Admire the Belle Époque grandeur of Casino Monte-Carlo during a morning tour through its marbled halls. Spend an evening playing at one of its many gambling tables. The elegant venue and smartly dressed patrons make this a popular destination for people looking for a gambling experience of the highest class. The famous casino attracts more than gamblers; it’s also popular among lovers of the arts who come to see ballet, opera and classical music in the Salle Garnier concert hall.
The main casino building was constructed in 1863, while the striking twin turrets of the façade were added later. Wander around the gilded interiors on one of the guided building tours, which are held every morning. The opulent rooms, each designed by different architects, have grand chandeliers, intricate 19th-century bas-reliefs and landscape paintings that run the width of the walls.
The casino offers a wide variety of games to suit the tastes of both casual fans and seasoned pros. Take part in classic games, such as blackjack or Texas Hold'em, or try a new game like punto banco, a form of baccarat. The rooms are separated into European and American games.
Gamble with the elite in the private rooms, where the very best play high-stakes matches reminiscent of a tense James Bond scene. Observers are welcome in the main halls, so feel free to simply watch the drama unfold without parting with your own money.
Enjoy a stylish night out at the Salle Garnier, which hosts the Opéra Monte-Carlo. Stars from the world of opera, theater and classical music frequently perform at the luxurious venue.

I really enjoyed Novotel. I had no expectations and when i arrived i was amazed because the place is so new and really nice and modern. Very clean and home-y. Cheers
The Fairmont is ideally situated, next door to the Casino and with easy access to the harbour, restaurants and F1 circuit.
Great location and spectacular views and rooms. The Hotel is located near all the great shopping and easy to walk to restaurants . We spent 2 nights here before getting on the Silversea cruise . We will return at the end of our voyage and it is a slice of pure delight!
Beautiful hotel renovated to the highest standards. Most obliging staff so friendly and helpful. Can’t wait for my next visit!
Outstanding service. Heated pool was a little cold, otherwise, best stay of my life. Spa was exceptional!
