Monaco Tourist Guide
- The principality of Monaco is one of the world’s most famous city-states, and the smallest sovereign state after the Vatican. It is renowned as a den of luxury and extravagance, and it is indeed true that Monaco’s citizens enjoy the highest income per capita in the world. The opulence of this tiny municipality practically oozes from the pavements, something that increases every May when the world’s rich and famous descend on the city for the Monaco Grand Prix. This has long been the highlight of the state’s year since the race began in 1929. The original part of town (Monaco-Ville) is set upon the dramatic sheer cliff-face, the Rock, which plunges straight into the sea, adding to the city’s impressive impact; as do the huge skyscrapers that have sprung up in recent years due to lack of building space.
Although officially a state in its own right, Monaco is something of an anomaly. It is part of France, yet separate from it. It has its own tax laws, (i.e. there are none!), and its own dialect, Monégasque, but the official language is French, the Euro is the unit of currency, and most of France’s laws apply here. With all this in play, it seems that Monaco is a bit unsure of its position as a state within a state. Not that any of this bothers its wealthy inhabitants, or the rich and famous visitors who come to soak up the extravagant atmosphere.
The most famous area of Monaco has to be Monte Carlo with its dramatic heights, world-renowned casino, opulent Opera House and the beautiful art-deco exteriors which dot the shoreline. Along with this area there is also the beautiful La Condamine, the waterside quays, which separate Monaco-Ville and Monte Carlo, which is a beautiful place to go for a stroll and take in the multi-million dollar yachts moored in the marina. Other highlights of this spectacular city-state are the Royal Palace, Palais Princier, the serene Princess Grace Rose Garden, and the Jardin Exotique and nearby Grotte de l’Observatoire (Observatory Cave). Along with these fabulous sites there are also many fascinating museums, such as the Musée Océanographique and the Musée National des Poupées et Automates (dolls and robots).
The fabulous boutiques which line Monaco’s streets sell a huge number of exquisite items, which are the ultimate in luxury purchases. The food in Monaco is also second-to-none, with local specialities including many seafood dishes such as bouillabaisse. There are so many places to choose from, especially in the quaint Old Town, but one eatery that you must experience is the famous Le Café de Paris, which was renovated by Edward VII. Along with the fabulous cuisine, there are also a huge amount of bars and clubs to keep you entertained until all hours; meaning that in Monaco you can guarantee you will never be bored!
