In a principality like Monaco, taste is everything. It’s also something that Maguy Maccario-Doyle has in spades. She wears many hats: not only is Maccario-Doyle consul general of Monaco and director of the Monaco Government Tourist Office, she is also vice president of The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation-USA. Ahead of the annual “Monaco Takes New York” week (October 11-17), Maccario-Doyle shares with Luxury Travel Advisor some of her most prized possessions and loves.
