One of the smallest cities in the world with it’s two square kilometers is in the top 10 of the most famous cities. And if I have to be honest — it’s spectacular.
Traveling through the French Riviera while enjoying the road — rocky cliffs, sunlight and beautiful turquoise sea — you can feel the relaxation in the air. Our romance started in Nice and continued in Monaco where we stayed for just one night.
This little city is the center for casino games, high-profile events, yacht clubs and the most important for some of us — tax haven. So much so that you can in fact smell the luxury — it’s everywhere — latest fashion trends, sparkling champagne and top restaurants.
Our time was limited so we did the best we can to see the top destinations. As usual we made the plan at the last moment. Here is a quick list:
CASINO DE MONTE-CARLO
I am sure that you know that casino very well from the movies with James Bond and Iron Man.
Traveling almost all day we had no time to change so we did that in one gas station. You can see results here:
The atmosphere around the Casino is phenomenal. It’s easy to feel like you are in a movie with Merilyn Monroe. Everything was shiny and glamorous, full of energy and happiness.
Monte Carlo was built in 1863 and its style influenced Monaco’s architecture. Old school architecture with curved lines, structures and flowers. Combine this with sliding golden lights and light breeze.
Make sure that you charged your phone — the photos will be amazing!
Casino Gardens and Terraces
In front of the Casino you will find a garden full of grand palms and small waterfalls which terminates at its lowest point in a large pond. The garden is full of exotic plants… perhaps that’s why they call it “Little Africa”.
If you are with your girl now it’s time to take her heart — invite her to dance with you on your favorite song. She will definitely enjoy the moment and feel special!
After the Casino and the Garden you can stroll around Port Hercule. The view is amazing — many yachts, sparkling lights, people having fun.
There is a little garden on the left side where you can take some unforgettable shots with your camera.
This was my visit to Monaco. It was short but unforgettable. The town is one of my favorite places in Europe and if you have a chance to visit it — don’t miss it!
