Another world-famous Riviera destination is Monte Carlo in Monaco. Best enjoyed in the evening, we recommend chartering a yacht for a day cruise and have it drop you off in Monaco around sunset for dinner and drinks. That said, below is an itinerary to enjoy the sterling city of Monte Carlo during the day.
