An open air theatre that used to be a fortress. Head here to get incredible views of the Mediterranean and beyond. Visiting in springtime will mean you can wander at any time of the day without getting too hot, though sunrise and sunset here are particularly captivating.
Spring couldn’t be a more perfect season to visit Monaco’s Japanese Garden. It will give you a little calm and ‘zen’ away from all the hustle and bustle, as well as providing you with the perfect blossom shots for your feed.
This is one of those beach-side – and, in this case, right on the beach – restaurants that you can only dream of before arriving in Monaco. Spring is the perfect time to be here: cooler, so not as busy, but still warm enough to want a little shade at midday. Another angle from which to view the beach and the principality.

Monaco’s architecture is scrumptious, and to be honest, there are too many beautiful buildings to choose from to just highlight a single landmark. Get out into the thick of it and enjoy the countless photo opportunities along the way. The old town, if we had to pick one, would be your best bet for numerous potential snap-happy moments.
There are over 8,000 rose bushes in the Princess Grace Rose Garden and so, if you want to inject colour into your Instagram feed, then this is the place to come in Monaco. Free of charge to enter (another bonus), spend an hour in its calm with your camera.
For gorgeous, springtime evenings in Monaco, head down to the port and feature not only the sparkling water but the super yachts in your feed. Any time of day is great down here: morning for that crisp shot or evening when the whole hillside looks to be twinkling.
Monaco’s iconic café is fabulous at any time of year for a coffee, a photo and a spot of people watching. Be one of the diners, turning their faces to the warm springtime sun in this ideal location. Who knows what you’ll be able to capture on your feed; at worst it’ll be a snap of some delicious drink or food. Pretty good, hey?

Being beach-side always makes for a great Instagram photo, so sometime during your springtime stay in Monaco, make sure to spend an afternoon at Larvotto Beach. The water will be at its warmest in the early afternoon and, because you’re on the Mediterranean, don’t rule out a dip as well.
One of the best things about Monaco’s Exotic Garden is its positioning within the principality. As Monaco is perched on the hillside, you don’t have to ascend too far to get an incredible view and this garden offers you just that. The colours in spring will be vibrant with the dormant time of year behind them for some vegetation.
For some of the deepest blues, have a drink at Saphir 24 and keep your camera at the ready. Not only are the views to die for but the exterior of this bar is quite something; bold lines and lots of glass makes for a striking photo moment for sure.
