But if you head to the town's great 1864 landmark Hôtel de Paris—still a veritable crossroads of the buffed and befurred Euro-gentry—or enjoy a grand bouffe at its famous Louis XV restaurant, or attend the opera, or visit the ballrooms of the casino, you may still be able to conjure up Monaco's elegant past. Prince Albert II, a political science graduate from Amherst College, traces his ancestry to Otto Canella, who was born in 1070. The Grimaldi dynasty began with Otto's great-great-great-grandson, Francesco Grimaldi, also known as Frank the Rogue. Expelled from Genoa, Frank and his cronies disguised themselves as monks and in 1297 seized the fortified medieval town known today as Le Rocher (the Rock). Except for a short break under Napoléon, the Grimaldis have been here ever since, which makes them the oldest reigning family in Europe. In the 1850s a Grimaldi named Charles III made a decision that turned the Rock into a giant blue chip. Needing revenue but not wanting to impose additional taxes on his subjects, he contracted with a company to open a gambling facility. The first spin of the roulette wheel was on December 14, 1856. There was no easy way to reach Monaco then—no carriage roads or railroads—so no one came. Between March 15 and March 20, 1857, one person entered the casino—and won two francs. In 1868, however, the railroad reached Monaco, and it was filled with Englishmen who came to escape the London fog. The effects were immediate. Profits were so great that Charles eventually abolished all direct taxes. Almost overnight, a threadbare principality became an elegant watering hole for European society. Dukes (and their mistresses) and duchesses (and their gigolos) danced and dined their way through a world of spinning roulette wheels and bubbling champagne—preening themselves for nights at the opera, where such artists as Vaslav Nijinsky, Sarah Bernhardt, and Enrico Caruso came to perform. Along with the tax system, its sensational position on a broad, steep peninsula that bulges into the Mediterranean—its harbor sparkling with luxury cruisers, its posh mansions angling awnings toward the nearly perpetual sun—continues to draw the rich and famous. One of the latest French celebrities to declare himself "Monégasque," thus giving up his French passport, is superchef Alain Ducasse, who said that he made the choice out of affection for Monaco rather than tax reasons. Pleasure boats vie with luxury cruisers in their brash beauty and Titanic scale, and teams of handsome young men—themselves dyed blond and tanned to match—scour and polish every gleaming surface. As you might expect, all this glitz doesn't come cheap. Eating is expensive, and even the most modest hotels cost more here than in nearby Nice or Menton. As for taxis, they don't even have meters so you are completely at the driver's mercy (with prices skyrocketing during events such as the Grand Prix). For the frugal, Monaco is the ultimate day-trip, although parking is as coveted as a room with a view. At the very least you can afford a coffee at Starbucks. The harbor district, known as La Condamine, connects the new quarter, officially known as Monte Carlo with Monaco-Ville (or Le Rocher), a medieval town on the Rock, topped by the palace, the cathedral, and the Oceanography Museum. Have no fear that you'll need to climb countless steps to get to Monaco-Ville, as there are plenty of elevators and escalators climbing the steep cliffs. But shuttling between the lovely casino grounds of Monte Carlo and Old Monaco, separated by a vast port, is a daunting proposition for ordinary mortals without wings, so hop on the No. 1 bus from Saint Roman, or No. 2 from the Jardin Exotique - Both stop at Place du Casino and come up to Monaco Ville.

Côte d'Azur Flightseeing

Marvel at the dramatic coastline of the famed French Riviera in the air and take in spectacular views of Port Hercules, home to some of the most luxurious yachts in the world and the location of the James Bond film GoldenEye.

From here, your flight continues over the Cap Martin, Menton and the Italian border.


The return flight travels towards the village of La Turbie for a look at the famous 'Trophée d'Auguste', a Roman monument symbolising the power of Rome and the glory of Augustus. Now only 115 feet (35 meters) in height, the ruin is still an imposing monument 2,000 years after it was built.

Hilltop Villages of French Riviera - Roquebrune and St Agnes

Roquebrune Cap Martin Village

Departure from Monaco, along the Coast to Roquebrune Cap Martin Village famous for one of its host: Swiss born Architect Le Corbusier.

The village offers the visitor a very picturesque walk among his curiosities, the Rue PIE: with its very close support arches, the stalemate of the oven and beautiful panorama of Monaco .Enjoy some greatest views on the Mediterranean Sea.

Saint Agnes

Monaco green Secrets

Gardening enthusiasts and plant-lovers of all kinds adore this excursion to discover the best-kept secrets of Monaco, the city's incredible gardens. Led by an expert botanist, explore three different gardens of Monaco in the city's most important parks. Your guide leads you to the most interesting plant species and park facts.


On your four-hour tour visit the Japanese Garden, the famous Casino Garden (of Bond movie fame) and the Little Africa garden. As part of your tour, go back to the time of the dinosaurs and find some of the oldest trees in existence (from 200 million years ago): the living fossils of the Wollemi Pine along with other ancient species.


Japanese Garden

The Japanese Garden was created in 1994 when Prince Rainier III commissioned the Zen landscape architect Yasuo Beppu of Japan to create a truly unique Zen garden that uses both Japanese and Mediterranean plants. In addition to receiving expert commentary, enjoy the sensory experience of the smell of the floral perfumes and the visual splendor of the garden's unique bonsai landscape. Features of the garden include all that one might expect of a Japanese garden, including a pond with islands, a waterfall, a tea house and a Zen garden. The garden is still maintained by Mr. Beppu, who returns annually to work with the gardeners. Discover the Japanese Garden for 90 minutes before walking to the Casino Gardens to see more.


Casino and Little Africa Gardens

The Casino Gardens, also called the gardens of the Société des Bains de Mer, were developed at the same time as the Monte-Carlo Casino. The gardens were built in 1893 and designed by architect Edouard André, who was inspired by the fashion of the French Riviera. Stroll through the waterfalls, streams and landscaped valleys amidst the brightly-hued tropical plants that have served as the backdrop for several James Bond films. Contained within the Casino Gardens is the unique "Little Africa" garden, which is full of subtropical and tropical species, including trees with impressive aerial roots and vast, buttress-like branches.


After an hour's tour of the Casino Gardens, enjoy some free time to relax, take in the garden views, or discover more plant species. Walk back to the Japanese Garden and transfer back to the ship.

Sustainable Monaco with Market Tasting

Discover the opulent elegance of Monaco's highlights on a walking tour that shows you the history of Monte Carlo's grace and glamour (and gardens!), followed by a delicious tasting of local specialties at the much-photographed Condamine Market at the grand Place d'Armes.


Monaco Guided Walking Tour

Cross the busy Hercule harbour by ferry (15 minutes) and begin your 90-minute walking tour of Monaco.

Begin in the Monte Carlo quarter and learn the history of the Casino and Opera House. Interestingly, the brainchild and force behind the success of the Monte Carlo Casino is thanks to Princess Caroline, mother to Prince Charles III (who commissioned the successful building that opened in 1879); Princess Caroline is responsible for finding the right manager François Blanc (aka The Magician of Monte Carlo) and architect (Charles Garnier, who also designed the Paris Opera House) to execute her vision. The result is the grand and luxurious casino for which Monte Carlo is famous today, a glorious example of belle epoque architecture. Tour the interior of the Opera House that adjoins the Casino, enjoying its richly furnished interior, with a marble foyer, columns of onyx and exquisitely ornate bas relief sculptures in gold.


Walk also past Hotel de Paris, the Café de Paris and the incredible Casino gardens that have been featured in several James Bond films. The gardens were built in 1893 and designed by architect Edouard André, who was inspired by the fashion of the French Riviera. Stroll through the waterfalls, streams and landscaped valleys amidst the brightly-hued tropical plants and see the unique "Little Africa" garden, which is full of subtropical and tropical species, including trees with impressive aerial roots and vast, buttress-like branches.


Place d'Armes and Marché de la Condamine

Your walking tour leads you to the covered market of the Marché de la Condamine on Place d'Armes. Open daily, the open-air market sells Monaco's freshest fruit, vegetables and flowers and is a delight for touring photographers wishing to snap photos of the vibrant local colour, including the much-photographed and yellow-striped tented market stands framed by the elegant buildings and fountain at the Place d'Armes.


Also featured in the market are specialty meets, cheeses, wine and other domestic goods. Enjoy a tasting of local specialties (with table service) and browse the market for a bit before returning to the ship.



Please note: This tour involves moderate activity, with about 1.5km walking over mostly level surfaces and 300 meters of additional uphill walking. This tour is not suitable for guests with mobility limitations, as this is a walking tour and guests must be able to keep pace with the group. This excursion is not wheelchair accessible. 50 m of difference in altitude with a staircase of about 30 steps. Periods of standing expected but there are benches along the way.

2NT POST-CRUISE: VILLA D'ESTE RETREAT

Indulge your senses with the splendid beauty, history and architecture of Italy during this memorable visit to Cernobbio and the legendary Villa d'Este. Just imagine…two wonderful days to relax and enjoy this legendary property and the surrounding region in Lake Como.


Please note: Guests participating in this program should schedule their flights to depart from Milan's Malpensa Airport.


Day 1 - ARRIVE CERNOBBIO

Upon disembarkation, collect your luggage and begin your transfer to the town of Cernobbio, located north of the town of Como. The drive normally takes about 3.5 - 4 hours with comfort stops enroute. Upon arrival, proceed for check-in at the Villa d'Este, the legendary, 16th-century villa nestled on the shores of Lake Como. The balance of the afternoon and evening are spent at your leisure in this world-class resort. Lunch and dinner are on your own.


Overnight at the Villa d'Este - Cernobbio, ltaly


Day 2 - CERNOBBIO

After breakfast at the hotel, the balance of the day is spent at your leisure exploring the area or simply relaxing amidst your exquisite surroundings. You may opt to take a boat-ride on the lake to the 16th-century Villa Balbianello, located on the extreme tip of a wooded promontory called Dosso di Lavedo. Thanks to its rugged terrain, the peninsula has retained the extraordinary natural features that enhance the solitary and romantic nature of the villa. In 1974, the villa was willed to the Fondo Ambiente Italiano, which has since opened it to the public. The Concierge is happy to assist you with making these or other arrangements. Lunch and dinner are on your own.

Upon arrival at Malpensa Airport in Milan, you are met and transferred to the town of Cernobbio, located north of the town of Como. The drive normally takes about 1 hour. Upon arrival, proceed for check-in at the Villa d'Este, the legendary, 16th-century villa nestled on the shores of Lake Como. The balance of the afternoon and evening are spent at your leisure in this world-class resort. Lunch and dinner are on your own.


Overnight at the Villa d'Este - Cernobbio, ltaly


Day 2 - CERNOBBIO

After breakfast at the hotel, the balance of the day is spent at your leisure exploring the area or simply relaxing amidst your exquisite surroundings. You may opt to take a boat-ride on the lake to the 16th-century Villa Balbianello, located on the extreme tip of a wooded promontory called Dosso di Lavedo. Thanks to its rugged terrain, the peninsula has retained the extraordinary natural features that enhance the solitary and romantic nature of the villa. In 1974, the villa was willed to the Fondo Ambiente Italiano, which has since opened it to the public. The Concierge is happy to assist you with making these or other arrangements. Lunch and dinner are on your own.
