A rock to the extreme east of Provence makes the world dream. This seductive land, a holiday resort and the official residence of its royal family, is also a rising economic power.
Monte Carlo is located on an exceptional site between the Mediterranean and the Southern Alps where it can build on its reputation as the “place to be” for the rich and famous. The city and its principality occupy a prime location on the Côte d’Azur which glitters day and night.
With its cultural and sports festivities, excellent security and a quality of life which goes hand in hand with a favourable tax system, Monaco is decidedly in vogue.
The small principality can be visited in a single morning, but there are lots of attractions to explore if you wish to stay longer, such as the Prince’s Palace dating back to the 13th century, the Oceanographic Museum with Europe’s largest aquarium, the Exotic Garden and its spectacular view of the city, the harbour filled with yachts, each one bigger than the next, and the Casino where fortunes have been made and lost…The principality takes pride in its cultural life with the Philharmonic Orchestra and the Monte Carlo ballets as its pillars. Life in Monaco goes on under the watchful eye of a prince charming responsible for stopping the carriage turning into a pumpkin in this exceptional corner of the planet.
