Monaco Destination guide

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, you’ll connect to the real Monaco in a way like no other. Sitting glamorously as part of Côte d'Azur, French Riviera, we arrive in Monaco. Bordered by France and the sapphire waters of the Mediterranean Sea, this was once—and still is—a summer playground for writers, artists and the world’s elite. Here, you will trace the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Despite its affluent reputation, the Riviera offers more than celebrity spotting and a harbour of super yachts. Savour the French-influenced cuisine, tip your hat to 90 years of Grand Prix history and appreciate the grandeur of one of the world’s best marine museums. Monaco is often conquered as a day trip ticking off sites like Prince’s Palace of Monaco and the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino. Visit Monaco for a little longer on Trafalgar, and you may just take home something deeper than a tan. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
