We asked Victor Gee,
Founder of Victor de Monaco blog, where to explore in-and-around Monaco
Definitely a drive followed by a walk to Tête de Chien to watch the most beautiful sunset on the French/italian Riviera – and to enjoy a panoramic view of Monaco.
L’opéra de Monte-carlo hosts the most beautiful artistic shows and events in the area.
Café de Paris is a must. You can’t go to Monaco without having lunch there. As for a more relaxed moment by the sea, I would recommend Monte-carlo Bay for lounging, having a drink and a light meal. When you go to Monaco you will feel the urge to have pizza/pasta (because of all the Italian vibes around), and fish for obvious reasons.
I personally love the Buddha Bar and, for a chilled evening, the Monaco Yacht Club has the most beautiful view of the army of yachts in the port.
I love Le Méridien Beach Plaza, it always feels like a zen environment. During the Grand Prix, I would say somewhere out of Monaco because the roaring engines and the crowd will be everywhere. So Saint-jeanCap-ferrat or Cap d’antibes are calm and breathtaking.
If you haven’t visited Cannes or Nice then you should. Otherwise Sanremo, just over the Italian border.
