In the Spirit of Monte Carlo

Symbolizing luxury and old-fashioned glamour, Monte Carlo is a glorious Eden: perfectly manicured and architecturally grand. Today it is the most expensive piece of real estate on the planet—remarkable considering it was once poor, virtually uninhabitable, rather inaccessible, and facing a bleak future. From its ancient Phoenician origins to its development in the Belle Époque to its burgeoning power as a global financial center, In the Spirit of Monte Carlo chronicles the more than 700-year-old Grimaldi dynasty, the creation of the powerful Société des Bains de Mer, the artists and socialites who first put the Principality on the map and how Hollywood darling Grace Kelly attracted the celebrity spotlight.
