A stunning city-state along the French Riviera, it's become a go-to summer destination for the rich and famous, as well as a top European hotspot for millions of tourists. However, it does seem like you can only do so much here, right? How can you enjoy your time in Monaco? Well, even if you only have a day to spend here, there are still a lot to see and do!

Gamble at Casino de Monte Carlo

Money plays a huge part in Monaco. And it's not just because it's considered a 'tax haven.' In truth, Monaco is one of those exotic yet elegant places where gambling is the main game. Particularly, the famous Casino de Monte Carlo! A palatial arcade of bets and risks, it's where people either lose their fortunes or win big time. It's the type of place you'll often see in James Bond movies: mysterious, sophisticated, yet a little bit sinister at the same time. Just don't forget to dress up when you get here. There's a strict dress code you have to adhere to!

See The Prince's Palace

If you're up to seeing more palaces in Monaco without the risk of losing a lot of money, you can always visit the Prince's Palace! Home of the Royal Family of Monaco, it's a Genoese fortress that dates all the way back to the 13th-century. Though you can only visit it when the current monarch, Prince Albert, is not in the residence. You'll know this when the flag is not raised. If it is, it means he's home, therefore the palace is not open to the public at that time. Still, if you do get lucky with your timing, you won't want to miss the majesty of this palace!

They travel all the way to Monaco to watch the race but stay to enjoy and indulge in the finest things the city-state offers. Either way, watching this iconic international event should be part of your bucket list. It's something you won't want to miss when you get a chance to go here—hopefully in May!

Bask in Botanical Bliss

If you think the view of the Mediterranean sea from along the French Riviera is the only natural beauty you'll see in Monaco, think again! The principality actually has a handful of gardens that can make even botanists wheeze with excitement. Beautiful, beguiling, and some, even educational, they're the perfect natural paradises when you need to take a break from the hustle and bustles of the city-state. Jardin Exotique, for instance, in Fontvieille, is home to around 7,000 different species of flora worth studying. While the more famous Princess Grace Rose Garden, on the other hand, is a romantic retreat to escape to with your significant other.

Relax in A Yacht

The quintessential way to relax in Monaco is to rest in your yacht as it's docked by the harbor. Year after year, the rich and famous take their most expensive boats and head on over to Monaco for some luxurious rest and relaxation. You'll see it at the peak of summer, when the harbors of Monaco are filled with yachts, perfectly lined up in a row, as if they're about to race or something. And inside each and every one of them are bottles of champagne, the best food money can buy, and a whole lot of wealth! Now, this is the life!

Swim at Larvotto Beach

If you don't have your own yacht, however, you can still relax, swim, and get a tan on Larvotto Beach! Though Monaco has a number of beaches, Larvotto Beach is undoubtedly the most popular. The white sands are so bright, it almost feels like your actually stepping on the sun. The waters here are so clear, you'll almost want to drink it. And, of course, an array of great restaurants, cafes, and bistros are just a hop and a skip away! Convenient and comfortable, it's no wonder this beach gets busy every summer!
