Like most hotels, Fairmont Monte Carlo will make you feel special on your natal day. Be sure to let them know that it’s your birthday, and they’ll leave a celebratory cake for you in your room. That’s exactly what they did for me. They left me a delicious cake. I went during the summer. It was my first time in Monaco. I quickly realized that the place was packed with tourists and everything was more expensive. So I decided that next time, I would try to go during winter. I suggest you do the same. If you don’t mind delaying your birthday celebration, try and go during the cold season. There will be fewer tourists to navigate through and rates will be a lot less. The only downside is that you will have to deal with the cold weather so be sure to bring enough warm clothes!
