In Assouline's impressive coffee-table book "Monte Carlo," Ségolène Cazenave Manara, a writer and journalist for Glamour, Première, Libération and French television, among others, invites readers to explore her personal version of Monte Carlo. Cazenave Manara has lived in Monaco since 2010, where she decided to pursue more personal writing activities.

A wealth of glitz and glamour awaits on an exclusive two-mile coastline along the Mediterranean Sea. High-rollers, professional athletes and international stars flock to Monaco. Although this rocky promontory is filled with flashy sports cars, luxury apartments, super yachts and unlimited entertainment, it is not lacking in culture and history. The sovereign family ensures that the principality's distinguished heritage is preserved and appreciated. And the lavish opulence is as charming as the charm. The newly designed Foster + Partners Yacht Club de Monaco stands in stark contrast to the monumental Baroque building that houses the Musée Océanographique de Monaco. The Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, which exhibits the latest in contemporary art, is a complete 180 compared to Monaco's princely palace, which dates back to the 12th century. Yet all of this exists harmoniously within two hundred acres of land.

Monaco's list of regulars reads like the guest list of the ultimate private party. Whether they are enticed by the top races (Monaco Grand Prix, Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters), the unmissable events (Ballets de Monte-Carlo, Monaco National Day), the iconic properties of the Société des Bains de Mer (Monte Carlo Casino, Hôtel de Paris Monte Carlo, Monte-Carlo Beach) or the Michelin-starred restaurants (LeLouis XV, Rampoldi, Pavyllon Monte-Carlo), celebrities from around the world keep returning time and again. With exclusive images from the palace archives and a foreword by Prince Albert II of Monaco, the Monte Carlo coffee-table book offers readers a front-row seat with VIP access to the pearl of the French Riviera.
