Monaco Travel Information


Monaco Flag The Principality of Monaco (French: Principauté de Monaco; Monégasque: Principatu de Múnegu; Italian: Principato di Monaco; Occitan: Principat de Mónegue) is a small country in southwestern Europe. It surrounded on three sides by France, but has a coast on the Mediterranean Sea.

As of 2009, the population of Monaco was estimated as being 32,965. The country is a city state, and the capital is hence coterminus with the entire country. The two most well-known areas within the country are Monaco-Ville, the original fortified town, and Monte Carlo (French: Monte-Carlo; Monégasque: Monte-Carlu; Occitan: Montcarles) which is the most heavily populated administrative area ("quartier") of the city state.

Marco Polo FrenchRiviera: the Travel Guide with Insider Tips


The French Riviera is the ultimate product of the modern leisure society, a playground of the jet-setting elite, where the luxury world of the coast, with its palaces, chic harbor fronts set against azure sea contrasts with the tranquil, dramatic landscapes and remote mountain villages found away from the shore.


Marco Polo French Riviera takes you along the coast, and through three of France's most beautiful departments: Alpes-Maritimes, Var and Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. The 'Perfect Route' takes you to the most idyllic stretches of coast as well as the most beautiful villages and the best natural scenery inland.


The Best Of pages highlight some unique and free things to do, and have tips for rainy days and where you can relax and unwind. Discover What's Hot on the coast, whether glamping (camping in style) or tea mania, which has really established itself in this country of coffee drinkers.


The Insider Tips reveal where flower petals are crystallized and turned into sweets, and where in Nice you can immerse yourself in the art of Yves Klein.


The Trips & Tours take you to the 'land of perfume' around Grasse and mountain villages in breathtaking locations. The Dos & Don'ts explain why your swimming trunks might cause you problems in St Tropez and why you should keep your hands off those beautifully hand-painted olive oil bottles.


Marco Polo French Riviera provides comprehensive coverage of the region, including Monaco. To help you get around there's a detailed road atlas inside, city maps of Cannes and Nice in the back cover, plus a handy pull-out map. A must-have for all travellers, including those who haven't bought a travel guide in the past.


Discover the best hotels, authentic restaurants, the region's trendiest places and night spots; get tips on shopping and what to do on a limited budget; plus plenty of ideas for travel with kids. Also contains: the Perfect Route, Travel Tips, Links, Blogs, Apps & more, French phrasebook and index.

  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
This unique book examines the history, culture, and inner workings of the seven smallest independent countries in Europe. These are among the oldest states on the continent and, despite their diversity, they have much in common. Most have relatively high per capita incomes and life expectancies, and relatively low unemployment. This narrative presents the unique issues that confront small countries, including maintaining their independence, economic viability, preserving their native languages, and sustaining their governments. The second part of the book describes each microstate in turn, showing how each one has met these challenges and adapted over time. These concise and engaging chapters contain cultural information on subjects including the arts, gastronomy, and popular tourist sites.
