Monaco, now and then
The Principality through the ages, with Menton and Roquebrune
The Principality of Monaco is much more than what people believe.
Beyond the exclusive resort for an international jet set, it’s a fascinating story, an epic! Let our guide tell you the history of the only nation in the world founded by a single family, the Grimaldi, and spend a day in the last example of a European city state.
To appreciate the « authentic” Monaco, you must understand how an isolated perched village became, through the centuries, a prosperous country which attracts the largest fortunes of the world. For that, we’ll take you to Menton, the gorgeous « pearl of France » and to Roquebrune, a typical medieval village with the oldest castle in France, both were part of Monaco up to 1848, both equally splendid.
You will then discover the second smallest country in the world with a different perspective.
Visit Monte-Carlo and its famous casino, the historic town perched on « the Rock », the antique port Hercules, the Larvotto seaside and its Japanese’s garden, the reclaimed land of Fontvieille , and of course the legendary circuit of the F1 Grand prix.
On request, see the exotic garden, or the ancient car collection of the Prince, or the prehistoric museum, or visit the palace. Entrance fees not included.
With us, you will follow the scenic roads and enjoy the best panoramas.
