History of MonacoMonte Carlo, situated in the heart of the Principality of Monaco is often described as "The Jewel in the Crown of the French Riviera", The Côte d'Azur. Famous for its casinos, the deluxe palace hotels, superb gourmet dining, tax-friendly business environment and year-round world-class events.

Monte Carlo, playground of the rich and famous and part of the lifestyle for the successful people around the world, is blessed with more than 300 sunny days a year. The Principality of Monaco, steeped in a rich and colourful history, has attracted people to its shores for centuries.

The Rock of Monaco, because of its natural beauty and strategic position on the Mediterranean, has always been prized territory. During the Roman era, Julius Caesar launched his Greek campaign from Monaco's port.

The Grimaldi ascent began one night in 1297, when François Grimaldi seized the fortress of Monaco from a rival Italian faction. In 1999, The Principality of Monaco celebrated Prince Rainier's Jubilee — the 50th anniversary of His ascension to the throne.

In the early 20th century, the era known as the 'Belle Epoque', Monaco and Monte Carlo flourished. European nobility, tycoons and world-renowned entertainers flocked to Monte Carlo, lured by its reputation of epicurean delights, electrifying atmosphere and limitless luxury and sunshine.

As brilliant a history as it has had, Monte Carlo hardly lives in the glow of its past. It still enjoys a reputation as a vibrant community that attracts the world's most talented artists and athletes.

From classical performances at the famous Opera House to cutting-edge exhibitions to world famous sporting events such as the Monaco Grand Prix and the Monte Carlo Open Tennis, there is always something exciting to see in Monte Carlo.

Monte Carlo is an ideal home base for excursions into Monaco's Old Town, to visit the Vintage Car Museum or the Oceanographic Museum. Or simply discover neighbouring France and Italy by car, train or helicopter.
