8 Hotels in Montecarlo, Monaco
Monte Carlo, the major city of the Principality of Monaco, is known to be the international capital of jet set. Overlooking the sea on the French Riviera, Monte Carlo is famous for its casino, which lies among its well-kept gardens and whose card rooms are visited by aristocrats, speculators, industrialists, sheikhs and anonymous visitors trying their luck.
The history of this unique city goes hand in hand with the formation of the Principality of Monaco, whose origin dates back to medieval times. Starting from the second half of the nineteenth century Monte Carlo took its present name to honor King Charles III. Over the last decades this resort has seen an increasing presence of show business people and sports men, who decide to live there.
Monte Carlo's harbour is the most exclusive port in Còte d'Azur. Among sporting and social events, the Rally, the Grand Prix Formula One race and the Open tennis tournament deserve a visit. The modern Congress Centre in Monte Carlo has also sophisticated equipment and hosts conferences, festivals, concerts and shows. Who loves car racing will experience the thrill of walking the same streets as those used by drivers to challenge one another. Monte Carlo is the only race of the championship to take place in an inhabited area.
Monte Carlo fits perfectly to a hypothetical tour that involves the whole French Riviera, along the highway parallel to the coastline.
