|About these ratings|
Perhaps the attraction that best exemplifies Monaco's capital city is its casino. The building's Beaux-Arts design was overseen by Charles Garnier, architect of the Paris opera. And likewise, this grand casino also contains the city's opera and ballet. If this complex looks familiar, it's because you might've seen it before in the "Bond, James Bond" films, Never Say Never Again and Goldeneye. It was also the inspiration for the casino in Ian Fleming’s first Bond book, Casino Royale.
To get in, you must be 18 years old, properly attired (the more glamorous, the better) and you must pay the €10 EUR fee. After that, it’s up to you as to how much money you want to lose, ahem spend, at roulette, black jack, the slots, etc. The casino opens at 2 p.m. For more information, visit the official website.
