Life in lockdown: a virtual tour of Monaco

By Cassandra Tanti - March 20, 2020

From the Monaco Grand Prix boutique to Karl Lagerfeld’s mansion, it’s time to enjoy an afternoon out in Monaco without leaving your couch.

Just because we can’t physically visit our favourite places in Monaco, doesn’t mean we have to miss out altogether.

Virtual tours have become the new Netflix, and while nothing can replicate the feeling of walking into the lobby of the Hôtel de Paris, or catching up with friends in your favourite private club, digital walk throughs are a great way to reminisce, to discover, or rediscover the Principality…

Oliver Hawkins

“Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent.” While the very talented Jim Jarmusch may not be talking about art prints, this well observed statement rather beautifully captures a point often overlooked by art collectors.
