Monte Carlo

With its picturesque setting and ease of access from most of Europe, Monte Carlo is an increasingly popular venue for conferences and meetings
MEETINGS
  • The Meridien Beach Plaza Hotel. This hotel has a business centre, fitness suite, indoor and outdoor pools and a private beach. L'Intempo restaurant overseen by Emmanuel Lehrer opens 24 hours a day.
  • Fairmont This large hotel hugging the cliffs offers suites, meeting rooms and exhibition space. It has three restaurants, bars and cafes, and a fitness centre.
  • Hotel Columbus. Owned by F1 driver David Coultard this hotel, near the heliport, offers a chic yet more casual venue than is usual in Monaco. It has seminar rooms for up to 90 people and a tiered auditorium.

ENTERTAINMENT

Casino
Built in 1878 by Charles Garnier, the architect of the Paris opera house, the casino is open daily from 12:00. Men need to wear jacket and tie and passports must be shown. Try your luck at roulette in the Salle EUR ope or craps and blackjack in the American Room. For high rollers, chemin de fer and pai gow poker are available in the Salon Prives.

Grand Prix
In May the F1 Grand Prix comes to Monaco. The rest of the year you can still check out the circuit that winds through the streets and visit Prince Rainier's collection of vintage cars on Terrasses de Fontvieille.

Sights
You could watch the changing of the Palace Guard at 11:55 and then visit the cathedral where Princess Grace is buried. Or stroll through the Japanese gardens on Avenue Princess Grace and carry on by the sea to check out the yachts. If you have more time you can take the elevator from the harbour's western side to the Musee Oceanographie.
