digital terminals to help visitors find their way around
There are two, and they contain everything you need to know to get around Monaco.
The Principality has just unveiled new 3D terminals as part of the Extended Monaco program, which aims to propel Monaco into the digital age. Tourists should be delighted with these markers for orientation.
For the past few days, visitors have been able to use two large touch screens, located at strategic points, near the station’s tourist information point and inside the Tourist Office.
A virtual replica of the country, to get your bearings
Thanks to these terminals, tourists and visitors can discover a virtual version of the Principality, enriched with a wealth of information. The terminals list the activities offered in Monaco and also indicate the way to get from A to B. But the most appreciated will certainly be the presentation of Points of Interest (POI), organized by theme (monuments, beach, shops, museums, etc.), and suggestions for visits according to individual preferences. Those in a hurry can choose the “A day in Monaco” circuit, motorsport enthusiasts the “Formula 1 track” and culture buffs will prefer “Monuments and emblematic views”, for example.

Visitors will be able to download the circuits on their smartphone thanks to a QR code, so as not to get lost once away from the terminals.
Georges Gambarini, head of the Smart City program at the Department of Digital Services, considers that these terminals “are designed to immerse tourists in a virtual representation of the city […]. The idea is to help them choose what they want to do, and allow them to find their bearings and visualize their itinerary on foot.
