Monaco conjures up vivid images of high-stakes casinos, flashy events and the dazzling Mediterranean Sea. Add to the glamour by staying at one of these nearby castles, sprinkled between France, Italy and the city-state itself – they’re bookable on Culture Trip.
What Monaco lacks in size, it makes up for in awe-inspiring sights. Superyachts pepper the harbour, flanked by towering mountains on one side and the sparkling sea on the other. But did you know it’s surrounded by a slew of picture-perfect castles? If you’re after a truly royal stay, book one of these fantastic chateaux within striking distance of the Mediterranean microstate.
