Monaco Travel Review

Monaco city view

The Principality of Monaco is situated at the heart of Mediterranean Europe and enjoys a particularly mild climate, with more than 300 days of sunshine per year. In winter, temperatures average between 45 to 58 degrees F, with sunny days and cool nights. In the springtime, "Le Mistral" wind creates crystal clear skies with temperatures in the 50s-60s. Most summers are in the 80s with hot spells for a week or so in July and August. Sea breezes cool down the evenings. One of the loveliest times to be in Monaco is autumn/fall. With temperatures in the 60s to 70s, people are still sun-tanning on the beach until mid-October.
    Just a short walk from Columbus Monaco, the hotel I'm staying, you can get to fisherman's pier where most people go there to do there fishing, I'm not in the mood of fishing that time though, but I was enjoying the view from the pier looking over the muse oceanographic seating very grandly on the Fontevielle hill .
    What next to see around Monaco? Garden is free in fact one of the finest roses you will be ever seen. Well organized, lovely fountains, overlooking the sea and the rocky mountain. Come to the rose garden surely get to see lots of different species of roses.
    Monaco is also known for people who enjoy the rich luxuries in life. Fancy sports cars, 5 star hotels, restaurants, , you name it and they have it...unfortunately a hefty price tag comes with it everything.

  2. The Oceanographic Museum was inaugurated in 1910 by its founder, Prince Albert I. The museum of marine sciences is a monumental architectural masterpiece with a façade rising above the sea. It took 11 years to build, using 100,000 tons of stone from La Turbie. The impressive rooms of the Museum, contain a collections of marine fauna, numerous specimens of sea creatures (stuffed or in skeleton form, including a skeleton of a whale), and craft ware made from the sea’s natural products. On the ground floor, exhibitions and varied film projections are regularly presented. And on the top floor, it is possible to have lunch in the restaurant "La Terrasse" admiring a magnificent panorama of the Principality of Monaco and the Italian Riviera. A museum shop is also available.
  3. The Zoological Terraces. The Zoo was opened in 1954 by Prince Rainier III and built on the south face of the Rock of Monaco overlooking the Port of Fontvieille. Some 250 animals from fifty different species (exotic birds, black panther, white tiger, hippopotamus, lemurs…) are housed here.

  4. The Prince's Palace. This palace sits on the hill above the harbor, overlooking the Prince's private swimming pool. There are two guard stations, and the ceremony of the changing of the guard takes place everyday at 11:55AM. Be sure to check out the archway on the right which leads down a winding path to the square below.
  5. Monaco Cathedral. Since I somehow always seem to find a church wherever I go. Pay a little visit to the Monaco Cathedral. It is near the Prince's Palace and on route to the Oceanographic Museum. The Cathedral was built in 1875 on the site of a 13th century church. The tombs of former Princes of Monaco are housed in this cathedral.
