The Principality of Monaco is a tiny city-state, which borders with France on three sides and is washed by the Ligurian Sea on the forth. The territory of this small country is only 202 hectares, but, despite its small size, it is a member of the UN, the Council of Europe, and many other important international organizations.
For most tourists, Monaco is associated with the eponymous Formula One race, as well as with the fashionable vacation in Monte Carlo, a region famous for its casinos and yachting. However, this does not mean that only gamblers and rich people can be interested in the country. Despite the high prices for hotels and the generally high cost of the vacation, those who travel independently and plan their trips themselves can also find some places of interest there. A keen traveler would certainly love to visit the Prince's Palace of Monaco, the ancient capital of Monaco-Ville, The Business Center in La Condamine, The Oceanographic Museum, and the Private Collection of Antique Cars of H.S.H. Prince Rainier III.
If you are wondering how to order a taxi in Monaco, keep in mind that the official taxi fleet consists of only 90 cars that operate in shifts. Especially the lack of vehicles in Monaco taxi service is noticeable in the summer months when you have to compete with other tourists in order to get a taxi trip. People here usually hail a taxi with a hand, but you can also order a taxi by phone through a call-center (although the operators mostly speak French). Be careful: after ordering a taxi at the reception desk in the hotel, you will have to leave a tip for the receptionist in gratitude for the services.
The average cost of a taxi trip around the country is 12-20 euros, but a long-distance travel will cost more. For example, the trip from Nice to Monaco or vice versa will cost you 70-100 euros, and the prices are growing every year.
