Best Places to Visit in Monaco

Monaco is a little royal principality on the French Riviera that is both beautiful and sparkling. It is possibly the most glamorous tiny strip of land on the earth, measuring less than two square kilometers.

Monaco is a place of breathtaking natural beauty, with rich vegetation and warm weather typical of the Côte d'Azur. With its deep blue water, beautiful palm trees, and brilliant flowers, the area has a beguiling charm.

The steep, rocky promontory jutting out into the Mediterranean known as "Le Rocher" ("The Rock"), which encompasses historic Monaco, also known as Monaco-Ville, is the most spectacular feature (or the Old Town). Monaco-Ville dates back to the 13th century, when the principality was created, and is full of charming tiny alleyways and outstanding landmarks.

Many visitors flock to Monaco to partake in the allure of the French Riviera's luxury. Monaco, with its sumptuous five-star hotels, designer boutiques, luxury yachts, and expensive restaurants, is considered to have the greatest per capita income in Europe.
