What is Monte Carlo known for?


long association

GCB (Order of the Bath), GBE (Order of the British Empire) Zaharoff often called himself ''Sir'' Basil Zaharoff, but as a foreign citizen his knighthoods were in fact only honorary and he was not strictly entitled to the honorific. (October 6, 1849, Muğla, Ottoman Empire – November 27, 1936, Monte Carlo, Monaco), born '''Zacharias Basileios Zacharoff''', was an arms dealer and financier. Although he often lied about his origins, he formally became a French citizen in 1908, and worked for the Vickers


single stage

Challenge season 2009 it has been the opening round of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC) programme. As recently as 1991 (1991 World Rally Championship season), competitors were able to choose their starting points from approximately five venues roughly equidistant from Monte Carlo (one of Monaco's administrative areas) itself. With often varying conditions at each starting point (typically comprising dry tarmac, wet tarmac, snow, and ice, sometimes all in a single stage of the rally), this placed a big emphasis on tyre choices, as a driver has to balance the need for grip on ice and snow with the need for grip on dry tarmac. For the driver, this is often a difficult choice as the tyres that work well on snow and ice normally perform badly on dry tarmac.

based series

the heights of Monte Carlo; an interesting coincidence to her actual fate in 1982. Monte Carlo was even a location for the late 1960s British London based series ''Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)'' where in the eleventh episode of the series, "The Ghost who Saved the Bank at Monte Carlo", Mike Pratt (Mike Pratt (actor)), Kenneth Cope and Annette Andre went to Monte Carlo to accompany a highly talented elderly woman to gamble inside the casino and waylay a group of thugs (amongst them Brian Blessed). In 1970, Chevrolet introduced a car called the Chevrolet Monte Carlo which went through six generations of production until 2007. The motor race Monaco World Prix 1 in Monte Carlo also featured in the 2010 film ''Iron Man 2''. Other films such as ''I Spy (I Spy (film))'', Cars 2 and ''Monte Carlo (Monte Carlo (2011 film))'' use the city as a setting. The video game series ''Gran Turismo (Gran Turismo (series))'' often features Monte Carlo as a location, and the Indie (Independent video game development) game "Monaco: What's Yours is Mine" features Monte Carlo as a setting. There are two difficult heists in the endgame that take place in the Casino.

began the composition of ''Ivanhoe'' in May 1890, finishing the score in December 1890. Chorus rehearsals for ''Ivanhoe'' began in November, with Alfred Cellier as chorus master, and his brother François Cellier became musical director of the new theatre. Gordon-Powell, Robin. ''Ivanhoe'', full score, Introduction, vol. I, p. X, 2008, The Amber Ring In April 1890, Gilbert challenged Carte over Richard D'Oyly Carte#End of the partnership and last years

partnership expenses at the Savoy Theatre, including a new carpet for the lobby. To Gilbert's surprise and indignation, Sullivan sided with Carte – after all, Carte was producing his opera – and Gilbert sued Carte and Sullivan in May. The lawsuit was ongoing during much of the period of composition of ''Ivanhoe'', and Sullivan wrote to Gilbert in September 1890 that he was "physically and mentally ill over this wretched business. I have not yet got over the shock of seeing our names coupled ... in hostile antagonism over a few miserable pounds". Lamb (1973), p. 477 Sullivan completed the score too late to meet Carte's planned production date, and costs mounted as the producer had to pay performers, crew and others, while the theatre sat empty. Sullivan was required to pay Carte a contractual penalty of £3,000 for his delay. Jacobs, pp. 328–29 Ainger, p. 322 In 1883 Béatrice de Rothschild married the Russian-born banker Maurice Ephrussi (1849–1916) member of the Ephrussi family and who had been involved in with Rothschild families' oil business in the Baku area of present-day Azerbaijan. The couple maintained a home in Monte Carlo and Béatrice de Rothschild used her wealth to travel the world and to acquire a collection of paintings including Old Masters, plus sculptures, ''objets d'art'', rare porcelain and antique furniture. She also commissioned the ''Rothschild Fabergé egg (Rothschild (Fabergé egg))'' in 1902, presenting it to her future sister-in-law, Germaine Alice Halphen, on the occasion of her engagement to Édouard Alphonse James de Rothschild. The use of the line "I've been to crying for unborn children that might have made me complete", refers to a woman who is at a point in her life that she wished she had taken the time to have children. However, this was deemed too close to "feminist" issues and when Charlene's song was first released in 1976, the version used was the one without that portion (which is not part of the spoken bridge). Another line is written "I've been undressed by kings and I've seen somethings that a woman ain't supposed to see", it tells of the event that resulted to downfall of her life after she moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo (Harlow here is Jean Harlow, an American actress and sex symbol) while taking time with pleasures.

Monte Carlo

'''Monte Carlo''' ( , Monégasque (Monégasque dialect): ''Monte-Carlu'') officially refers to an administrative area of the Principality of Monaco, specifically the ward (Ward (country subdivision)) 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 (Saint Roman, Monaco), Larvotto Bas Moulins (Larvotto), and Saint Michel (Saint Michel, Monaco). 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 (Fontvieille, Monaco) (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". "Monaco" in ''The New Encyclopædia Britannica'', 15th edition (Chicago, 1991), vol. 8, p. 243. It is also the location of the Hôtel de Paris (Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo), 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 Monaco's only public beach, as well as its new convention center (the Grimaldi Forum), and the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort. At the quarter's eastern border, one crosses into the French (France) town of Beausoleil (Beausoleil, Alpes-Maritimes) (sometimes referred to as Monte-Carlo-Supérieur), and just to its east is the western border of Italy.
