vacation, and you will be glad that you decided to go to this French city state and country for some fun.
