Monaco enjoys a delightful position within Europe. Those living here can experience a true Monegasque way of life, knowing that within a matter of minutes, they can be in France and are only about 40 minutes away from Italy and its gorgeous coastline. Mercantour National Park is just to the north, and to the west is Nice along with its airport.
