MONTE CARLO The tiny European country has a reputation as being a seaside getaway, but the mild temps (50 deg. even in the coldest months) and its proximity to the Alps make it a perfect winter destination—especially since that's when it's cheapest to go. The city features an Olympic-size skating rink overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and an Int'l Circus Festival (in Jan.). With the Prince's Palace, it's infamous Casino, and the Monte-Carlo Ballet, it's the perfect place to escape to.
