It's impossible not to recognize the facade of Monte Carlo casino, whether from European travel guides or James Bond movies. Walk inside and have a look around at its ornate marble atrium. Play a hand of blackjack. Or simply stay near the entrance and gawk at the long line of Lamborghinis and Maseratis the valet attendant is busy parking.
The only thing more rewarding than ascending the hill where Monaco's resplendent Prince's Palace sits? The view you enjoy from the top, whether of Monte Carlo's iconic yacht port beneath, France's Cote d'Azur to your west and the start of Italy's Ligurian coast to your right. Now that's a view fit for a prince or princess.
