If you are visiting Monaco to view properties try to avoid the weekends as many apartments which are for sale are rented out, and the people renting are at liberty to refuse weekend viewings when they are at home. Another time to avoid visiting Monaco to view real estate is a week before and during the Grand Prix as many roads are open for residents only, and many of the properties for sale are rented out for the week, and requests for viewing will be refused.
