The principality of Monaco is constantly reinventing itself, leading the way as a destination that unites luxury and sustainability, and setting the bar high for ethical and safe tourism. It is no longer something to dream about, but something to experience.
From the fairytale turrets of the casino to the splendid cream façade of the Prince's Palace, Monaco is a place that is constantly reinventing itself, without renouncing the element of its DNA.
A country guided by the values of excellence, experience, commitment, ethics, expertise, quality, renewal, success and sustainability, the Principality of Monaco is not just a destination, it is the experience of a lifetime!
Here are the latest developments to help you to plan your travel:
FAST AND FURIOUS
After the cancellation of the 2020 Monaco Formula 1 Grand-Prix and the 2020 Monaco Historic Grand-Prix due to COVID-19, for the first time Monaco will host in a month three Grand-Prix races in 2021. Put Monaco on your radar and save the date for the Monaco Historic Grand-Prix (23-25 April), Monaco E-Prix (8 May) and then finally the Monaco Formula 1 Grand-Prix (20-23 May).
NEW LOOK FOR CASINO SQUARE
Monaco's iconic Casino Square has been given a new look, restored to its former glory while providing a fresh, spacious and safe place to meet. The renovated Place du Casino not only has more pedestrian-friendly spaces, but also preserves the famous Formula 1 Grand-Prix racecourse, and has space for Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer Group’s VIP customers to park their Insta-worthy cars in the square.
Monaco has always enjoyed world-class shopping, but the New One Monte-Carlo precinct –between the Hotel Hermitage Monte-Carlo and the Place du Casino – takes things up a notch. In addition to boutique from top designers (Dior, Louis Vuitton, Prada among them), you can look forward to haute-couture snacks at Mada One (helmed by a Michelin-starred chef), all surrounded by a lush new landscaped area, designed to continue the Principality’s emphasis on sustainable design.
TRADITION, EXCELLENCE, MODERNITY
These three words beautifully encapsulate French Chef Yannick Alléno and Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer "savoir-faire". The renowed Michelin starred restaurant "Vistamar" in Monaco is changing its name to become "Yannick Alléno at l’Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo". The chef's goal is to export the concept of the luxury Pavyllon counter to Monaco. A place for simple pleasures and haute cuisine.
LOFTY GREEN GOAL
Driven by its goal to be carbon neutral by 2050, the Principality is dedicated to improving its tourism economy through environmentally conscious initiatives, not in the least the Monaco E-Prix and E-Rally but also green transportation, from e-bikes to e-cars to e-boats. Visitors here can rest assured they are leaving a light footprint –this really is one of the most eco-friendly place in the world, with all public vehicles being either electric, hybrid or bio-fuel.
Whether you look for a short city break, a family or friend getaway, a romantic escape or a revitalizing experience, there is no place like Monaco.
