Just the name Monte Carlo conjures visions of a glamorous bygone era. And in modern Monte Carlo, the tax-free principate surrounded by France and the Maritime Alps, that glamour is not lost. Along with European hideaways like
Lake Como, Gstaad, and Ibiza, this cliffside Mediterranean port is a timeless playground for the see-and-be-seen crowd. But amid all the hubbub, it’s still possible to while away the afternoon over a café crème, amble along the harbor among the yachts, and experience the slow-paced, yet refined, Monégasque savoir vivre.
Enjoying a quiet dinner at Sea Lounge, where quiet dinners evolve into all-night parties, with DJs spinning dance music until dawn.
Visting the 19th-century Romanesque-Byzantine Cathedrale de Monaco, also the final resting place of Princess Grace.
Shopping for the best labels from around the globe (think: Michael Kors, Proenza Schouler, and Lutz & Patmos) at Espace Mirage.
