"Monaco is not just Monte-Carlo" Monaco Favorite Tip by TRimer

Monaco General: 125 reviews and 124 photos

Favorite thing: Monaco is really just one big town, but it likes to think of itself as four separate areas.

Monaco Ville is the old town, built on the rock; Monte Carlo is the glitzy area north of the port; La Condamine is the port itself; and Fontvieille is an industrial area south-west of the port. A system of public lifts lugs pedestrians up and down Monaco's steep hillside.
