Monaco and its surroundings

Monaco and its surroundings

A unique area in the Côte d'Azur, the historic city of Monaco is intimately linked to the history of the Grimaldi, who still reign over it. A visit to the Principality, and particularly its “rocks”, is a must. At the same time a modern city, a symbol of economic, touristic and real estate hyper activity, and a glamorous and traditional postcard, the Principality is synonymous with luxury, exceptional festivals, gambling, the jet set, top brands...With its hilly environment (Mont-Agel, La Turbie), its vertiginous lanes leading to the beaches of the Mediterranean (Eze, Beausoleil), the "French Riviera touch" is more real than ever.
