Setting sail from Istanbul

This is one of those destinations that really does live up to the hype! Istanbul is the place where East meets West, where Asia Minor reaches out across the Bosphorus and almost touches Europe. In its earlier incarnation as Constantinople, the city was the eastern bastion of the Byzantine Empire, holding out for centuries before finally capitulating to the Ottomans in 1453, and it remains a bristling, bustling cultural melting pot, the skyline dotted with magnificent minarets and domes.

Don't miss

Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, the Basilica Cistern, the Grand Bazaar, the Golden Horn, the Suleiman Mosque, the spice market, the shopping, the museums and galleries and… so much more!

Arriving in Monte Carlo

Renowned for its casino, its Grand Prix and its oligarch-friendly tax policies, Monte Carlo is glamour and hedonism personified, with a price tag to match. Wedged between Italy and France on the Côte d'Azur, this little principality enjoys a lovely setting, the villas and penthouses tumbling down the hillside towards the sweeping blue expanse of the Mediterranean. Most visitors won't feel the need (or be able to afford) to stay more than a day or two, but the Prince's Palace and the Oceanographic Museum are both well worth a visit. Enter the casino at your own risk...

Our tip

If you have the slightest interest in Formula One, you will want to walk the course – 3.34 km through narrow twisted streets and tunnels. Next time you watch the Grand Prix here it will mean so much more to you.

Ways to make it better
Four Seasons Sultanahmet, Istanbul

Our recommended hotel in Istanbul

We love the intimate Four Seasons at Sultanahmet, but – top Mundy tip! - it is so small that it’s often fully booked, so don’t hang about.

Hot air balloons over Cappadocia, Turkey

See more of Turkey

Take a few extra days and travel to Cappadocia for the extraordinary Star Wars scenery, rock caves and churches.

Hotel Monte-Carlo Bay, Monaco

Where to stay in Monte Carlo

We prefer the Monte Carlo Bay to the city hotels, lovely sea views and next to the beach.

Driving a Ferrari in Monte Carlo

See Monte Carlo in style

If you like luxury or performance cars, rent one - a Ferrari or a Lamborghini - and drive along the Corniche.
