Monaco is the second smallest independent state in the world after the Vatican. The principality paradoxically offers tourists many entertainments.
The visit of the old town on the Rock (rocky promontory extending into the Mediterranean,) allows to discover the Prince’s Palace, the Cathedral and the Oceanographic Museum with its famous aquarium. It is also the site of Monegasque institutions (Town Hall, Government, National Council (parliament of Monaco)).
The district of Monte Carlo is famous for its Casino, Hotel de Paris, the Opera and Ballet. That of Fontvieille houses the Stadium Louis-II where plays the AS Monaco football club. The stadium also hosts athletics meetings and the final of the European Super Cup.
The principality also serves as a framework for various sporting events which include the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix (world championship of Formula 1), the Rally Automobile Monte-Carlo and the Monte-Carlo Masters of the Monte Carlo Country Club.
Botanical Gardens lovers can visit the exotic garden of Monaco particularly in May when the cactuses are in bloom. Each winter, the city welcomes the International Circus Festival of Monaco.
Heritage Days are an excellent opportunity to discover the main attractions, including the grand apartments of the Prince's Palace, the residence of Minister of State, the National Council. The Oceanographic Museum provides, at this occasion, a right of admission at reduced prices.
