A lot of beaches in Cannes are private and all of them meet the highest requirements for infrastructure. But there are also several public places of rest, although they are often crowded.

Hotels in Cannes are varied and can satisfy even the most demanding taste. The best of them are located, as usual, on the coastline.

La Condamine is the financial and port center of Monaco.

Fontvieille is a seaside area that houses the main university of the principality, the Stade Louis II and the heliport.

Moneghetti, Larvotto, Saint-Roman, Saint-Michel and La Collet are all diverse residential areas of the city, some are remarkable for their beaches, some for their calm atmosphere, but each is beautiful and cozy in its own way.
