Belle Epoque in all its opulence and beauty.
Monte Carlo Casino is one of the oldest as its inauguration dates back to February 18th 1863. It is also one of the most representative examples of Belle Epoque architecture, which was first seen during the reign of Emperor Napoleon Ill The first stone was laid by Prince Albert 1st in the presence of Prince Charles Ill on May 13th 1858 It was Prince Charles Ill's idea. He entrusted the development to a 57 year-old businessman and passionate art lover, Francois Blanc, who had made his fortune in Homburg (Germany). Blanc, then his wife, Marie Blanc, and then his son, Camille, called upon the best architects and artists of the late 19th century including Charles Garnier, who had just completed the Paris Opera House. On April 2nd 1863, Francois Blanc bought back the gaming for 50 years As soon as work began, he extended the Casino, added a ballroom and in January 1864, he opened the Hotel de Paris. The name "Monte-Carlo the Ligurian translation of "Mount Charles'' in honour of the Sovereign, Prince Charles Ill, first appeared in 1866 Two years later, the railway reached Monaco, finally bringing a large number of visitors and gamblers. The inauguration of the Opera House took place on January 25th 1879; the prestigious décor took shape and the celebrations began. From 1909, there was an unending stream of top-class personalities, from Diaghilev to King Edward VII, from Caruso to la Belle Otero and of course the unforgettable Chaliapin. Today, after lengthy and delicate restoration work, Monte Carlo Casino has regained all its splendour of the olden days. To enter the Monte Carlo Casino is not only to try one's luck at gambling but it is to enter the Legend of a unique venue.

"My husband and I enjoyed very much a private tour at the Wallace Collection, guided by Hanna. Besides it being a truly educative experience, we really had fun! Hanna has a deep passion to the world of art and a keen eye on detail, and it was a great pleasure to share that special energy and learn with her.
I also had a fantastic time at the Masterpiece Fair with Hanna and our Private Art Education group. The tour was both educative and entertaining! In addition, it was wonderful to meet likeminded people, who enjoy enriching their lives with a touch of art."
