Tourist Travel Information about Monaco
Monaco is the second-smallest country in the world, located on the French Riviera in Western Europe. Monaco is bordered by France on three sides and the Mediterranean Sea on the fourth border, and is only 15 kilometers away from Italy.

Some of the best places to visit in Monaco include the sunny Larvotto Beach, Prince’s Palace royal residence, the charming town of Le Rocher, and, of course, Monte Carlo casino.
It is also very easy to travel from Monaco to neighboring countries such as France and Italy. The closest cities include Nice, Cannes, Marseille, Milan, Turin, and Genoa, which are packed full of interesting things to do for travelers.
