    • Monte Carlo to Ventimiglia

      by Nathanielwade1 Online Now Feb 25, 2015 at 10:03 AM

      Hello helpful People!

      I am inquiring about travel from Monte Carlo to Ventimiglia on March 19th

      I have a booking from Ventimiglia to Milano Centrale already. Departing at 2:52pm

      I cannot book via Trenitalia, as the only train I see available is too late for us.

      I would like to book one of the SNCF trains from Monte Carlo to Ventimiglia instead. Is it necessary to do this n advance? Would it be cheaper? Or would booking it be the same cost during the time of departure?

      Thanks in advance!!!

    • Poor in Monaco

      by Nathanielwade1 Online Now Feb 19, 2015 at 10:07 AM

      I have a crazy question but here goes:
      So a friend and I have decided to visit Monte Carlo for 2 nights while on a week long stay in Milan. We ARE NOT RICH at all! So, we were looking at things / areas that would be suitable for budget conscious travels. We can spend hundreds but not thousands for a good time. But if someone could suggest great activities (day and night) to do while we are there that aren't expensive or reasonable, I would greatly appreciate it.

      Up to the palace from Place des Armes

      by Ekaterinburg Online Now Oct 14, 2013 at 6:24 AM

      The public buses 1 and 2 go to Monaco Ville from Place Des Armes. The bus stop is several streets away from the palace but I'm wondering if it's on the same level ? In other words is there a climb involved or is all of Monaco Ville more or less on the same gradient ? Failing that would it be possible to get a taxi from Place Des Armes ? Unfortunately, due to defective lungs, the steep climb is not an option.

      We will be docking in Villefranche for a cruise on May 11. I asked a tour company about visiting Monaco/Monte Carlo on this day and they have refused as the Grand Prix starts that day. Is it so crowded/crazy that we should avoid the area or would it be possible to take the train on our own? We dock at 8am and should be back onboard by 7pm.

      My cousin and I are planning our yearly trip and this year we have decided Monaco and surrounding cities.

      A few questions

      1. Would it be more beneficial to rent an apt in Nice or Monaco? (or just bounch around every day to different cities)?

      2. Would it be better to rent a scooter or car?

      3. Were both 28 years old, so we still like to check out some clubs or popular bars in the evening (not just Friday or Saturday)

      4. What cities would you suggest we visit in one week?

      Thank you, any information would be very helpful.

      URGENT!! English to French power point adaptor?

      by JulesH Online Now Aug 24, 2009 at 11:34 AM

      A real long shot I know, but does anyone have any idea where my other half can get hold of an English to French power point adaptor in Monaco? He left all his adaptors in my case when I flew back to the UK from Geneva and he flew straight to Monaco. He's now got no way of charging his phone or laptop and is supposed to be working in Monaco all week! EEK!! He really needs to get one for tomorrow if possible. If anyone can point us in the direction of somewhere that sells them, excellent! If anyone in the Monaco area is feeling generous enough to lend him one, he will promise to return it on Friday! He's staying at the Hotel Forum if that helps. We'd really appreciate any help anyone can give us. Thanks in anticipation!

I can not walk a mile up the hill. How can I get access to the Casino? The shore excursions offered will only get visitors as far as the Rock of Monaco, but not to the door of the casino.

      Could someone please inform me of whether the following statements are correct:

      1. A cab ride from NCE to Monte-Carlo is about a 50 minute ride.
      2. There is no train station in NCE airport, but there is one that is a 15 minute walk from Terminal 1.
      3. The train takes about 20-29 minutes between the two.

      I am backpacking around Europe and will be in Monte Carlo for a couple of nights and want to visit the famous Casino.

      I have been doing some research and most people say to enter the "main" casino, you need to be wearing formal clothing.

      I don't want to have to lug a paid of dress shoes around for 6 weeks when I am only going to wear them once...

      So my question is:

      Will I get into the main part of the Casino wearing:

      Suit Jacket
      Semi casual shoes
