Overview

Until 21 June 1996, Monaco formed part of the French numbering plan, with fixed line numbers beginning with 93. [2] On that date the Principality adopted its own country code +377. [3] Consequently, all calls between France and Monaco had to be dialled in international format, including those to and from surrounding areas in France. [4]
