We will be staying in the South of France (30 mins by taxi) from Monaco and will be spending a day in Monaco. I was wanting to go out to dinner in Monaco and the casino but would obviously need to dress up. I was wondering if we spend the day in Monaco would it be best to catch a taxi (transport) back to our Hotel then get ready and go back again? or just stay in Monaco for the night?? I know its very expensive in Monaco.

Monaco questions

We will be driving from Aix to Monaco on Friday June 1 and back to Marseille that night and I have a few questions.

1) where to park, I'm guessing it's best to park and leave the car for the day

2) is there anything with large crowds happening on June 1st?

3) I'm guessing that we will have 5 hours to visit Monaco (Via Michelin says 2 hours from Aix to Monaco) and I'd like to do a more scenic drive back. What's the best way to get an overview? On foot? By tourist train?

4) drive back to Marseille, which route is the most scenic? I don't think we intend of stopping anywhere else, we've been to Nice and Eze on previous trips.

Travel from Monte Carlo to Barcelona  (4 Answers)

Hi everyone. It's been over 30 years since I've been to the south of France, and I am planning a trip to Monaco next May, so I'd love to travel through France to Barcelona afterwards. What is the best travel method to allow me to visit some of the smaller culturally and architecturally significant locations between Monte Carlo and Barcelona? I can drive, but it would be one-way as I fly home from Barcelona. Is the train a good way to go? I am thinking of taking 3-5 days for the trip between Monte Carlo and Barcelona.
Any advice and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hotel Cosmopolite true or not  (3 Answers)

Hello everyone.

After my attendance at a festival next year im going to make my way down to Monaco. I have checked the trains and they dont arrive in monaco untill later at night.

So i want to stay a night in Monaco or near the board area, visit the country the next day then board a train to take me near San Marino at night.

I have been going through websites and i found this


4, rue de la Turbie
98000 Principauté de Monaco

I cant seem to find any booking details for this hotel. I know it has an adrress & located on google maps but its odd for a hotel not to have a website and book & pay thing.

With accommodation i like to book in advance & pay the price then stay. I dont like having to rock up on the day and ask for a room to find out theres none & monaco is an expensive country so id be willing to stay outside its borders

AFTER anything under100 (this is going to be a cheap holiday for me)

after more google i find this
Star Clippers,
Clipper Palace,
4, rue de la Turbie,
98000 Monaco

star clippers is a sailing thing
