Highest point is 161 meters above sea level, so i think it is really low for Alps

Yes, but Monaco is on the slope of Mont Agel, which is an Alp. I'd include it.

The Alps are the highest and most extensive mountain range system that lies entirely in Europe, stretching approximately 1,200 kilometres (750 mi) across eight Alpine countries: Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Slovenia, and Switzerland.

It has nothing to do with the altitude, it is surrounded by mountains. The Mont Agel is an alpine mountain from the bottom to the top, it doesn't "start" being a mountain at 1000 m! And if the bottom is the sea, then the seashore is in the Alps :)

I agree with this for the reasons mentioned above. Thank you for adding it, but I guess you can't make everyone happy... Maybe it would be a reasonable compromise to have it greyed out?

Can I be the 9400th person to say that the quiz is Countries IN The Alps, not countries with the bottom bit of one Alp in it. Whilst no particular Alps are specified, it does at least specify the plural. I’m calling for a resolution which says that countries must be in possession of a minimum of two Alps to be included as an Alpine country. Although, obviously you’ll never get the Swiss to agree to this. Sure, they are possessed of an embarrassment of Alps, but the Swiss don’t ever agree to anything. Ever.

By calling this quiz "Alps Countries" you would also have to include New Zealand - as it has territory in the Southern Alps.

Monaco is indubitably at sea level, and it is so small that if it was stood entirely on its end ... which it kind of is ... it wouldn't be high enough to be classed as more than a hill.

Here, in Hungary we have a mesoregion called "Alpokalja". It means (with mirror translating): "Bottom of the Alps". Here's the wikipedia article about it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpokalja

The German or Hungarian page of this article has more information, try read those if you can. :) I hope it helps everyone wondering about the Kőszeg Hills.

San Marino, being in the northern part of Italy, seems to belong, but Monaco is definitely in the Alps,regardless of how "low" it is.

Mont Agel is alpine and Monaco sits on its slope.

San Marino is south of the Po valley and lies within the Apennine mountain rage. It is nowhere near close to the alps.

Agreed with all of the comments that Monaco should be included, regardless of its size and elevation. It is on the slope of the Alps and is defined as one of the eight countries located in the Alps by every source I can find.

Fun fact: the Alps technically continue into the Mediterranean Sea. The fold mountain ridge continues all the way past Italy, but as underwater mountains. Famously, Cyprus is the one island where the undersea alps actually poke out above the water’s surface. Of course, this means that the western half of Cyprus is actually in the Alps. The eastern half, of course, runs into the early slope of Olympus Mons.
