Our activity ideas for a local day out

 
 

Would you like to add a touch of local character to your time in Monaco? Our itinerary introduces you to the Principality with a range of top local activities, so you and your colleagues can enjoy a unique Monegasque experience.

Morning walks in the Principality

 

Start your day in Monaco by calling in at the shopping area known as Condamine. Its market opens daily, creating its own little whirlwind of scents and savors. There are also Mediterranean specialties to try, including pan bagnat sandwiches, pissaladière pizzas, barbagiuan ravioli, pavés du Rocher candies and much more besides. Afterwards, you won’t have to travel too far for the next step in your sensory journey: a glass of Monaco’s orange liqueur. Head to L’Orangerie on 9 Rue de La Turbie for yours. It is made using the Principality’s own oranges and goes perfectly with a spritz for an unfailingly refreshing aperitif.

 

The best places for oysters

Perles de Monaco

 

 Oyster lovers adore Monaco’s own “pearls”, so be sure not to miss them. They are grown at Fontvieille port and always amaze with their slightly salty Mediterranean notes. You will find various highly regarded places to try them during your day spent exploring the local area. If you are looking for an authentic setting, savor a platter in the “Pearls of Monaco” port itself or at the Café de Paris Monte-Carlo on the Place du Casino.

 

Top activities on the “Rocher”

After your revitalizing break, there are several iconic sites for you to explore as part of your uniquely Monegasque day.

For example, you can wander from aquarium to aquarium at the Oceanographic Museum. Its exhibitions, guided tours and virtual reality attractions plunge you straight into the deep blue sea. On the other hand, esthetes will be keen to call in at Monaco’s art museum, the Villa Paloma. If your guests are interested in nature, the Jardin Exotique overlooking the city transports visitors with its vast collection of succulents, as well as the grotto at its foothills. Last but not least, thanks to the urban farming company “Terre de Monaco”, your group can try everything from herb and flower tasting to zero-waste workshops and learn about gardening and all the benefits it brings.
