Our verdict

The best time to visit Monaco is May-June

Whilst Monaco is a popular destination to visit all-year-round, May-June is the ideal time to go as it’s just before the beginning of the European summer holidays so there are less visitors and hotels are usually a bit cheaper, but the weather and ocean temperatures are still perfect for relaxing by the water. Nested on the south-coast of France overlooking the beautiful Medeterranean, this millionaire’s playground is home to the famous Monte Carlo Casino, Formula 1 street circuit, and some of the most incredible French cuisine imaginable.

In the summer months, temperatures can reach as high as 26℃ (80℉) in Monaco. The coldest it usually gets in winter-time in Monaco is around 1℃ (33℉).

The longest days between sunrise and sunset in Monaco are usually in July, so if you want to get the most out of your daytime activities, be sure to plan your visit around this time.
