IN THE SPIRIT OF MONTE CARLO
A playground for the rich and famous, Monte Carlo is the epitome of luxury and glamour. Once poor and virtually uninhabitable, it is now one of the most expensive places to purchase real estate in the world. In the Spirit of Monte Carlo explores a variety of topics, from the more than 700-year-old Grimaldi dynasty to Hollywood-darling-turned-princess Grace Kelly's celebrity impact. Filled with interviews from long-term residents as well as famous visitors, this beautifully illustrated book also covers the city's legendary Grand Prix race, the arts and culture scene, and the artists and socialites who made the principality famous.
