A day in Monte Carlo

Monte Carlo the play land of the rich and famous is one of the four wards of the district of Monaco on set on the Beautiful Picturesque coast  of Italy. Known for its famous hotels and the most famous Casino featured in a James Bond Film, it features one of the oldest Grand Prix races as well as bicycle races.

My husband and I got to visit one recent day during a Med sailing on the luxurious new Seven Seas Explorer.

We know Monte Carlo for making Grace Kelly its queen, one of the most famous actresses from the United States. Unfortunately she was killed in a car accident going around one of its very curvy roads driving with with her daughter Princess Stephanie who was injured.

The roads are curvy, the way to get around is through the streets and tunnels that are stalked due to the buildings built into the hills owner looking the port of Monte Carlo. The port looks more like a yacht parking lot, as they come in at night a out to p,ay water activities during the day. Two main beach clubs are on the Mediterranean with Ricky sand and on a nice day the people are stalked so close because it's the best place to be seen.

Down the coast the next major town is Eze, known for its perfume factories and the Nice known for its architecture and Marc Chagall museum, opera house and train station where the bullet train to Paris originates.

All in all, Monte Carlo is small but compact with gorgeous buildings,the Kings palace on the hill which is unapproachable is one of a kind with a winding road to the top of the hill, unable to get near even to get a good picture. Horse races  shows, car races, fashion shows , touring companies for shows and operas, it is a port not to be missed. Small enough to see in a day but you won't want to leave once you get there.

The worst thing is to get off a cruise and not have a next one planned.  I have 12 coming up in year or more.
