Monte Carlo Transport Guide

All the regular transport options are available in Monte Carlo like buses, taxis and hire cars, but they also have something very different. Elevators. People actually take elevators around town. Monte Carlo has a system of free public elevators that takes people from downtown Monte Carlo to nearby districts if you can’t be bothered walking.

How to get around Monte Carlo

Because Monte Carlo (and Monaco) is pretty tiny, it’s really easy to simply walk around the city. If the winding streets ever tire you though, you can always jump on public elevator, which operate 24 hours a day. Head to the Central Tourist Centre to pick up a map to locate the 7 elevators. Monte Carlo also has a very efficient bus service that operates 5 different routes that’ll take you to Monaco-Ville, Saint Roman, Casino, Jardin Exotique, Larvotto, Gare, Fontvieille and Hôpital. You can buy your ticket on the bus from the driver. The best ticket to get is the daily tourist pass with no ride limits. If you’d prefer to go your own way, you can always hire a car. There are around 25 official carparks around the city, which are surprisingly affordable.
