Rich Man's Paradise City
As part of the French Riviera, Monaco offers the sparkling aquamarine waters of the Mediterranean Sea on its doorstep. The country has long been known for its panache--fast cars, big casinos, and expensive boutiques surround you here.

Many cruise ships make this a port of call in this region, so expect to see these vessels and large yachts as part of the landscape here.
