Private jet charter and flights to Monte Carlo
Luxury yachts, designer shopping and world-class cuisine – Monte Carlo is the globe’s glamour capital and a mecca for the wealthy jet-set.

Visit the beautiful 19th-century Cathedrale de Monaco â€“ Princess Graceâ€™s final resting place â€“ before watching the ceremonial changing of the guard at Palais du Prince, the royal familyâ€™s official residence. On the Terrasses de Fontvieille you can view Prince Ranierâ€™s private collection of antique cars, which is open to the public and includes models by Ferrari, Maserati and Rolls Royce along with a Lexus from the 2011 royal wedding. Thrill-seekers should snare tickets to the electrifying Monaco Grand Prix, renowned for its daring street circuit, and rub shoulders with the super-rich at the grand Monte Carlo Casino, which has appeared in several James Bond films.
This luxury capital is a shopping haven. Splash out on haute couture fashion and high-end jewellery in the exclusive CarrÃ© dâ€™Or district, where elegant boutiques stock coveted labels such as HermÃ¨s, Dior, Chanel and Cartier. Pick up a handmade sweet treat from La Chocolaterie de Monaco, the countryâ€™s official chocolate-maker since 1920, and peruse gifts bearing Prince Ranierâ€™s personal seal at Manufacture de Monaco.
Lavish fine dining is the order of the day in Monte Carlo. Patrons can personally select their own fresh seafood at La MarÃ©e, a rooftop restaurant overlooking Port Hercule, and watch as two-Michelin-starred Mediterranean cuisine is prepared in the open-plan kitchen at JoÃ«l Robuchon. Further afield in Monacoâ€™s Old Town, youâ€™ll find MarchÃ© de la Condamineâ€™s fantastic food market â€“ head to Truffle Gourmet for great-value Italian-inspired treats. Make sure you also try Monacoâ€™s national dish, the barbagiuan, a savoury stuffed pastry typically filled with Swiss chard and ricotta.
Unsurprisingly, the city is scattered with ultra-luxurious hotels. Rub shoulders with the glitterati at HÃ´tel de Paris, a lavish Belle Ã‰poque palace with three-Michelin-starred cuisine and the worldâ€™s largest wine cellar; and soak up the glamorous atmosphere at Monte Carlo Beach, a society bolthole since the 1920s. Families will love the Fairmont Monte Carlo with its fabulous rooftop pool, while Hotel Metropole is a peaceful retreat with world-class spa.
