None other than Prince Rainier III funded and gifted this museum with his personal collection of cars; if you go gaga for autos you'll absolutely love the array on display here. There are nearly 100 vehicles, which range from carriages (as in horse-drawn ones) to the Rolls Royce that Grace Kelly rode in on her wedding. Visitors were impressed with the selection of vehicles on display – from racing cars to antiques – and said even those who aren't big car geeks will appreciate the collection.

Admission is 6.50 euros (or about $8), and you can visit the Museum of Antique Automobiles every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

#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.
