Monaco

Monaco is the world’s second-smallest country after Vatican City and is the playground of the rich and famous. Known for its yacht-filled harbour, the 200-hectare country is part of the French Riviera and has a mix of modern and traditional landmarks, including the Royal Palace – originally built as a fortress in the 13th century, as well as high-rise hotels and apartment buildings.
