Monte Carlo: Is it a good place for a Girlfriend Getaway???

We are a group of professional women that are looking for an exotic, beautiful, and wonderful experience for a week. And this is an area that we are considering for our 2012 trip... By then we will be in our early to mid thirties. Is this a place that one would recommend? If so, where should we stay that won't break the bank and I think we are looking at a budget of upwards of 550 euros a night or should we get a vacation rental? What is there to do there? Thanks!

It's a perfect place for a girlfriend getaway! My sister's and I (this is HubieDaMan's wife) were there last October on a Cruise...so we only had a day at Monte Carlo and Nice, but we had all commented that it would be a perfect getaway for the girls! You've got the beaches and the Flower Market in Nice, along with the fun little shops.....and then you have Monte Carlo, the Casino(Dress Code) and the beautiful scenery, the Botanical Garden Of Grace Kelly with the Lovely Ocean Backdrop! You've got the Monaco Grand Prix Streets to go down and it's a dreamy kinda place! The shops, the Water, the Hotels everywhere, you're sure to have a wonderful time no matter where you stay everything is accessible for the day! You can Hike around EZE for some exercise......and VillaFrance looked interesting, even though we only got off the ship there and hopped on a bus......I would've liked to tour it for a little while...it was beautiful......look it all up!!! I wish I were going! It's on our list for Girls Getaways!

I think Monaco/Monte-Carlo would be a GREAT girls trip at your age!

The last time I was there I was with one girlfriend and we were around 37 at the time. We had a blast! Another plus to this destination is that the Principality is very safe; their crime rate is very low and you see police everywhere. Most of the public areas are supposedly on camera. We felt very safe. This is a picture-perfect, fairytale locale - complete with a royal palace! Great restaurants/bars, shops, hotels, sightseeing venues, ... and you can easily take a train into Italy for a day trip (we did) or visit the memorable town of Eze Village. Have fun!

Yes, Monte-Carlo would be a fun place. You can take the bus or train along the coast to visit the various towns. Inland, there is St. Paul de Vence and several other interesting towns to visit. And you can take the train to Italy for the markets.
