The nearest airport is in Nice, just over the border in France, and a number of low cost airlines fly there, including easyJet, Monarch and Germanwings. The journey from Nice to Monte Carlo is approximately 40 kilometres (25 miles). Buses, taxis and car hire are all available from the airport.
Monte Carlo can be explored on foot, although with some attractions to be found at the top of steep slopes, this can make for a strenuous day out. A bus network runs through the city and taxis can be hailed. Alternatively, Monte Carlo car hire is available with pick up points at both the airport and city centre.
Monte Carlo's most famous attraction is of course its casinos, including the eponymous casino that was featured in two of the Bond films, Never Say Never Again (1983) and GoldenEye (1995).

Slip into his shoes as you explore the layouts of the many casinos and if you feel like a flutter, you won't be disappointed!
