the location of the world famous casino, luxury hotels, stores and yachts

Monte Carlo is only 1/2 square mile in size but much of it is hills
Monaco is bordered by France on the North, South, and West with the Mediterranean Sea to its East.
It is very difficult to tell when you cross the border. The official language of Monaco is French

The official capital is the neighborhood known as “Monaco-Ville,” also known as “Le Rocher,” (the Rock)
which is the large promontory where the medieval Old Town, the Oceanographic Museum, and the Prince’s Palace, as well as several government institutions, are located.
The marriage of Prince Ranier to American actress Grace Kelly
was a world wide news story
