Monaco’s most instagrammable spots

If you are looking to be inspired and to unearth THE unique destination, follow us. Let us guide you.

By coming to Monaco, you are already taking the first step on a unique journey. You will be dazzled at every turn, with every corner of the Principality packed with treats. From Monaco-Ville to Monte-Carlo, via Fontvieille or La Condamine, there’s so much to see. Your souvenir photo album will be superb!

 

Monaco-Ville 

No trip to the Principality is complete without a visit to Monaco-Ville. Lose yourself in the colourful and narrow streets of what the locals call “The Rock”, and don’t forget to take a tour of the St. Martin and St. Barbe gardens. Surrounded by the most beautiful Mediterranean trees, savour the breathtaking sea views.  

Pssst : When you stop to admire the sweeping views of the port of Fontvieille, head along the promenade to your right, onto the Ruelle Sainte-Barbe. There, nestling against the cliffside just a stone’s throw from the Prince’s Palace, enjoy the incredible peace and tranquillity. 

 

Monte-Carlo

After being enchanted by the Rock, head to the picture-perfect Casino de Monte-Carlo. Discover the splendid new-look square outside one of Monaco’s most iconic venues, with the Hôtel de Paris on one side and the Café de Paris on the other... Cameras and smartphones are always at the ready here! Admire the varied landscapes of this part of the Principality, from the magnificent gardens of La Petite Afrique to the luxury shopping experience of the One Monte-Carlo not to be overlooked.

Pssst : In between the designer stores, remember to look up: the green shades of the trees go superbly with the unique architecture of the One and the azure-blue Mediterranean sky. 

Fontvieille

If you’re looking for a marvellous - yet more local - perspective of Monaco, then you’ve come to the right place. This district was entirely reclaimed from the sea over thirty years ago, and has its own special atmosphere. You and your camera will be charmed by its energy!

Pssst : Explore the Fontvieille marina, with its mix of small craft and superyachts, and continue on to the embankment. There, you’ll find an unmatched view of part of the Principality and the Oceanographic Museum standing majestically over the Mediterranean. 

 

Condamine 

You don’t want to miss Monaco’s central district, and you’re absolutely right. La Condamine stretches around Port Hercule, and is home to a diverse atmosphere. Around the Port, with the starting grid of the Formula One Grand Prix which makes for a perfect photo, in the streets with their shops or around the Place d’Armes at the foot of the Palace, there is something to suit every taste...

Pssst : If you’re an early riser, take a morning stroll around the market on Place d’Armes where you’ll rub shoulders with the Monegasques between the fruit and vegetable stalls, and picture the lunch they’ll be preparing later. Your photos will be packed with colours and smiles. 

 

The Tête de chien 

Before you leave us, take a climb (550 metres to be precise), up to the Tête de Chien promontory (the “Dog’s Head”) and open your eyes wide. This is the ideal place from which to enjoy the most spectacular views of the Principality. You come here at your own risk, however... as you may not want to leave!

Pssst : In addition to having the whole of Monaco spread out at your feet, you’ll also be able to see three different countries at once, with the French and Italian coastlines. Smartphones at the ready!
