Casino Monte-Carlo

Take a trip to the glamorous heart of Monaco, where you can try your luck with games or simply explore the palatial landmark.

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.

Casino Monte-Carlo is in central Monaco, a 15-minute walk east from the train station. Starting in midafternoon, the casino has a strict over-18s-only policy. Tours and gaming access have fees. Spruce up before entering as a formal dress code is enforced at this time. Sneakers are banned and jackets and ties are advised for gentlemen in the evening.
