Monaco is a synonym for prestige. A little magic world of glamour and dreams. A place where the international elite gather, an harbor for the most beautiful yachts, a prestigious destination, and home to some of the world’s most celebrated events including the Formula One Grand Prix, the Open Tennis Championships, the International Circus Festival and the Monaco Yacht Show to name but a few.
This tiny Principality made of crystal clear sea and blue skies occupies an area slightly smaller than Central Park. Ruled over by the Grimaldi family since 1297 and today by HSH Prince Albert and his government, it is probably the richest, safest and cleanest place on earth.
From the deep blue of the Mediterranean to the dazzling white canyons of the inland countryside, Monaco never stops revealing surprises.
Nestled between Italy and France, along the Mediterranean Sea, on the French Riviera, about twenty kilometers at the Eastern Nice, and surrounded by the French cities of Cap d’Ail, Beausoleil, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin and La Turbie, the Principality of Monaco is offering a direct access to the sea.
A visit to the Principality is always an experience. It has historical heritage, an exceptional micro climate, a well-preserved lifestyle, astonishing architecture, and is the meeting point of Mediterranean and international cultures. At the heart of Europe, Monaco will surprise and delight you.
Monaco is also the city of entertainment. Offering a wide range of activities whether for the body or the mind, the Principality is bubbling with thrills day and night.
Immerse yourself in the beauty and sophistication of this world-class destination.
