    Monaco

    Major Tourist Attractions: French Riviera, Monte Carlo Casino, Monaco Grand Prix, Prince's Palace of Monaco, Oceanographic Museum

    Once home to American actress Grace Kelly, and is a hot spot for the rich and famous, the Principality of Monaco is the second smallest country in the world

    Located on the French Riviera, the Principality of Monaco is the second smallest and most densely populated country in the world. It’s surrounded by France and is recognized as one of the world’s hot spots for the rich and famous.

    Monaco is governed under a constitutional monarchy, with Prince Albert II as the current head of state. It’s known as a tax haven with no income tax and low business taxes, hence the attraction for the many of the world’s most wealthy.

    One of the most popular areas is Monaco-Ville, also called “Le Rocher.” It’s Monaco’s medieval village where you will also find popular tourist attractions like the Prince’s Palace, Monaco Cathedral, the Oceanographic Museum, and Saint Martin Gardens.

    Most travelers are familiar with the famed Monte Carlo Casino, a must-see sight on a trip to Monaco. Be advised, there is an extremely strict dress code, entrance fee, and you better have your passport on you if you plan to enter. Local citizens are prohibited from gambling at the casino.

    The Formula 1 Grand Prix is one of the most notable events in Monaco. If you’re visiting Monaco around the time of the race, you can wander under the grandstands and get the Grand Prix vibe. If you want to attend one of the races, you best buy tickets early and plan to spend minimum of a few hundred euros to get decent seats.

    French is the main language in Monaco, however English and Italian are also widely spoken. Monaco is not an official member of European Union, but participates in certain aspects such as border controls and the implementation of the Euro. Renting a car is the easiest, and best, way to get to Monaco. The area is serviced by SNCF, the French Rail System, or you can really splurge and charter a helicopter to Nice’s airport. Once in Monaco, it’s best to walk or use the bus system. Parking can be a bear in the city.

    In Monaco, you can:

    • Tour the Monaco Cathedral
    • Get dressed up and try your luck at the Monte-Carlo Casino
    • Get educated at the Oceanographic Museum and Aquarium
    • Relax in the Jardin Exotique (Exotic Gardens)
    • Splurge and take in an opera at the Monaco Opera House
    • Walk the route of the Formula 1 Grand Prix
    • Shop at one of Monaco’s high-end luxury boutiques
    • People watch at one of the many sidewalk cafes and patio restaurants
    • Watch a changing of the guard ceremony at Palais Princier (Prince’s Palace)
    • Experience traditional Monaco at markets like La Condamine
