This Monaco-Ville cathedral is probably most popular because it contains the grave of Grace Kelly, the actress-turned-princess of Monaco. Its history also dates a bit further back: The site once held a 13th-century church, but the current cathedral hails from the late 19th century. Inside, you can admire its regal features, which include a white marble altar and an exquisite grand organ. Recent travelers said they were impressed by the beauty of this religious site and highly recommend touring inside.

The cathedral is open daily for tours from 8:30 a.m. to 6 or 7 p.m. – except during Mass services – free of charge. For more information, visit the Monaco tourism board 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.
