For the ultimate Monte-Carlo experience, it’s hard to beat this fabled Casino Square location combined with Mediterranean harbour views.

Right by the Port Hercule, where the big yachts cluster, the Port Palace’s seven floors back into the rock-face which rises to the Monte Carlo headland. The views across the port to the other headland (with Monaco-Ville on top), and then out to sea are sensational. And you’re five minutes walk from the central Place-du-Casino.
