Visit Monaco

Monaco is the opulent playground for Europe's exceptionally wealthy. Tiny and populated by people who aren't from the principality, Monaco's main attractions are the glamorous lifestyle on offer and tax free income available.

Monte Carlo is the best-known area. Huge motor yachts moor in the harbour whilst their playboy owners play roulette in the lavish Grand Casino and their wives shop in fashionable boutiques. It is also the setting for the annual Formula 1 grand prix

The Old Town of Monaco-Ville overlooks the harbour. Climb the cobbled streets to discover the Prince's Palace and State Apartments, built in 1215. There is also a spectacular aquarium here, with seawater tanks full of coral.

Beyond Monaco-Ville is the Jardin Exotique, which houses 7000 types of cacti and succulent. Further on is Fonteinville, where you'll find the Princess Grace Rose Garden. Named after actress Grace Kelly, who married Prince Rainier III in 1956, it contains over 150 varieties of rose. The prince's 100-strong car collection is on permanent display nearby.
