Monte Carlo, Monaco

The principality of Monaco and city of Monte Carlo lie on the southern Mediterranean Sea coast of France, near the border with Italy, in Southern Europe. It is the second smallest independent state in the world. With no natural resources of its own, Monte Carlo is a haven for tourists and the wealthy jet-set.

Monte Carlo features a beautiful Riviera setting, yacht-filled harbor and elegant casino. Wander through the covered passageways of the old quarter, have a drink in the grand Hotel de Paris, or shop in chic boutiques favored by the princesses Caroline and Stephanie.

There are regular Rapide Cote D’Azur buses connecting Monte Carlo with both the terminals at Nice Cote D’Azur airport, and taxis are always available outside the terminal buildings.

The Monaco-Monte Carlo station has good service to most of neighbouring France and Italy. There are 2-4 services per hour to Nice, Cannes, Menton and Ventimiglia (Italy). Most international trains will stop, such as the 'Ligure' which links Marseille and Milan, the 'train bleu' which operates between Paris and Ventimiglia, and the famous high-speed TGV which runs between Nice and Paris.
