Monaco

Last updated: 24 December 2017
Monaco is situated on the Mediterranean coast of France. At two hundred hectares the only country in the world that is smaller than Monaco is the Vatican City. The country is located on a peninsula that juts out into the sea. It is a tax haven that attracts the rich and famous to its shores so its harbour is crammed with luxurious yachts and expensive motorboats.

Gamble at the casinos or just ogle at the rich décor of the surroundings. Casinos were first built here in the 1850’s, and soon became so successful that taxes were no longer required from the citizens. Visit the royal palace or one of the best oceanography museums in the world. Enjoy the glittering nightlife and great cuisine or just take a walk on the pretty sandy beaches.
