Living in Monaco
Monaco is currently divided into ten residential and resort districts or 'wards'. The four traditional quarters:
• Monaco-Ville, the old city, which is seated on a rocky foreland known as the ‘Rock of Monaco’ or simply as, ‘The Rock.’
• Monte-Carlo is the principal residential and resort area, home to the famous casino, palace and the remains of the ancient fortress.
• La Condamine, the southwestern section which includes the port area Port Hercules.
• Fontvieille, created in the 1970s, is the newest of the traditional four quarters and contains Monaco’s heliport, connecting Monaco by air to Nice and the rest of the world.
And the six newer wards:
• Moneghetti was created from part of La Condamine, home of the famous Jardin Exotic.
• Larvotto was created from part of Monte Carlo
• La Rousse/Saint Roman (including Le Tenao) was also created from part of Monte Carlo
• Saint Michel created from part of Monte Carlo
• La Colle and Les Revoires were both created from La Condamine
