Nestled between Italy and France, on the CĂ´te d’Azur, the Principality of Monaco offers guests more than 300 days of sunshine each year. Although the fabulous climate is a primary attraction, people are also drawn to the region’s warm engaging colors, the variety of its surroundings and the friendliness of the people.
Monaco is also a synonym for prestige. A little magic world of glamour and dreams. A place where the international elite gather, a harbor for the most beautiful yachts, a prestigious destination, and home to some of the worldâ€™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 and has a population of 32 000 inhabitants. 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.
