The Rock of Monaco welcomes you with an oceanographic museum and splendid gardens.
Although Monaco is often mentioned for its princely family and rich football players, the town also offers many other reasons to spend a day ‘on the Rock’. The oceanographic museum, formerly managed by Captain Cousteau, holds an aquarium with 350 odd fish species and a shark lagoon. Not far from it, the exotic garden shows a surprising collection of cactuses and other plants from the desert. Its alleyways offer extraordinary panoramas on the Côte d'Azur. The Japanese garden will invite you to a stroll in a green and quiet setting.
