Monaco takes 2nd place as Europe’s Best Destination 2024

Monaco’s legendary status as an exceptional destination continues with the Principality ranking as the second best place to travel in Europe in 2024, according to Best Destinations in Europe.

More than one million people from 172 countries voted for their  Best Destinations in Europe, an independent travel website that has been assessing travel trends since 2009.

According to the website, “Monaco makes any experience unique. So unique that no one can claim to have experienced it anywhere else. The Principality of Monaco is undoubtedly like nowhere else”, relaying the Monaco Tourism Board’s current catch-phrase.

Monaco lost out only to Marbella, Spain. In third place is Malta, followed by Geneva, Switzerland, and Batumi, Adjara Region, Georgia rounding out the top five.

Selected for their quality of life, sustainable development, year-round cultural offer, growth in popularity on social networks and their international recognition for campaigns like smart tourism and European Union Green Capital, the 20 most-popular sites will be promoted throughout the year and are authorised to display the coveted title of ‘European Best Destination 2024’.
