Shopping Centers in Monaco

If you’re bound for Monaco in search of bargains, I’m going to have to disappoint you. True, there are a few ‘affordable’ shops in the Condamine/Port district. But key Monaco shops (mostly in Monte-Carlo’s Cercle d’Or district around Place du Casino) clothe, bejewel and otherwise complement the costliest bodies on the planet. Iconic Riviera will give you a preview of some shopping centers in Monaco.

ONE MONTE-CARLO’S DESIGNER SHOPS

The One Monte-Carlo shopping promenade is made up of five futuristic, rounded buildings filled with haute-couture designer shops (think Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton and the like). Even more big-ticket boutiques can be found on Avenue de Monte-Carlo .

Meanwhile, slightly more modest budgets might move across the Casino Square gardens to the Métropole Shopping Center . Take the escalators, just to the left of the entrance to Hotel Metropole , then head down into this glam shopping center, which houses a few cafes and 80 shops on 4 floors.

Budget Monaco shopping Centers

Across the other side of the principality, by the Fontvieille district, the Fontvieille Commercial Centre is much less glam but much more affordable. It houses a giant Carrefour supermarket and other shops which people actually need. It’s also home to several affordable fast-food eateries, some with outdoor seating (but none of which we’d recommend).

But the most picturesque shopping is at the daily morning Condamine Market (in Place d’Armes ). It’s a proper Provencal farmer’s market, and center of Monégasque life. If you don’t actually want to buy any fruit and veg, take a seat at one of the cafés in the square and watch normal Mediterranean life pass by…
