DESTINATION OF THE MONTH
WEEK 1 OF 4
Monaco is not just a destination, it is the experience of a lifetime.
For more than a century, it has been an aspirational symbol of luxury and glamour, renowned for its safety. What the country lacks in size, it makes up for in history, culture, entertainment and character. Today it is reinventing itself while preserving its environment.
The Principality offers world-class hotels, exclusive shopping, a variety of museums, sumptuous gastronomy and cocooning spas; it is the place where the most eclectic desires materialise… which is what we need most at a time when hedonistic experiences are scarce.
Principality of Excellence
For the past 150 years, Monaco has been the prime destination for the most selective travellers. This country nestled between sea and mountains perfectly cultivates this clever blend of a Principality that is reinventing itself, while remaining faithful to the elements that make up its DNA. Through the decades, Monaco has continuously developed a broad offering of services catering to the most exclusive of experiences, combining both innovative concepts and internationally renowned historic establishments, perpetuating excellence.
During the COVID-19 health crisis, Monaco has continued to develop its high-quality offering so that when the visitors returned, not only would they reconnect with their favourite aspects of the Principality but they would also find themselves enjoying new features in the Monaco travel world.
#MonacoSafe: Welcoming Visitors in the Best Conditions
To continue to welcome visitors from all over the world in the best conditions, the Prince’s Government has created the Monaco Safe certification, a real pledge of health safety and confidence for customers and visitors to the various establishments that are open to the public. Visitors will thus be able to discover the Principality while enjoying both security and peace of mind. At the heart of a period where attention to the traveller is more than essential and where resilience is key, Monaco wants to be responsive.
Monaco is FOR YOU. At Last!
Home to nine exceptional Michelin-starred restaurants, the prestigious events taking place throughout the year or the many havens of peace scattered within its hotel establishments, the Principality cannot be outdone. But Monaco is also a home, where you can delight your taste buds by tasting typical Monegasque products at local eateries or at the Halle Gourmande of the Condamine Market. Where the heart of the city beats there is also shopping for all, where adults and children alike will find what they are looking for. Everyone will be able to marvel at the unique aquariums of the world-famous Oceanographic Museum, stroll through the many traditional and exotic gardens of the Principality, watch the changing of the guards at the Prince’s Palace, or travel through time with the collection of cars of HSH the Prince of Monaco.
Putting Sustainability First
While the Principality continues to fascinate and entertain at the same time, it also strives to become a benchmark in sustainable tourism. Forward-thinking, the Principality is committed to protecting the environment and continuously works to engage all of its partners in promoting responsible tourism. HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco has committed the Principality to reduce its greenhouse gas by 55% by 2030 compared to 1990 and to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. Having been committed to the fight against climate change and for the protection of the oceans for many decades, and even more so since the accession of HSH Prince Albert II in 2005, Monaco is implementing numerous environmentally-friendly actions.
This requires a comprehensive state policy, through an approach that includes all stakeholders in local tourism, from restaurateurs to hoteliers.
In other words, whether you are travelling to Monaco by yourself, as a couple, with family or friends: Monaco is FOR YOU. At Last!
