Monte Carlo – Casino Square Night Tour
Spend an evening in Monaco to see the principality truly glitter with a 5-hour night tour. Go for a drive on the Basse Corniche road to the Vista Palace Hotel in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, where you’ll be rewarded with gorgeous views of Monaco all lit up. In Monaco itself, see how the Prince’s Palace and Monaco Cathedral shine at night. Enjoy the romantic evening charm of Monaco-Ville, the historic center of Monaco. Check out the grandeur of Casino Square as men and women dressed to the nines head in for some high-end gambling. Take advantage of some free time to wander around Monte Carlo on your own or get dinner in one of the trendy restaurants (own expense). Group size is limited to eight people to ensure more personalized attention from your guide.
Begin your evening tour with pickup at your hotel in Monaco and drive east on the Basse Corniche road toward the Vista Palace Hotel. As the road climbs, you’ll get better and better views overlooking the Mediterranean – passing the Medieval town of Eze on the way – until you arrive in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin and the Vista Palace Hotel perched on a hill. From there, the view down to an illuminated Monaco are splendid.
Back down in Monaco again, see the stately Prince’s Palace all lit up against the night sky. This is the historic palace from which the Grimaldi family has ruled the principality since the 13th century. See the Monaco Cathedral (Saint Nicholas Cathedral) where Princess Grace and Prince Rainier are buried. Walk through the streets and squares around the palace and cathedral in the Old Town of Monaco-Ville, sometimes called ‘Le Rocher’ or ‘The Rock.’
Drive into glitzy Monte Carlo and take a moonlit stroll through Casino Square. Check out the opulent casinos and luxury hotels, not to mention the well-heeled clientele in both. Enjoy some free time here to take a romantic walk, try your hand in one of the casinos or have dinner in one of the chic restaurants nearby (own expense).
Take another drive along the Basse Corniche to appreciate the views after the sun has gone down and, at the conclusion of your tour, get returned to your hotel in Monaco.
