It is particularly important when you are in Monte Carlo. Girls, I want to warn you that in this place you will find clothes/shoe/accessories collections of any world famous designers. Don`t count on cheap shopping – the city appears in lists “the most expensive place to live in Europe”. BUT! A huge plus is that there is no such function as “20 % tax”.
When you go into shopping trip do not forget to visit so called – Gold Circus – Casino square and adjacent streets. In fact, it is a gallery of boutiques: Dior, Hermes, Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci, and Chanel. Walk along the street Rue, Princesse Caroline that is very close by. Here you can also find such shops as Bulgari, Cartier, Chopard.
Local shops look like museums with exhibits from the world of unbelievable wealth and luxury.
You must visit Galaxie de Metropole – one the biggest department stores in Monte Carlo. Can you even imagine that there are more than 80 boutiques! Oh, there you can find everything you want!
For clothes that are more democratic, you should go to Fontvieille Shopping Centre.
By the way, I was advised a boutique of opulent jewelry. Even the princely family buy here. This is Fred Boutique (avenue des Beaux-Arts). You can find only few such places in the world.
Moreover, remember about souvenirs. The best to buy in is the market Condamine! Gift tobacco products are in the shop Davidoff and cards for poker – in stalls near casino.
I advise you to stop by Boutique du Rocher where pottery, frames, toys and different things for interior are sold. Can you believe that it was opened by princes Greys in 60th. Yes, you are right, that one!
Oh, it looks like I`ve told you about interesting shopping places in Monte Carlo a lot.
I will also tell you about restaurants in this marvelous city.
