Live like the 1% for the cost of a bottle of bubbles (or rose or any one of over 2,300 wines, Champagnes and spirits) at the Wine Palace Monte-Carlo. This hidden gem of Monaco’s glitzy Port Hercule is located in the recently inaugurated, sustainably-built, and members-only Monaco Yacht Club designed by Sir Norman Foster. Enjoy sips on the terrace while watching some of the fanciest and most luxurious yachts in the world glide in and out of this exclusive port. That giant cruise ship over there? Not a cruise ship. That’s somebody’s superyacht!

LGBT-friendly Monaco offers trip-planning information on their site for all travelers; they’ve created a brochure for their LGBT visitors; and joined the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association in 2015.
