Monte Carlo, Monaco

“There are people who have money and people who are rich.” ~ Coco Chanel

Monaco, a land of the filthy rich is truly a mythic place located between the Alpes and the Mediterranean Sea that offer fairy tale dreams to become reality. It is a playground for mega rich. Rich or not, single or with your family this wonderful Principality of Monaco will offer you a universe of many sides where everything is done to your satisfaction.

Prince Albert who is the current reigning monarch of the Principality of Monaco is one of the wealthiest royals in the world. Even though Monaco is a very tiny nation of about 40,000 residents and the size of Central Park in New York City, it has more billionaires per capita than anywhere else in the World. That might be because Monaco is tax haven for rich people since it doesn’t have personal income tax and has attracted a big number of wealthy residents from European countries, celebrities, business royalties and sports stars who earn their income from all over the world.

It is mecca for super ultra-expensive vehicles, yachts, and casinos. Monte Carlo is not a quiet place for rich. At the contrary to what you may expect, it is a place that gets loud as residents rev up their super-car engines when they drive town. Cars like Ferrari, Bentley, Lamborghini, and other grandiose super cars is very common to see all over Monaco. They drive those cars to their yachts where they have their afternoon cocktails on. During the Formula One race one can see all these amazingly expensive fast cars being smashed on the streets of Monte Carlo. img_6397
