Plant lovers and horticulturists unite: The Exotic Garden, which lies along La Condamine's cliffs, is "fantastic," according to recent visitors. This garden has been open for more than 75 years and has cultivated an extensive collection of rare plants and cacti. You'll see more than 1,000 plant species – and even a deep underground cave – but in order to tour its stalagmites and stalactites, you'll need to follow a guide.

Open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 or 7 p.m., depending on the season, tickets cost 7.20 euros (or about $8.50). For more information, visit the website.

#1 Larvotto Beach

One of Monaco's most popular beaches, Larvotto is a free-to-the-public shore located just a short walk from Monte-Carlo. But like many French Riviera beaches, this one has pebbles rather than sand, so bring some sturdy shoes and be prepared to shell out some euros for a chair rental.

Travelers recommend this shoreline for visitors of all ages since the water is shallow and calm, and the beach and its facilities are clean. However, families should keep in mind that some beachgoers sun topless here. You should also note that this beach is very popular, so if you want a spot in the sand, you should plan to get there early.
