Experience the ultimate jet-set short break with a weekend in Monte Carlo, where you can watch the yachts line the harbour whilst enjoying Michelin-starred cuisine, and perhaps a roll of the dice in the world-famous casino.
Enjoy a uniquely mild micro-climate, as well as the ‘Passport to Monaco’ which offers entrance to the best attractions and museums in the principality.
Thanks to our friends at Kirker, you can also enjoy 3 nights for the price of 2 at some of our favourite hotels during the winter months.
Nestled on the glamorous Cote d’Azur on the Mediterranean coast, Monaco is a unique haven for the super-rich, pleasure-seekers and international glitterati. There are few better destinations for a taste of the high life than the principality with its world-class restaurants, luxurious hotels and of course, the famous Casino.
Whether or not you choose to have a flutter at the table of the Casino de Monte-Carlo, there is plenty to keep visitors entertained, from the excellent aquarium and the famous exotic garden, which is home to cacti and tropical species, to the Prince’s own collection of classic cars and the spectacular State Apartments.
Our clients will receive complimentary entrance to all of these and more with the Passport to Monte-Carlo.
Just walking the streets is a fascinating experience as you tread the race track of the famous Monaco Grand Prix which brings its colour, noise and spectacle to the road of the principality every May, and the numerous bars and cafes provide ample opportunities for first-class people-watching.
If you are celebrating a special occasion there are some exceptional restaurants including several Michelin-starred establishments such as Joel Robuchon at the Hotel Metropole, which serve the finest French cuisine in elegant surroundings.
Although the prices reflect the impressive surroundings, it is worth the extravagance for a truly memorable dinner. For elegant dining with an al fresco terrace, the famous Café de Paris offers a Belle Epoque style brasserie and some delicious specialities – and it is a great place for an afternoon coffee or a glass of wine after a busy morning’s sightseeing.
The Kirker Guide Notes to Monaco include our top recommendations for restaurants to suit every palette and budget, as well as tips for sightseeing and practical information. A Concierge is available to help with tickets for events – including the Monaco Grand Prix and the Historic Grand Prix (the weekend of classic car racing which takes place a few weeks before) – with table reservations at any of our recommended restaurants (essential for the most popular establishments), and with excursions to the surrounding area.
For those staying longer, Monaco can provide a perfect base for trips to the towns and villages along the coast further west, or east into Italy. San Remo, Nice, St Jean-Cap-Ferrat and even Cannes, are within a day trip on the local trains or by car.
Price from £599 per person for a three night holiday including flights, private car transfers, accommodation with breakfast, ‘Passport to Monaco’, Kirker Guide Notes to restaurants and sightseeing and the services of the Concierge.
