4. About Monaco


Monaco is a petite autonomous principality nestled along the French Riviera, serving as its own capital. Officially known as the Principality of Monaco, it spans a mere 2.1 square kilometers in area. To put this size into perspective, imagine the shores of Lake Peipsi in Estonia, where the city of Kallaste boasts an area nearly equal to that of the principality, at 2.7 square kilometers. However, despite their comparable size, there's a stark contrast in population. While Kallaste is home to a modest population of 705 residents, Monaco boasts a bustling community of over 31 thousand inhabitants.

Book a taxi from Nice airport to Monaco. English-speaking drivers to Monaco


However, the taxi has its own nuances:

    • The advertised price for a taxi ride to Monaco typically starts from 95 euros, but in reality, it often amounts to around 120-130 euros for a group of 2-3 passengers. The final fare is influenced by various factors, such as additional charges for each piece of luggage, exceeding four passengers, evening or holiday surcharges, and a supplemental fee of 27.30 euros per hour for extended travel due to traffic congestion.
    • Passengers are responsible for covering toll fees for the roads, which are not included in the initial fare.
    • It can be challenging to find taxis offering business or premium class vehicles. Additionally, the availability and condition of the vehicles may sometimes be subpar.
    • Communication with taxi drivers can be inconvenient, as many of them are proficient only in French, making it difficult for non-French-speaking passengers to communicate effectively.
    • Since the beginning of 2023, French taxi drivers are permitted to transport passengers from Nice to Monaco. However, the reverse journey, from Monaco to Nice, can only be undertaken by drivers registered in Monaco, creating limitations on the availability of taxis for certain routes.


The fare for a taxi from Nice airport to Monaco for a group of four people typically ranges from 248 to 275 euros during daytime hours. However, during evening hours, from 18:00 to 08:00, the fare increases to a range of 310 to 330 euros. It's worth noting that for groups of five people or more, the cost is higher, and finding van taxis can be challenging. Additionally, clients are responsible for covering toll road fees, which typically amount to an additional 20 euros on top of the fare.

The whole country is one city, which consists of 4 main districts: the oldest is Monaco; the administrative and economic heart of the state - Monte Carlo; industrial - Fontvieille; port - La Condamine.

Also, the inhabitants of Monaco use English, Italian and Monegasque in conversation.



1) History of Monaco:


Archaeologists find traces of prehistoric people in rock caves on the coast and some islands. In one of the stalactite dungeons, a cave-observatory complex was created. Tours are conducted here daily, starting at 10 am with an interval of 1 hour. Groups are recruited on the spot.


History of Monaco


In ancient history, Monaco was a coastal Greek settlement. The Ligurians called it Monoikos, which means "lonely house" in Greek. An ancient myth says that Hercules quarreled with the Olympian gods, decided to live as a hermit and settled in the area of the rock of Monaco. In honor of the hero, the Greeks erected a temple. Accordingly, “lonely” is a reference to the fact that this is the only temple built in honor of a demigod, and the only house on earth where he lived. Hercules was so respected that until now mentions of him are found in toponyms. The largest port of Monaco is also called the Port of Hercules.

After the collapse of the Roman Empire, the territory was ravaged by barbarians and Saracens. Following the expulsion of the Saracens, it was occupied by the Ligurians. In 1215, a detachment of Genoese Ghibellines (supporters of the emperor) began the construction of a military outpost on the rock of Monaco. It was necessary to create a settlement around the fortress to support the garrison and provide food. In order to attract the inhabitants of Genoa to settle in a new place, the Ghibellines offered land and tax incentives to newcomers. And since clashes between the Ghibellines and the Guelphs (supporters of the Pope) continued in Genoa, those who wanted to move were quickly found.


History of Monaco (Monte Carlo)


In 1297, Francisco Grimaldi, disguised as a Franciscan friar, along with his cousin Renier and his men captured the castle. The current ruling dynasty is the descendants of Renier I. Francisco was married, but died childless. He and his brother managed to hold the fortress for several years, then the struggle went on with varying success. The rock of Monaco became Grimaldi's hereditary possession after 1419, when the sons of Rainier II bought it from the then Queen Yolande of Aragon.

In the courtyard we see Spanish cannons of the 16th century, and inside the building there are models of ancient and modern ships.



Prince's Palace of Monaco

Prince's Palace of Monaco

The Prince's Palace of Monaco (Palais de Monaco) is the residence of the princes of Monaco. Initially, it was a Genoese fortress built in 1191, then it was expanded and rebuilt many times. Since the end of the 13th century, the palace has belonged to the Grimaldi family. Due to the size of the state and the eternal confrontation with stronger neighbors, the princes of Monaco were forced not to build a luxurious residence, but to have a very fortified palace, which turned the Palais de Monaco into a unique architectural monument. Although at the end of the 18th century for 20 years the palace was still occupied by the French. Also unique is the fact that this palace has remained the same royal residence for 700 years! So the entire financial and political state of the Grimaldi family was reflected in the architecture of the princely palace.

True, often you have to wait for 2 hours to get a place in the port. 99% of the port belongs to the Prince of Monaco. Monte Carlo Opera

Of course, the main place of Monaco is Monte Carlo. This is where most tourists go. And the fame of this city, of course, by the casino! There are two of them on the main square: Monte Carlo casino and Café de Paris casino. There is also a luxurious Hôtel de Paris. Anyone can enter the casino. Entrance - 17 euro, for a full acquaintance they will give an audio guide. Don't forget to dress decently and leave your cameras in the cloakroom. Shorts and T-shirts are not allowed in the casino.

View Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix

View Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix

The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the most famous stages of Formula 1. It has been held since 1950, but even before that, racing competitions were held here. The Monte Carlo circuit runs throughout the country. Fireballs drive on "normal" roads, on which ordinary cars and buses run on simple days. If you suddenly don’t get to Formula 1 itself (competitions take place at the end of May), then you can see the cars that participated and won on the Monte Carlo track in different years at the Monaco Automobile Museum. You can also purchase the official symbols of the tournament.

Swiming in the sea

Swiming in the sea in Monaco

Monte Carlo has some of the best beaches in the world. They are quite small and artificial, as the country stands on the rocks. But staying here is a pleasure. It's not sand or rocks. This is a small pebble, which, on the one hand, does not remain in the hair, and on the other, it is extremely pleasant to lie on it. Most of the beaches are free.


7) Different ways to get to Monaco:


There are several ways to get from Côte d'Azur to the dwarf principality. They differ in the time you spend on the road, as well as in cost and comfort. There is no universal advice here: choose what suits you personally.


Getting to Monaco by Bus:

How to get to Monaco by Bus

About every half an hour, bus number 110 leaves Nice Airport, bound for Monaco. He calls at both terminals, and then follows non-stop to the dwarf state. The bus runs daily from 8:45 am to 9:00 pm. You will spend about 30 minutes on the way. Tickets can be bought both on the spot (at the bus station next to exit A0 in Terminal 1 and at the bus station next to exit A1 / A2 in Terminal 2), and in advance - on the official express bus website. By the way, in any case, I advise you to visit it shortly before your trip: possible changes in the movement and schedule of the shuttles are published there. A one-way trip will cost 22 EUR, but if you want to save money, you can immediately take round-trip tickets, then you will pay only 33 EUR. If you issue a ticket through the website, be sure to print it: the driver has every right not to accept the copy shown on the smartphone screen.



Getting to Monaco by train:

Getting to Monaco by train

Gare Nice-Saint-Augustin is the closest train station to the airport in Nice, it is only half a kilometer away. The inconspicuous pale pink building does not look like large and noisy European stations, but this is where you can catch the train to Monaco. The ticket will cost a little less than 4 EUR, the travel time will be a little more than 20 minutes. On the one hand, you will have to walk to the station, and it is not very convenient to do this with a suitcase in your hands. But on the other hand, during the trip you will have beautiful views of the Cote d'Azur, and on the way (unlike the bus) you are unlikely to get sick.



Getting to Monaco by taxi:

Getting to Monaco by taxi

Pretty fast but very expensive way to get to Monaco. You can take a taxi right at the exit from the airport, there are always at least a few cars “on duty”. Detailed rates and tariffs can be found on the official website of Côte d'Azur. I flew in at different times, and there were always at least a few cars near the exit. However, if you still want to book a taxi in advance, use specialized services that organize transfers. The trip will cost at least 100 EUR, but if there are traffic jams at the entrance to the principality or the driver chooses an unsuccessful road, you will have to pay more. A friend complained to me that at one time a taxi from Nice to Monaco cost him more than an air ticket from St. Petersburg to Nice.



Getting to Monaco by helicopter:

Getting to Monaco by helicopter

The most unusual and, of course, the fastest way! Calling a helicopter just a transport does not turn my tongue: this is a separate dizzying experience, which, unfortunately, will last only 7 minutes. During this time, you can have time to admire Monaco and the Cote d'Azur from a bird's eye view.



Rent a car:

Rent a car

You can rent a car right at Nice Airport: all the leading companies involved in this business are represented there (Advantage, Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, Entreprise, Fire Fly, Goldcar, Sixt and others). In Terminal 1, their booths are located near gates A1/A2, on the side of the information centre; in terminal 2 - between gates A2 and A3. You can get acquainted with the rates and types of cars, compare offers and choose the best one on the Côte d'Azur website or here. I personally did not notice significant differences in price between renting at the airport and renting in the city from official suppliers.

To book a car, you only need a credit card. Picking it up is a little more difficult: be sure to take everything you need with you: a voucher confirming that you have made a payment; credit/debit card with sufficient funds; valid rights (many companies require them to be at least 12 or 24 months old); passport or other identification.


8) Nightclubs and partis in Monaco:


Everything in the southern city of Monaco is all about entertainment. The whole of Monaco is a big fun! But a little more about nightclubs and bars, which are so great to go to after a day at the beach or shopping.


Nightclubs and partis in Monaco


Black Legend

(Quai Albert 1er/Route de la Piscine)

This new dance club has already won over local party-goers and out-of-town jet-setters. The emphasis is on quality music, mostly R'n'B, soul and rock, although there are occasional retro parties with cute '70s hits. You can come here in the afternoon at the beginning of the week to have a coffee or a refreshing cocktail, but on the weekend this number will not work - you have to dance until the morning! Working hours: Sunday-Tuesday 12:00-00:00, Wednesday-Saturday 00:00-05:00



(26, av Princesse Grace)

This is a place not to be missed during your trip to Monte Carlo. The most beautiful people come here to "look and be seen". If you want to fit into this crazy atmosphere, put on the trendiest stylish outfits to the club. The dance floor is filled with people almost always, the music is booming, the energy is going through the roof every night. Theme nights happen here regularly, and you just can't help but go to the coolest party "Tennis in Cuba Night." Opening hours: May-September, daily 23:30 – until dawn; October-April Wed-Sun 23:30 -03:00 (or a little later or earlier, but not as much as in summer)



(10, av Princesse-Grace, Grimaldi Forum)

According to some, this is the most prestigious club in the city. The club is adored by the young and trendy, DJs play energetic house and R&B, abstract video projections heat up dancing on the walls behind the DJs; sofas and chairs a la the times of Louis XVI; neon and silver elements add expression. The young and beautiful crowd loves the theme parties that are held in this club, such as Night Fashion or Grease Night. If you want to sit at a table, it is better to book it a week or two in advance, especially in summer, because the club is very, very popular. Working hours: summer - Mon-Fri 09:00-04:30, Sat-Sun 18:00-04:30. Winter - Mon-Fri 09:00-18:00 Thu-Fri 09:00-04:30, Sat 06:00-04:30


Le Cabaret du Casino

(Place du Casino)

One of the most famous cabarets in Europe fully highlights the best traditions of this avant-garde entertainment. Live music, professional dancers and colorful costumes are what makes this show so popular with locals and tourists alike. The show program changes every year, usually starting in September and until mid-June. You can have dinner in the restaurant at the club, before the show (well, so that later nothing distracts you from staring at the sparkling stage and dancers in high heels). Then you can order snacks and cocktails, champagne and wine (the choice, by the way, is quite impressive). Prices in the club are not particularly low, but it's worth it! Booking is a must for the club as the place is extremely popular and a jacket and tie for men and a smart dress or suit for girls are a must. In summer, the main events take place in the luxurious Star Hall. Opening hours: bar and restaurant: Wednesday-Saturday 20:30-01:00; show: Wednesday-Saturday at 22:30


Le Sea Lounge

(av Princesse-Grace, Monte Carlo Beach Hotel)

On the most prestigious private beach in Monaco is the "Marine Lounge", a very popular place. Bottles of champagne, flower petal-studded floors and tables greet you, setting the tone for a luxurious night out. Sit under the canopy and order some delicious tapas or something else before the party starts. During the summer, there are special events such as the Pink Party, which guarantee fiery dances until dawn. A unique and quite expensive bar with a wonderful view of the sea is sure to be remembered for a lifetime. Schedule: mid-May-mid-September every day 16:00-00:00 (or later).


Living Room

(7, av des Spelugues, La Terrasse de Monte Carlo)

This exclusive club has fairly tight dress and face control at the entrance, keep in mind. And all for the sake of the best parties with wild dancing, excellent service, entertainment program, as well as a variety of drinks. The interior is very tastefully decorated, with soft sofas and chairs around small round tables. Entertainment consists of performances by talented DJs and skilled pianists. Delicious cocktails and light snacks are also available for club guests. Large groups can be accommodated at large tables (advance notice and reservation required). We dress in this club stylishly and elegantly. Opening hours: every day 23:00 - until dawn
