Weather at the moment
Weather all year round
Monaco enjoys a temperate and Mediterranean climate. With a sunshine rate of around 300 days per year, the Principality is therefore a very popular tourist destination and can be visited all year round! Winters are mild and humid with a temperature fluctuating around 10°C. However, beware of the easterly wind, which heralds a clear deterioration in the weather! Summers are hot, but not hot, with temperatures regularly approaching 28°C.
The Principality of Monaco is authorised to use the euro. There are of course the beautiful hotel rooms of the great palaces and the gourmet restaurants... But it is also possible to have lunch or dinner in charming little restaurants for less than 20 € per person! You will also be surprised to find that public car parks are cheaper than in France. In the restaurant, the service is included in the bill.
Entry and exit to and from Monegasque territory is via French territory, Monaco being a landlocked country. Although the Principality is an independent and sovereign State, the border crossing is carried out without formality. For French nationals, a valid identity card or passport will be required in case of an inspection. Be careful, if you decide to travel with your pet, do not forget its passport because for several years, dog, cat or ferret travelling in the European Union with its owner or for commercial purposes must be identified, vaccinated against rabies and be in possession of a European passport provided and completed by a veterinarian or the Departmental Directorate of Veterinary Services. The model of this passport is the same for all Member States: it indicates the identification, description of the animal, all the required health information and indicates the name and address of the owner.
No particular vaccine is required, but make sure you are up to date with your so-called "classic" vaccines: tuberculosis, pertussis, diphtheria, tetanus, poliomyelitis, etc. Vaccination against hepatitis A is recommended in the absence of prior immunity. In case of doubt, do not hesitate to consult your doctor who can prescribe a blood test to check for traces of a past infection. If the test is positive, you will avoid unnecessary vaccination, but if it is negative, the vaccine is essential! Vaccination against hepatitis B can be discussed. Tap water is of course drinkable
