Monaco is a country with many faces. An architectural highlight is the princely castle that was mainly built in the 16th century, whose magnificent halls are accessible for guided tours during the summer time.
Another famous building of Monaco is the cathedral Saint-Nicolas from the year 1875, a masterpiece of architecture built in the Romanesque-Byzantine style, which surprises with an interior decorated with centuries-old art treasures.
Monaco is a city state where time never seems to stand still. This reputation is underlined by excursion destinations like the Casino Monte Carlo. At any time of the day or night, gamblers at the slot machines and roulette tables of the casino hope to hit the jackpot. However, the casino is not the only attraction housed in the building, which was built in 1878. Theatre and opera lovers also come and go in the extensive cultural facilities. The cultural program is broadly diversified and ranges from ballet to musicals and opera.
Monaco is also known for its beautiful restaurants.
If after so many activities you feel like spending the evening in a nice local, my tip - the restaurant Le Blue Bay, which belongs to a gastronomic address you cannot avoid in Monaco.
