Monte Carlo is the main residential and resort area of the Principality of Monaco, a sovereign city state ruled for centuries by the Grimaldi family. Monaco is situated on the French Riviera, about 13km northeast of Nice, and about 16 km from the Italian border.

Monte Carlo is one of the four traditional quartiers (districts) of the Principality, the other three districts being Fontvieille, Monaco-Ville (Le Rocher), and La Condamine. Since the middle of the 19th century, Monte Carlo has been a magnet for the rich and famous, and a popular tourist resort; attractions include the Casino and the Monte Carlo Opera House (also known as Salle Garnier), which are housed in the same building.  Monaco-Ville boasts Monaco Cathedral and the Prince's Palace. Monaco is also the home of the Monte Carlo Rally, which began in 1911, and the Monaco Grand Prix, which began in 1929. Most of the Grand Prix circuit is located within Monte Carlo.
