The home of luxury
An MSC Mediterranean cruise will usher you through the glamorous world of Monte Car-lo. Skyscrapers, hotels and restaurants, beaches and luxury yachts, trendy clubs and ca-sinos, expensive cars and Formula 1... All make the most luxurious district of the Princi-pality of Monaco world-famous.
A popular destination with a Hollywood atmosphere celebrated in countless films. Past and recent architectural styles from all over the world give the place a truly international feel. The shops and restaurants on the highstreets fully embrace the cosmopolitan life-style.
The Hôtel de Paris and the renowned Casino of Monte Carlo are two destinations of an MSC Excursion both with the same Belle Époque style and same year of inauguration, 1863. Two icons that you can admire in their glory: the first, with recently renovated interi-ors, offers a perfect view over the Formula 1 circuit. The second, situated in the middle of the square of the same name, abounds with frescoes and gold and marble sculptures and has been the main attraction of the Principality for over 150 years.
Another MSC Excursion will take you on a walk among the most luxurious and expensive boats from all over the world, the super-yachts of Port Hercules. A modern and practical tourist port suitable to accommodate high-luxury pleasure ships of considerable size, after the modifications strongly required first by Prince Rainier III and then by his son Albert II.
On a walk among the most sumptuous and expensive boats from all over the world, pause to see the naval jewels moored at the Quai des États-Unis. You won't believe your eyes.
Everything seems to lead you farther into a fairy tale, like the MSC Excursion to Le Rocher, the "old city" of Monaco, the Prince’s Palace, home of Prince Albert II and his family, the Rock of Monaco, the Oceanographic Museum, with its 6,000 species of fish and animals, the elegant St. Martin gardens, the white Cathedral of Monaco and the monumental Palace of Justice.
