Monaco

Map on/off

While visiting Nice, my friends and I were also able to take a day trip to the nearby principality of Monaco. This small but independent state is known for glitz and glamour and the world-famous casino at Monte-Carlo area. It too is right on the incredibly blue Meditteranean Sea and was an interesting chance to see how the incredibly wealthy live! (1996)

Monaco's palace at the changing of the guard. Not surprisingly, lots of yachts wait in the harbor at Monaco. Probably the world's most renowned casino is here in Monte Carlo. I couldn't believe it when I saw how blue the Mediterranean could be. Here's a shot from the seaside overlook at Monte Carlo.
