This tiny country has enough glamour, luxury, and fashion to surpass all of its much larger neighbours. July is the best time to visit Monaco and take advantage of its upscale parties and festivals. Visit classical music concerts at the Prince's Palace, prestigious Monte-Carlo International Jumping equestrian competition, and Fête de la Mer. If you are into car racing, come in January for Monte-Carlo Rally or in late May for F1 Monaco Grand Prix. In September you can enjoy less crowded beaches and the Monaco Yacht Show.
