Built in 1878 by Charles Garnier, the Monte Carlo Casino is another feather in the cap of the man who designed the Paris Opera House. The Salle Garnier hosts ballet, opera, and concerts, while the Gaming Rooms fill with all the glitz and glamour one would expect from a top-class casino. The rooms sport stained glass windows and sculptures. Jacket and tie are required for men.
