Reasons Why Monaco should be Next on Your List of Travel Destinations

Monaco is certainly the one location you want to head to, if what you are looking for is to leave your normal life behind for a few days. There, you can enjoy the best that life has to offer. To start your imagination, here are a few of the reasons why you should go online and book a ticket to Monaco.

To Live a Luxurious Life

When you decide which Monaco hotels you would like to stay at during your next trip, you will dream of the luxury to come, so that you can break free from the common day-to-day grind. There is not doubt that one of the four hotels from Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer will catch your attention, as they all offer a high quality of services and the greatest level of accommodations that you can ask for, starting with the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, an iconic palace that you have probably seen in photos before. There, you will have access to more than one Michelin-starred restaurant, and you can stay in one of their exclusive suites that have been newly renovated.

But then again, you may decide on one of the three others. The Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo is located right in the centre of Monaco. If elegance is the key word to your expectations, and if charm is what you are searching for, then look no farther, as you have found the right hotel for your stay. For a daring view at the sea that will make you catch your breath, the Monte-Carlo Beach will do the trick. You will also get to enjoy its private beach and its Olympic-sized pool. Finally, for those who like spas, the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort will answer to your desire, thanks to its renowned Spa Cinq Monde. We did say luxurious life in the subtitle…

To visit one of the Most Beautiful Oceanographic Museum in the World

You will be left speechless, as you walk inside the entry hall of Monaco’s Oceanographic Museum, and throughout the rest of your visit, as well. Even from the outside you will marvel at its unique architecture, featuring an impressive façade that is towering above the sea, with a sheer cliff of more than 85 meters right in front, that will leave you breathless. Its Baroque Revival style gives the tone to the whole Museum, which was opened by Prince Albert I, in 1910. For over 100 years, it has been home to a large number of special exhibitions, as well as to a collection of species of the sea fauna. Note that for over thirty years (1957 to 1988), the director of the museum was none other than the world famous navigator of the seas: Jacques Cousteau.

To stroll Peacefully along the Alleys of the Japanese Garden

Luxury first comes with peace of mind. The Zen design was applied to this Japanese garden, so that anyone walking through its alleys would find serenity. It was ordered to be built, by Prince Rainier III in 1994. He called upon Yasuo Beppu, who had just won the Grand Prix at the Osaka Flower Exhibition in 1990, to design it. His wish was for the people of the Principality, as well as to all Monaco visitors, to be transported in Japan, thanks to the creativity of its designer. And so, ponds, islands, lanterns and bridges were inserted into the garden, to provide it with the image of one that you would find in the land of the rising sun. There, you can complete your journey towards peace of mind, simply watching birds chirps, in the branches of trees, in front of you.

To shop to Your Heart’s Content

Serenity is good, but sometimes you just need a little bit of excitement. That is certainly what you will find as you walk through the One Monte-Carlo shopping Center, which is also a place of residence. You will be able to shop in the open air, as you head from one luxury boutique to another, for a total of 24. You will find such names as Dior, Piaget or Bulgari. And when you are exhausted from your day, you can go back to your hotel and enjoy a spa, a swim in the pool or some of the most amazing meals you will ever have in your life in one of the Michelin-starred restaurants. Doesn’t that sound just like what you thought you really needed?
