onaco’s surroundings are very varied, stretching from the French Riviera to the
Italian “Riviera of Flowers” and into the hinterland of France’s Alpes-Maritimes.
The region offers culture and elegance, quaint traditions and architectural
modernity, local gastronomy and leisure pursuits, arts and crafts, sports and
hiking trails... just to list a few of the many attractions.
Monaco is a land of splendour in the Mediterranean tradition. Its luxurious homes, beautiful
parks and gardens, breathtaking views and sumptuous venues will plunge you into the world of
sophistication and legendary creativity for which this world famous destination is so known.
Its marine environment constitutes an outstanding natural treasure. Monaco’s majestic
Oceanographic Museum, towering above the sea, is a temple dedicated to the oceans.
Inaugurated in 1910 by its founder, Prince Albert I, the museum is famous around the globe for
its collections and its aquariums, including the famous “Shark Lagoon” inaugurated in 2001.
On top of an ideal climate and exemplary economic drive, visitors benefit from a vast array of
very high-level hotels plus a wide range of facilities to foster wellbeing and getting fit for your day
to day life.
With easy access to Nice International Airport, only 30 minutes by car and just seven minutes
by helicopter, Monaco is easily combined with other destinations for incentive group travel. The
variety and the level of the accommodation, venues and dining options combined with the
activity options make it a perfect destination for high level incentive groups.
One of the most surprising things about Monaco is that it is an affordable destination. Aside
from the peak periods such as Monaco Grand Prix in May and Monaco Yacht Show in
September, the price point of the accommodation is extremely good value for money. The
destination is often overlooked by those who wrongly assume that it will be out of their budget.

of accommodation and hospitality.

ultra-modern ambiance, for a huge crowd or small group, the principality of Monaco has a
whole palette of solutions to suit every need.
Each hotel has its own signature. They offer panoramic views of either the Mediterranean, the
port, or the casino, and areas set aside for social events and meetings are embellished with

tailor-made and exclusive touch to your incentive evenings and events.
