Nearly all the visitors to the southeast France pay a visit to
Monaco. Lying near the French-Italian border, Monaco is not a part
of France, but a separate principality(公国)—though it is surrounded
by its great neighbors.
Monaco became a principality in the 16th century after being owned
by a family member of a certain Italian king. The French and Italians, however, soon
came to protect it one after another until 1861, when it became its own master again.
Facing the blue Mediterranean, Monaco is mainly made up of two cities,
Monaco-ville, where the palace for the Prince stands, and Monte Carlo, which is a
wonderful place for visitors. Every year, about half a million people come to Monaco,
nearly 25 times as much as its population.
Believe it or not, Monaco has no soldiers or policemen of its own. Law and order
is kept by the French police, and France stands for it in its foreign affairs, even
the money used in Monaco is the franc, too.
