Gorgeous and glittering Monaco is the world`s second-smallest country (after the Vatican), but for what it lacks in size it makes up for in extravagance. It is perhaps the most glamorous tiny stretch of land on the planet renowned for the Monaco Grand Prix that takes place each year, an event worth watching. Monte Carlo is the wealthiest of Monaco`s 4 quarters on France`s Mediterranean coastline, exuding an air of extravagance, as seen in the luxe hotels, designer boutiques, luxury yachts, and lavish restaurants. It is home to an elegant belle-époque casino complex and ornate Salle Garnier opera house. The main attractions are the Oceanographic Museum and Aquarium, the Monaco Cathedral and the Prince`s Palace, as well as some magnificent gardens, and other attractions centered on the country`s famous Royal Family, such as an exhibition of HSH Prince of Monaco`s Private Collection of Classic Cars. This tiny principality has charm, attitude and elegance that definitely make it worth a visit.
