Monaco is one of the most glitzy places in the world and it?s amazing that it?s just two square kilometers in size, making it the second smallest country in the world. However, packed within its small size is an abundance of interesting attractions, replete with luxurious extravagances, natural beauty and rich historic landmarks. Ruled by the Grimaldi family since the 13th century, Monaco is a place of fairytale romance, glitz and much more, making holidays in Monaco a genuine indulgence of all things glamourous! Monte Carlo should be your first stop when at Monaco. As a place where lavishness rules, Monte Carlo is the famous district of Monaco that abounds with natural beauty and man-made splendours that are sure to take your breath away. Located on a promontory with picturesque views of the Port of Monaco, Monte Carlo is the home of stunning seaside views, plush Michelin-starred restaurants, luxury boutiques, Opera Houses, and haute couture shopping destinations. Another iconic attraction here is Palais du Prince. Established by the Genoese family of Grimaldi back in 1297, Palais du Prince is home to the oldest monarchy in the world. While it was originally built in the 13th century with a very strong fortress, the palace has been transformed over generations to be the stunning spectacle it is today. Located high above sea level on the peninsula of Le Rocher, the views surrounding this palace is truly spellbinding. The interiors of the palace are equally stunning too where visitors can see an Italianate gallery with frescoes dating as far back as the 15th century, the Blue Room that is covered in gold and blue, the wood panelled Mazarin Room and the Throne Room.
