How To Get There

One side of Monaco borders the Mediterranean Sea, and the other three are bordered by France. Less than 40,000 people live in Monaco, but it’s a major tourist destination as it hosts several major sporting and gambling events every year. The easiest way to get there is to fly in to Nice Airport and then travel by taxi (45 minutes) or helicopter (7 minutes) along the coast to Monaco.

Guide to the glitz & glamour of Monte Carlo

Monte Carlo is a luxurious area of Monaco on the French Riviera that’s particularly known for its casinos near the beach – perfect for a holiday. Monaco is a principality which means that, although it is within France, it is its own sovereign state with its own royal family.
