Monaco is a captivating place to live in. In an area no bigger than New York’s Central Park, you have incredible restaurants, a world famous casino, a charming old town and so much more. No wonder it’s a dream location – and here’s why you need to set your sights on it!

Real estate

Monaco boasts some of the most incredible real estate in the world. If you have the funds (good on you!), then this is certainly the place to be investing in. The new Odeon Tower takes luxury to, quite literally, new heights! Elsewhere in Monaco, there are dazzling other complexes to be viewed. Take a look at Culture Trip’s recap on Monaco’s neighbourhoods to tickle your property buds.

Culture and lifestyle

Mediterranean beach


Monaco enjoys a delightful position within Europe. Those living here can experience a true Monegasque way of life, knowing that within a matter of minutes, they can be in France and are only about 40 minutes away from Italy and its gorgeous coastline. Mercantour National Park is just to the north, and to the west is Nice along with its airport.

Ventimiglia Old Town


When it comes to sports, there can’t be a better place to live in than Monaco. The famous Grand Prix is held each year and sport generally has a big place here. The Louis II Stadium hosts French football matches and is also used for track, volleyball and more. For an Olympic-sized outdoor pool, Monaco has the Rainier III Nautical Stadium, so whether you’re living here or just visiting, this huge pool is a great spot to cool off. Water sport options are almost endless: windsurfing, water-skiing and many more. Monaco’s yacht club is loved by sailing enthusiasts and if you’re into hiking, the principality boasts many fantastic walking routes right close by.
