Etiquette

  • Attire Dress modestly in churches, with shoulders and torso covered. Formal attire is expected in certain social settings, including evening visits to the Casino de Monte Carlo.
  • Conversation Use the formal vous when speaking French to anyone unknown or older than you. The informal tu is reserved for close friends, family and children.
  • Greetings Men will typically shake hands when greeting each other. A man and a woman, or two women, may exchange bisous (cheek-skimming kisses).
