Welcome to Monaco
Monaco is a small principality that exudes luxury and exclusivity, commonly known as the playground of the rich and famous. Monaco's history is intertwined with famous names, glamorous living and, sometimes, the scandal that comes when royals mingle with politicians, artists, icons of the fashion world, sports and movie stars.
A melting pot of cultures and nationalities taking up an area just over 2km squared, Monaco is nestled between the French and Italian Rivieras. The most densely populated country in the world, it offers up an array of luxury hotels, international sporting events, multi-million euro yachts and, of course, the chance to visit the legendary Monte-Carlo Casino.
There are three main areas within Monaco: La Condamine, Monte-Carlo and Monaco Ville. La Condamine includes Port Hercule and the business district. Monte-Carlo is a bustling hive of activity, shopping and fast cars. Finally, Monaco Ville refers to the old town of Monaco which sits on a peninsula high above the Mediterranean.
