History and description

Stade Louis II got built in the early 1980s in place of Monaco’s old Stade Louis II. It officially opened on the 25 January 1985.

Stade Louis II was the host of the annual UEFA Super Cup encounter between 1998 and 2013 until UEFA decided to have the match played at a different venue each year.

The stadium is also regularly used for athletics events, including an annual IAAF Diamond League event.

Stade Louis II is located on the southern border of the little state of Monaco. It is just a 15-minute walk to the stadium from the Royal Palace, and a 30-minute walk from the casino.

Monaco’s train station, Gare de Monaco-Monte Carlo, is a 20-minute walk away. Regular trains connect Monaco with Nice Ville and Nice-Riquier train station. The journey takes only 20 minutes.

Address: Avenue des Castelans 3, 98000 Monaco

Eat, drink, and sleep near Stade Louis II

Stade Louis II is located in a residential area mainly consisting of large apartment blocks. There are few eating and drinking establishments in the area, but the centre is just a 15-minute walk away and offers many more eating and drinking options.

There are three hotels located in the very near vicinity of Stade Louis II: Riviera Marriott Hotel, Le Quai des Princes, and Hotel Columbus, but, it being Monaco, neither comes cheap, and nor do most of the other hotels in Monte Carlo. You may therefore want to explore cheaper options in nearby Nice or Menton.
