As a section of the city-state of Monaco, Monte Carlo is a picturesque city positioned along the French Riviera between the Mediterranean Sea and France. While the the ward of Monte Carlo is home to only about 3,500 residents, Monte Carlo skyline panoramas display one of the most densely populated countries in the world. Set against the backdrop of the Maritime Alps, Monte Carlo is unique in that any new development in the country must be on land reclaimed from the sea.
With so little space available, it is easy to understand why so much city action takes place in its yacht harbor. This is a beautiful setting, especially with new traffic brought to the country with its cruise ship pier constructed in 2003. The East portion of the city is home to the quarter's only public beach, and many world-famous celebrities are spotted vacationing there.
There are a number of luxury resorts and hotels to spot in Monte Carlo panoramic pictures, many internationally known. Some of these prestigious establishments include the Hotel de Paris, Cafe de Paris, and the Salle Garnier, home to the Monte Carlo Opera. On western end of the quarter is the world-famous Place du Casino, historically fueling the city-state's renown for extravagance and wealth. The annual Monaco Grand Prix is held here, the oldest Formula One race.
Featured in countless movies and TV shows, Monte Carlo panoramic pictures beautifully show off a jewel of the Mediterranean, making it easy to see why the city continues to be a destination for so many.
