 Monte Carlo is situated in the principality of Monaco on the eastern edge of the French Riviera (Côte d'Azur). From the mid nineteenth century onwards (along with other Riviera towns such as Cannes and Nice), it became a fashionable holiday destination for members of the British upper classes and for various writers and artists.
