Honeymoon
In The
Mediterranean

F

or the bride and
groom embarking on
a honeymoon, there
is probably no more
romantic destination than
the Mediterranean. With a
sultry summertime
climate, azure waters,
limitless sightseeing
opportunities, and fabulous
hotels, this corner of the
world is the playground of
all of Europe. For American
newlyweds, it is far away,
foreign, and even exotic.
We explored the French
Riviera, Italy, Yugoslavia,
Greece and Israel. Unless
otherwise noted, the hotels
we describe are luxury
hotels. Naturally, there are
many accommodations that
are quite suitable for
honeymooners and far less
expensive. Consult your

THE FRENCH RIVIERA
Monaco. Fabled
international playground of
European royalty and the
likes of Mata Hari, Sarah
Benrhardt, King Farouk
and Aly Khan, the minute
sovereign state of Monaco
occupies Ph square
kilometers and has a
population of nearly 25,000.
The Casino de Monte Carlo
is the most famous in the
world, and it, along with the
Opera, orchestra (one of the
first in Europe), music
festival, Monte Carlo Rally
and Grand Prix,
world-famous Musee
Oceanographique and
Aquarium directed by
Jacques Cousteau — not to
forget the beautiful postage
stamps, are all part of the
local experience. Monaco
was acquired in the 10th or
11th Century by the
Grimaldis, now the oldest
reigning house in Europe.
In Monte Carlo, Monaco's
glittering capital, there are
several excellent hotels.
The Loews Monte Carlo is
the newest and largest
resort complex on the
Riviera. It seems to rise
straight from the sea with
the Boulevard Louis II,
course of Le Grand Prix,
running directly beneath it.
Common rooms, such as the
immense lobby, are
well-appointed, and guest
rooms come with a
refrigerator and
fully-stocked bar. There are
several restaurants,
including the chic Yellow
Bikini adjacent to the
rooftop swimming pool,. a
super chib featuring
international entertainers,
and an American-style
gaming room where craps,
roulette, and slot whirr
along all night long.
For that truly French
experience, try the Hotel de
Paris with its glamorous
European casino. The Hotel
de Paris is well over a
century old and boasts a
guest list as illustrious as
that of any royal palace.
With an interior that
features cherubs climbing
up every pillar and
chandeliers dripping from
each ceiling, the Hotel de
Paris fairly screams
romance — the sort of place
that goes well with red
roses, Dom Perignon and a
