The capital is a blend of towering high rise buildings and narrow windy roads, boasting the legendary Monte-Carlo Casino, luxury hotels, elegant nightclubs and restaurants, views of the sparkling Mediterranean and of course, the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix.
Monte-Carlo is a great place for people-watching or to enjoy fine dining. Gourmands can choose from three Michelin-starred restaurants as well as other excellent options. Monte-Carlo is intersected by two elegant boulevards, the Boulevard Princesse Charlotte in the west and the Boulevard des Moulins at its south-western end. There are many fashionable shopping streets, such as the Avenue de la Costa with its luxury boutiques.
