Monte Carlo is famous for its excess of fine restaurants, luxury hotels and, naturally, shopping. The rich and richer go here for designer shops and exquisite clothing. Take a stroll through Monte Carlo’s Carré d’Or (golden circle), the city-state’s best shopping district. Avenue des Beaux-Arts boasts labels such as Chanel, Christian Dior, Céline, Louis Vuitton and Yves Saint Laurent; while Avenue de Monte-Carlo has Gucci, Valentino, Prada, Hermès and Lalique. Like a giant-sized jewelry box, the Place du Casino glitters with shops such as Cartier, Chopard and Bulgari.
If you’re looking for more affordable shopping, head to Métropole Shopping Center. The marble-clad shopping center has a gorgeous oversized chandelier and more than 80 stores with a few designer boutiques sprinkled throughout.
