Monte Carlo has a number of great things to see and do, no matter the time of day or night. EscapeWizard.com recommends starting with a trip to the lovely Oceanographic Museum of Monaco to view rare species of fish and beautiful coral. You'll also want to be sure and visit the Prince's Palace, built in 1191 and still serving as residence to the current Prince of Monaco. Additionally, Monte Carlo features a Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology, the Prince of Monaco's Collection of Classic Cars, and the Automatons and Dolls of Yesteryear Museum. The Monaco Cathedral and the Napoleon Museum are also popular area attractions.    

The city is also a great place for outdoor activity, thanks to its gorgeous natural setting along the coast. Go for a run, play golf, engage in a variety of water sports, or simply bask in the sunshine right on the beach. EscapeWizard.com knows that Monte Carlo really shines after the sun goes down, offering a great way to unwind after a long day of enjoying the local attractions. The city is known for its casinos, so try your luck at winning the jackpot at Casino de Monte Carlo, Casino Café de Paris, or Monte Carlo Bay Casino, just to name a few. Las Vegas, Nevada even has a casino named the Monte Carlo, but somehow, we're guessing it's not quite like the real deal!     

A particularly unique characteristic of Monte Carlo is its popularity on the silver screen. EscapeWizard.com knows that the city has been featured in a number of films and television series, including two James Bond films, an Alfred Hitchcock film, and in the British series known as Randall and Hopkirk. Additionally, Chevrolet's car called the Monte Carlo experienced great success through six generations from 1970 until 2007. While we're on the subject of cars, EscapeWizard.com must mention that the prestigious Formula One Monaco Grand Prix takes place each year on the Circuit de Monaco, bringing sporting excitement and boosted tourism to the area during the race.     

For a memorable vacation amid gorgeous scenery, look no further than Monte Carlo. With France and Italy both within reasonable driving distance, the sightseeing options expand even further. Book your Monaco travels through EscapeWizard.com, and let this one of a kind destination captivate you, just as it has so many others.
