... casino. Everywhere you look there is money and opulence on display. From the yachtes in sizes small, large and super in the marina (although I have to say ours was the biggest by a long way), to the designer shops and the numerous Rolls Royce, Bentley and Ferrari cars trying to run you over.

... Was an amazing aquarium, so many weird and wonderful fish and the museum was interesting too but have to admit I was keen to get out of there and outside to see the town. We walked to the palace, and around the little streets nearby (gelato!), and then down a long windy staircase into the city. Across a square with little boys playing soccer, and down into the pit lanes and we walked along the road (track) for a while to Port Hercule, the main harbour for Monte Carlo. If we thought ...
