Visitors to the Principality of Monaco will get a taste of both Italy and France, according to the region’s tourism authority.
The rich cultural diversity of the region was highlighted by Stephen Roberge, managing director at the Monaco Government Tourist Authority & Convention Bureau, who said that visitors could find a huge variety of things to see and do there. Mr Roberge claimed that Monaco boasted one of the greenest landscapes anywhere in the world, and also benefitted from a wealth of top quality spas and restaurants serving both French and Italian cuisines.
“When you stay in Monaco you are very close to France and Italy, so it’s buy one get two free,” said Mr Roberge.
The tourism MD also said that although the city-state has a reputation for high prices and luxury, it is not out of the reach of ordinary travellers looking for an unusual trip with a taste of the high life. Motorsports enthusiasts will be all too aware that the Monaco Grand Prix is one of the highlights of the Formula One calendar, and planning a visit around the race on the 27 May will allow fans to experience the unique atmosphere in Monte Carlo on race day.
