Officially in the French Riviera now, and this is one of the major towns. Rick Steves says its "Nice in Nice" and he is right on. Its got one big avenue cutting through the center of town and tons of shops and restaurants leading up to the ocean. I finally break down and eat my first american fast food meal of the trip (McDonalds) and its better here than back home. Maybe thats because its been a few weeks, but there is something definitely different about the taste. I do make one mistake, and thts trying out the local chinese food, and I pay for it with a really bad stomach ache and runs. I want to go to Cannes on the second day, but I dont wake up early enough. Its a choice between Cannes and Monte Carlo... Monte Carlo wins this one. The Monte Carlo Casino looks bigger in the 007 movie... its tiny but very oppulent.
