Take  a step back in time with a visit to Le Rocher, also known as Monaco-Ville. Here you will find the only part of Monaco that remains they way it did in Medieval times. With windy roads and cobblestone streets it's great place to stroll through.

Sit back, relax and soak up some sun on the shores of Larvotto Beach. Because of its location, Monaco has beautiful weather all year round, so make the most of the sunshine and take a dip amongst the turquoise waters.

 

The beach is extremely family friendly with shallow and calm waters. However, keep in mind that in the summer months this is one of the most popular beaches in the area so plan to get down there early!
