Thousands of roses blossom and diffuse their sweet scents in Fontvieille’s Princess Grace Rose Garden. Located in the southeastern corner of Monaco, this garden is a great place to find respite from bustling Monte-Carlo. Here, you’ll also find palm and olive trees; and while in the area, you should take time to explore Fontvieille Park itself, especially the contemporary sculptures strewn throughout. Travelers say the park is a peaceful oasis situated amid the glitz and glamour of Monaco. Many add that while the garden is small, it's well-maintained and filled with a variety of colorful flowers.

Free of admission, you can visit this garden every day from sunrise to sunset.

#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.
