For the small Principality that it is, Monaco has an astounding number of radio stations, with approximately 100 competing for your attention. Choosing which station should be the soundtrack for your luxury Monaco real estate is a veritable challenge.
First, pick your language from French, Monegasque, Italian, English, German, Russian, and more; the varied selection is truly representative of the cosmopolitan hub that the Principality is. Secondly, choose your style. Are you the intellectual radio listener with a penchant for stimulating talk? Do you like to follow inspirational and motivational programmes? Or is it music you’re tuning into? Finally, pick your genre: jazz, pop, rock, or classical?
We’ve tuned into the radio stations that are heating up the airwaves. Here are some of our favourites:
Francophone Radio Monaco is the national all-purpose radio station with a wide array of programmes, ranging from world economy and politics to European sports, and Riviera nightlife.

Los Angeles-based reporter Benoit Claire gives a round-up of what’s happening on the other side of the Pond. Radio Monaco is a must-tune-in, especially around election time.
