Following several months of construction work, Place du Casino is finally unveiling its new look. A modern, open space, which has been completely redesigned to ensure visitors’ enjoyment and comfort. The esplanade offers a clear view of the sumptuous Belle Époque buildings of the Casino de Monte-Carlo, Hotel de Paris and Café de Paris. The square has rediscovered the style it had when it was created in 1850. Anish Kapoor’s mirror, a vital embellishment of the old square, retains its place at the centre of the esplanade. The sculpture is surrounded by palm trees and a circular fountain designed to form a true little oasis.
