There's no getting around it. The Principality of Monaco is all about money - making it, spending it and flaunting it. A short stroll along the harbor, where some of the world's most expensive and most luxurious yachts are moored will have your eyes popping out of their sockets at the wealth on display.

The only hotel in Monte Carlo with its own private beach, Le Meridien Beach Plaza offers plush accommodations and contemporary flair.
Monte Carlo thrives on spectacle and glitz. The big one for the year has to be the Formula One Grand Prix, held in mid-May, when the world's best drivers hit the city streets and crossing the road becomes an extreme sport. Those who can't get enough of big, throbbing engines should also be in town in January for the Monte Carlo Motor Rally. Dedicated to showing off in all its forms, Monaco also hosts the International Circus Festival in January, the Great Magic Prize (an international prestidigitators' playoff) in March and the International Fireworks Competition (duked out in the natural amphitheater of Monaco's harbor) in early August.
