Monaco Coastline

Spring has sprung so let’s have fun!

Monaco is an old city on a rocky cape extending into the Mediterranean, known as the Rock of Monaco, or simply Le Rocher (the Rock). It is also where the Prince’s Palace, the ramparts, the gardens, The Cathedral and the Oceanographic Museum are located. The principality of Monaco is divided into three districts: Monte Carlo, La Condamine and Fontvieille.  

Monaco is also known as a Billionaires’ Playground”. It is famous for lavish wealth, casinos, and glamorous events such as the Monaco Yacht Show and the Monaco Grand Prix. The place is dubbed as the “epitome of glamour and seemingly endless wealth” and some of the wealthiest people in the world have made Monte Carlo their home.
