ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)

Monaco is the world's second smallest country in size, but not in its appeal to visitors, with an array of opportunities for relaxation or exploring this tiny principality.

Monaco is well known for the Grand Casino, one of the most visited and celebrated attractions in the country, with its unique architecture, opulent furnishings and "dressed to the nines" high rollers.

Not to be missed while in Monaco are the Prince's Palace State Apartments, the Opera House, the beautiful botanical Jardin Exotique, the Oceanographic Museum, the Monaco Cathedral, the busy harbor area, the Prince's Car Collection, shopping and of course, dining.

For auto racing enthusiasts, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Monte Carlo rally are two of the best known motor sports events in Europe, drawing major crowds.

Where else but Monaco can one walk the entire country from end to end? (It's only .76 square miles/1.22 km). For skiers, the Alps are only an hour's drive away.
