Monaco Sights

Casino Monte-Carlo

Fodor's Review

Place du Casino is the center of Monte Carlo and a must-see, even if you don't like to bet. Into the gold-leaf splendor of the casino, the hopeful descend from tour buses to tempt fate beneath the gilt-edge Rococo ceiling—and some spend much more than planned here, as did the French actress Sarah Bernhardt, who lost 100,000 francs. Jacket and tie are required in the back rooms, which open at 3 pm. Bring your passport (under-18s not admitted). Note that there are special admission fees to get into any of the period gaming rooms. For €10 you can also visit the casino daily in the off hours, from 9 am to 12:30 am, with access to all rooms.
