GET­TING THERE

Friday - - TRAVEL -

Emi­rates (www.emi­rates.com) flies from Dubai to Nice re­turn from around Dh4,850. From Nice, book a Heli Air (www.he­li­air­monaco.com) trans­fer to Monte Carlo, which is a quick and spec­tac­u­lar seven-minute jour­ney over the Med. As Monaco’s flag car­rier, it also does pick-ups from the French and Ital­ian Riv­ieras. For beau­ti­ful, spa­cious rooms, a Karl Lager­field-de­signed restau­rant and the oc­ca­sional celebrity spot­ting, Ho­tel Metropole is very lovely in­deed (www.metropole.com, rooms from Dh2,500 per night). The staff at the ho­tel are su­per-friendly – ask them to print you a Princess Grace tour map.
