The Casino de Monte-Carlo is such an integral part of Monacan life and heritage that it would be impossible to imagine the Principality of Monaco without it!
The man behind this world-renowned gaming centre, without which the layout and particularity of this country would simply not be the same, is François Blanc, founder of the Société des Bains de Mer.
His international vision took shape in the middle of the 19th century, in under three years. The Belle Epoque styled Casino de Monte-Carlo, the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, Café de Paris and, in 2014, the Monte-Carlo Pavillions have helped perfect this desire to offer a lively location for gaming in the heart of an authentic resort.
Images of the Casino de Monte-Carlo, one of the oldest casinos in existence, have toured the world through the press, cinema, literature, internet and the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
It would be an almost impossible task to list all the people that have contributed to making the Casino de Monte-Carlo and its famous roundabout a historical landmark for tourism and entertainment.
At its now notorious central island, you are just a few steps away from the entrance to the Casino de Monte-Carlo and a sophisticated break. Here you can move from room to room, weaving your way between the players and trying your luck, enjoy a meal at Le Train Bleu or the Le Salon Rose Brasserie, sip a glass of champagne at the Bar Salle Blanche and, if the weather is good, take in the view from the terrace of the Salle Blanche or the veranda of the Salons Super Privés.
Unforgettable memories await...
