This is going to be slightly biased since i actually do work for the tourism of the Principality of Monaco, but for any destination in the world, there is bound to be hidden spots which remain undiscovered even after years.
I have to say that thanks to work perks of finding out the insiders’ tips to Monaco, I was able to visit many of these hidden gems and I would be happy to share all of these with you. This also comes after contributing these ‘local tips’ to a new and upcoming travel website called Touring Bird.
Food: It amazes me how a small country like Monaco is able to cultivate or produce their own ingredients and recipes. From local beers to local orange liquors, you can get a bona fide Monegasque product, and not just any other postcard. I also had the pleasure to enjoy oysters and seafood at the port of Monaco, nothing compares to that right?
Unique views: Man, did I have to go the distance (literally) to find some money-can’t-buy views over the Principality. As the saying goes, there ain’t free lunches in this world! Scaling up a local hidden carpark; walking uphill along meandering coastal drives; climbing up emergency ladders… the easiest view was probably this sunset view at Port Fontvieille. As for the others… I’ll leave it for you to discover them on your own!
Pretentious pictures: Well, who can resist taking a luxe photo at the Casino Square right in the heart of Monte-Carlo, Monaco? Especially upon visiting the legendary Salle Empire at the Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo, where the world’s most iconic aristocratic gatherings and galas have taken place! Took a ‘Secret’-esque (Taiwanese movie featuring Jay Chou) photo as memory, with the Casino de Monte-Carlo as the background – Timeless!
