What to Do in Monaco During the Day


The thousand-year-old Eze Village clings, almost impossibly, to a hilltop 1,300 feet above the Côte d’Azur.

Although not in Monaco itself, it is a smart day trip from the crowded principality. Have your concierge arrange a car or chauffeur to take you on the 20-minute drive up the steep roads. The village itself is too narrow for cars, so explore these charming cobbled streets on foot before dining at one of the village’s fine restaurants. In Eze Village you are spoiled for Michelin-choice, there is the one starred Restaurant Château Eza and the two starred Château de la Chèvre d’Or. Whichever one you choose, the beautifully prepared modern Mediterranean cuisine combined with those astonishing views across the Côte d’Azur, Cap Ferrat and Cap Martin will remain a treasured memory.
