The Monaco Grand Prix just wrapped, meaning all eyes are on Monte Carlo. (Its annual Formula One race is one of the most prestigious in the world.) And the tiny nation will continue to hold the world’s gaze as Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock prepare for their nuptials-- aka Royal Wedding No. 2-- in early July.
Looking to get a piece of the action on the Cote d'Azur this year? The glamorous Casino de Monte-Carlo has opened two outdoor gaming terraces so you can get your game on while staring out to sea under starlit skies. On the Salle Médecin terrace, clients can play Black Jack or Punto Banco, while the terrace of the Salle Blanche offers both these games plus European roulette. These new terraces represent the first phase of a renovation project for the casino that’s been legendary since it opened in 1863, its grand interiors showcased in the movie Ocean’s Twelve.
