    Day 42 - Monaco

    May 27, 2016 in Monaco ⋅ ⛅ 72 °F

    After yesterday's incredible party on the yacht today was a much calmer affair with the day spent in Monaco watching the GP2 (surprisingly a lot louder than F1) race and the Porshe Supercup. With some great seats in the stands we managed to get up very close to the cars and pits and after the racing was finished got the chance to walk the track before they opened the roads again to the public.

    Headed back to Nice this evening and with yesterday catching up on me it's an early night to recharge for the weekend.

    French Riviera Tour - Monaco

    June 26, 2018 in Monaco ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Bucket list - ticked! Always wanted to visit Monaco, I have grown up watching F1 and it always looked so glamorous that I always said I had to visit and it did not disappoint, however I was not prepared for how much money there is in Monaco, it was a real eye opener! It was however unbelievable! I managed to walk the actual F1 circuit, gaze at the ships at the marina and gamble in the Monte Carlo casino which was an experience in its self! Will 100% return.... but with more money!Read more

    Monte Carlo, Monaco

    August 20, 2017 in Monaco ⋅ ⛅ 68 °F

    We met our guide for a private full day tour. Our itinerary included all the key sites in both Monaco and Nice: Driving on the Formula 1 track and Corniches, Casino Monte-Carlo, visiting the Palais du Prince, the Villa de Rothschild and the medieval, mountaintop village of Eze. In Nice we walked the Vieux Nice (old square and market). We saw a long line at a food stand and thought that it must be special. It was Socca, the local pan bagnat which was very good.Read more

    Monaco und Basketball

    January 29 in Monaco ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    Heute stand der Betriebsausflug nach Monaco an. Ziel Sightseeing und Eurocup Monaco - ALBA.
    Alle Aufgaben mit Bravour gemeistert.
    Monaco selber ist gar nicht so groß. Recht simpel vor die Berge geklatscht, so dass Treppenlaufen eine wichtige Fortbewegungsmethode ist. Hoch, runter, vorbei an Yachten, Nobelboutiquen, Casino über MC Donalds, Subway und den üblichen Verdächtigen zum Fussball-Stadion mitten in der Stadt. In den Katakomben des Stadions befindet sich die als Trainingshalle anmutende Spielstätte des AS Monaco Basketball.
    Von Nizza mit dem Regio hin und zurück, je 25 Minuten Fahrzeit für 4,10€ die Strecke. Funktioniert ganz gut.
    Monaco kann man gesehen haben, ist jetzt aber nicht so der Sweetspot.

    Monaco

    April 27, 2016 in Monaco ⋅ 🌬 18 °C

    There was time for a quick stop at Monaco to see the Jacques Cousteau Museum that Aaron has been wanting to see. Jacques Cousteau was a marine conservationist that produced many documentaries to raise awareness for his work. He also co-developed the Aqua-Lung, better known as scuba gear or underwater breathing apparatus.

    We were rather disappointed with the museum. We were misinformed about what the exhibition was about. We thought it would feature Jacques Cousteau's life and conservation work but it was mainly a small aquarium with displays of preserved marine animals. It did have a good view of Monaco from the top of the museum though.

    It was not a wasted trip. We got to walk along a section of the Grand Prix circuit! Aaron's stoked. Unfortunately, our bad timing will see us miss the Monaco Grand Prix by a month. Maybe next time.

    Day 408: Monaco

    March 29, 2018 in Monaco ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Up and out quite early, heading eastwards along the coast towards Monaco. It's actually quite close to Nice, only about 30 kilometres, but it's a fairly slow road. Wanted to stop in a cute little village about halfway along but couldn't find parking!

    Drove across into Monaco and struggled again to find somewhere to park! There are several parking lots underground, but the specific one we were looking for was really difficult to find, and in the end we just parked in a different one, underneath the Old Town.

    It's an interesting little place, Monaco, since there are separate districts within the town and they're all quite different. We started underneath the Old Town where the streets are quite narrow and small, though obviously the buildings aren't actually that old. Had a look at the royal palace and watched the changing of the guard ceremony (much smaller than the one at Buckingham Palace!), and had a look at the cathedral too. Found out later that this is where Princess Grace is buried.

    Walked down the hill from the old town to the main harbour, where we wandered a bit and had a look at the main straight of the grand prix track. Was mildly amused to see a Volkswagen dealership almost directly opposite the start-finish line! Choked a bit on seeing restaurant prices in the area, so ended up with supermarket sandwiches for lunch instead!

    Walked around the foreshore through the grand prix tunnel and eventually up to the Casino, where lots of tourists were hanging around but not much was happening. You can poke your head in for a look at the foyer without paying several hundred euros, so we did that one at a time since dogs aren't permitted inside!

    Wandered a little more in this area before deciding it was time to head back to the car. Struggled again to navigate our way out of the city since our phones weren't working (underground + no network since it's a different country!), but we managed and took the coastal road back to Nice.

    Rather than head straight back to our apartment, we headed for the centre of town instead. There's a huge long promenade and beachfront which was quite nice, and by now it was lovely and sunny so we rather enjoyed it and spent a bit of time just sitting around enjoying the warmth.

    Later in the evening we met up with a blogger friend of Shandos's who lives here in Nice. Had a couple of drinks and some dinner with her which was fun. She also showed us around a bit of the old town as well - there's a beautiful large garden area set back from the waterfront that's also very lovely!

    Finally headed home around 9pm, very late for us!

    May 31, 2016 in Monaco ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Second smallest country in the world! Check! Apparently, you can walk across the entire country in an average of 52 minutes, so I'm thinking I could do it in half an hour 😀

    We were there only a few days after the F1 Monaco Grand Prix, so they were still in the process of taking down everything that's set up for the race. The most famous hairpin turn in F1 is in Monaco, right in front of the Fairmont Hotel, and I was there!

    We walked up to Prince Albert's Palace for some photo opportunities and group shots... Not surprisingly, amazing views!

    Our last stop was a casino in Monte Carlo... I felt like I was on the set of Casino Royale! The last time I gambled, aside from my lottery ticket purchase after my hole in one, was when I turned 18, so I figured this was a great opportunity... I played blackjack and doubled my €50 starting buy in to €100, so I'm probably good for another 15 years! I also picked up some pamphlets at the casino explaining the rules of various table games. Craps is a game i have zero understanding of, so that read should be interesting.

    Monaco

    October 17, 2017 in Monaco ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    Nun, wie soll man Monaco beschreiben: Klein, voll(er Touristen) und laut. Ach ja und eine einzige Baustelle 🙄 Nach einer 30-minütigen Tour mit einer kleinen Bimmelbahn - vorbei an den wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten und natürlich entlang der Rennstrecke - machten wir einen kleinen Spaziergang rund um den Hafen durch ein paar kleine Seitenstraßen zurück zum ozeanographischen Museum, welches wir uns unbedingt noch anschauen wollten.

    Unser Fazit zu Monaco: "Kann man machen, muss man aber nicht.“

    Schön fanden wir eigentlich nur den Felsvorsprung mit dem Museum, der Kathedrale und dem Palast. Und vielleicht die teuren Autos, welche wir in dieser Anzahl vorher noch nicht gesehen hatten. Aber keines war so cool wie unser Bob 😎
