    Monte Carlo (French Monte-Carlo or colloquially Monte-Carl,
    Monégasque Monte-Carlu) officially refers to an administrative
    area of the Principality of Monaco, specifically the ward of Monte
    Carlo/Spélugues, where the Monte Carlo Casino is located.
    Informally the name also refers to a larger district, the Monte
    Carlo Quarter (corresponding to the former municipality of Monte
    Carlo), which besides Monte Carlo/Spélugues also includes the wards
    of La Rousse/Saint Roman, Larvotto/Bas Moulins, and Saint Michel.
    The permanent population of the ward of Monte Carlo is about 3,500,
    while that of the quarter is about 15,000. Monaco has four
    traditional quarters. From west to east they are Fontvieille (the
    newest), Monaco-Ville (the oldest), La Condamine, and Monte
    Carlo.Monte Carlo (literally Mount Charles) is situated on a
    prominent escarpment at the base of the Maritime Alps along the
    French Riviera. Near the western end of the quarter is the
    world-famous Place du Casino, the gambling center which has made
    Monte Carlo an international byword for the extravagant display and
    reckless dispersal of wealth.[1] It is also the location of the
    Hôtel de Paris, the Café de Paris, and the Salle Garnier (the
    casino theatre which is the home of the Opéra de Monte-Carlo). The
    eastern part of the quarter includes the community of Larvotto with
    Monacos only public beach, as well as its new convention center (the
    Grimaldi Forum), and the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel amp; Resort. At its
    eastern border one crosses into the French town of Beausoleil
    (sometimes referred to as Monte-Carlo-Supérieur), and just 5 miles
    (8 km) further east is the western border of Italy.
