It’s the kind of place where the person sitting next to you at the roulette table might be a millionaire – or about to become one. Get to know Monaco, the flashiest of holiday destinations.
This tiny, wealthy city state sits in a covetable sunspot on the Mediterranean coast. Nice Airport is a pebble’s throw (or a helicopter ride) away to the west, and Italy lies to the east. It’s a place where the marina is always packed tight with luxury yachts, their guests enticed up to the prestigious Casino de Monte Carlo or perched in the grandstands of the Monaco Grand Prix. It’s where even the humblest kerbside cafes sell pale Provencal rosé and the people-watching along the quays will give you serious outfit envy. With just under a third of its population estimated to be millionaires, Monaco – and its famous inner Monte Carlo district – has long been a playground for the fabulously rich and famous.
