Around Monaco


Did you know that Monaco is the second smallest and most densely populated country in the world?

The state has no income tax and low business taxes, boasts the world's highest GDP nomina per capita at $172,676, has the world's lowest unemployment rate at 0%, and the world's highest life expectancy at 90 years (94 for females!). Source.

The weather is mild, the people friendly and relaxed, the scenery breathtaking...

Looks quiet but it is a fully working palace. Prince Albert II actually lives and works here.
Took this one shot before I saw the "No Photography" sign, hehe.
