Glittering, glitzy Monaco is a tiny royal principality on the French Riviera. Less than two square kilometers in size, it is possibly the most glamorous little stretch of land on Earth.
Why exhibit there?
The principality is a banking center and has sought to diversify into services and small, high-value-added, non-polluting industries.
The state has no income tax and low business taxes and thrives as a tax haven both for individuals and for foreign companies that have set up businesses and offices there.
30% of Monaco residents are millionaires.
The nearest airport is in France (Nice – Cote d'Azur Airport), which is about 22 km from Monaco. There are regular helicopter flights to shuttle passengers between Cote d'Azur Airport and Monaco with a flight time around 7 minutes.
Alternatively, you can take the train. Catch the No 99 shuttle bus from the airport to Nice-Ville station (€6), then jump on the TER service to Monaco. The rail trip takes 21 minutes and costs around €4.
Or take the bus. Take the 110 Express service from either Terminal 1 or Terminal 2 at the airport. It will get you to Monaco in around 45 minutes for €20 one way, €30 return.
