Monaco Vacation Packages

Monaco Vacation Packages

In a world with endless travel styles, few places evoke the idea of elegance the way Monaco does. The second smallest country in the world has built a reputation on living the good life.

Fast and luxurious cars can be found in the city on any given day, but overtake the city during May when the annual Formula Grand Prix takes place. The harbour is regularly filled with super-yachts with the azure waters of the French Riviera thought of as a place to be seen as well as get away from it all.

Monaco tours are a way to understand the culture of the area, and a chance to be amazed by all that glitters. The tiny country lies on a narrow coastal strip, which in some places rises vertically upwards with its...   Read More

Name:
Martin Charlton

EDUCATION:
Bachelor's Degree in Geography; further studies in Archaeology & Anthropology. Life's real education happens outside the classroom.

LANGUAGE:
English and some French & Spanish.

TOURS LED:
Having led tours for Adventures Abroad for almost 25 years, there are few corners of the globe where Martin’s left a stone unturned: everywhere from North Korea to Nauru, Saudi Arabia to Sudan, Guinea-Bissau to French Guiana. With over 200 tours through over 125 countries under his belt, it might be faster to list the regions where he hasn’t led a tour.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
"My love of travel and infectious enthusiasm for different cultures has taken me to over 155 countries. The further off the beaten path, the better. For a favourite place: perhaps South Georgia Island, the Canadian Arctic, or Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic. World's best city = Istanbul!"

ABOUT:
"Don't pack anything that you would be upset to lose, that needs to be ironed, or is encased in glass." - words to live by.

Name:
Jonathan Hodgson

EDUCATION:
BA in Psychology at McGill University; MBA at the University of British Columbia; self-educated passion for history and culture.

LANGUAGE:
English; conversational French; improving Spanish and Russian. And a decent Scottish accent.

TOURS LED:
I have led tours in over 100 countries over the last 14 years of working for Adventures Abroad on all of the continents except for Antarctica.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Where to begin? Each place has something that makes it a special destination. A few that spring to mind: Kaieteur Falls in Guyana; the snow-covered mountains of Ladakh, India; sipping tea in a chaikhana of the old town of Bukhara, Uzbekistan; and watching the changing colours of Uluru (Ayers Rock) at sunset.

ABOUT:
Jonathan has lived much of his life dedicated to the idea that he would rather have a wealth of experiences than a wealth of riches. Having taken up a nomadic lifestyle shortly after finishing his undergraduate degree, he has been on the move on and off over the last 25+ years. The wanderlust has taken him to basing himself in places such as Scotland, Australia and Uzbekistan, and to visiting many more locations around our planet. Now (sort of) settled in Vancouver with his wonderful (and patient) family, he still loves the idea of having the world as his office and always enjoys trying to capture the essence of the locations he travels and tours in with his photography.

Name:
Victor Romagnoli

EDUCATION:
HBA English BA History

LANGUAGE:
Being able to speak several languages has made travelling an enriching experience; the conversations one can so easily slip into with locals - who come from all walks of life - adds greatly to my feel for a place.

TOURS LED:
Over a span of almost 30 years, I have lead tours virtually all over the globe.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Some of my favourite tours just come into being suddenly as a result of a request; someone will ask me to put together an itinerary that will include the highlights of several countries and the next thing you know we have, for example, a tour to Uruguay, Paraguay & Bolivia, or Lesotho, Namibia & Botswana. Sometimes I will be asked to arrange a detailed itinerary to just one region within a country - like a close up look at Sicily or Crete or the Basque Country or Newfoundland. Without the keen curiosity that so many of you travellers have, none of these "spontaneous" tours would come into being. But they do.

ABOUT:
I love the excitement of getting up each morning on a tour and not knowing exactly how a day will unfold. It keeps me on my toes so to speak, and adds a breath of excitement to each day on tour. With almost 30 years of tour leading under my belt, I thank all of you for being a part of this exciting journey.

Name:
Chris Tripodi

EDUCATION:
University for Mathematics. College for Music. But the greatest education I've received has come from Earth while travelling. "Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you have travelled."

LANGUAGE:
I can ask 'Where is the toilet?' in 57 languages.

COUNTRIES VISITED:
80%. I need a new passport every 20 months.

TOURS LED:
West Africa to South Africa, El Salvador to Argentina, Samoa to Seychelles, Portugal to Romania, Jordan to Japan.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Departures hall.

ABOUT:
I travel because it is the most interesting thing I can think of doing between meals. The magic and the challenge of this job is seeing the world itself as the tour with several smaller journeys along the way. I enjoy that time at the end of one trip, before the start of a new one, where the sadness of leaving one place mixes with the excitement of approaching another.

In a world with endless travel styles, few places evoke the idea of elegance the way Monaco does. The second smallest country in the world has built a reputation on living the good life.

Fast and luxurious cars can be found in the city on any given day, but overtake the city during May when the annual Formula Grand Prix takes place. The harbour is regularly filled with super-yachts with the azure waters of the French Riviera thought of as a place to be seen as well as get away from it all.

Monaco tours are a way to understand the culture of the area, and a chance to be amazed by all that glitters. The tiny country lies on a narrow coastal strip, which in some places rises vertically upwards with its highest point at 206 feet. Nearly one fifth of the country exists on reclaimed land from the Mediterranean Sea.

The history of Monaco begins at the Rock, the area's main geological landmark. Used as a shelter for ancient peoples for centuries, it was transformed by the Genoese when a fortress was built in 1215. Now home to the Prince's Palace, the area of the Rock has many picture perfect settings including its Italian-style gallery, 15th century frescoes, Louis XVth lounge, the Throne Room and beautiful gardens.

The Prince's Palace remains an estate of the House of Grimaldi, a maritime leader in the 12th century that are descendants from one of the most powerful families of Genoa. Those interested in maritime might enjoy our stop along the Monaco tours in the famous Oceanographic Museum near the Palace.

The royal family of Monaco may have many crown jewels secured away in the jewel vaults at the Prince's Palace, but some of the real glitz of the country can be found in the casino of Monte Carlo. Known as an elite gambling destination, the casino was designed by French architect, Charles Garnier and was built in 1858. While the casino floor bans residents from gambling, the complex is home to more of Monaco''s iconic sights. Contained within the building is an opera and ballet house. Accessed by the casino's marble paved atrium, surrounded with ionic columns made of onyx, the Opera Hall is entirely decorated in red and gold, with bas-reliefs and sculptures.

Situated between Italy and France, Monaco tours also explain the religious importance in this small country. The Monaco Cathedral, a remarkable Roman-Byzantine church which is home to the burial places of past sovereigns, including Prince Rainier and Princess Grace. Built in 1875-1903 and consecrated in 1911, the Saint Nicholas Cathedral is found on the site of the first parish church in Monaco which was built in 1252.

As a micro-state in Europe, this Principality may have a reputation based on wealth but within its tiny borders is a worthwhile visit.
