Located between Italy and France on the Cote D'Azur, the principality of Monaco is renowned for its high society, Grand Prix and scandal and the cost of a square metre of land is the most expensive in the world. After the Vatican, it is the smallest yet most unique sovereign state in the world. Monte Carlo's Casino is undoubtedly the principality's most famous landmark. Designed by the architect of the Paris Opera House, Charles Garnier, this superb casino was built in 1878. With the opening of the casino, this previously relatively poor mini State, developed into the famous principality it is today. Monaco is certainly a place of wealth and prosperity. But the sunshine and its wonderful location on the Cote D'Azur makes it a fascinating place to visit.
