THE MONACO CO­NUN­DRUM

Lonely Planet (UK) - - Best Road Trips Picos De Europa -

At just 0.78 sq miles (2.02 sq km), Monaco is small, but it punches way above its weight. With a pop­u­la­tion of about 38,000, it’s the world’s sec­ond small­est and most densely pop­u­lated coun­try. It’s a sov­er­eign state, ruled by the Grimaldi fam­ily since 1297, with its own flag, an­them and stamps – not to men­tion lax tax laws. The casino – a favourite of James Bond – is in the har­bour district of Monte Carlo.
