    There isn't. At the back of Monaco is Beausoleil, which is France.
    I lived there for a year 1972/3 (I believe I virtually spent the year in a night club)

    The castle is on an island.

    Even though the castle dominates the harbour area of the main town on this island, I had the whole place to myself...well, nearly.
