Monte Carlo, Monaco

Monte Carlo are two words that are synonymous with luxury and splendor. Lying at the heart of the French Riviera, this tiny principality makes up for its size with its global reputation for glamour.

Ostentatious is perhaps too strong a word, but diamonds, lavish yachts and Ferraris are all part of the lifestyle here. As is a flutter at Monte Carlo’s most famous landmark, the Grand Casino.
