Part 2 ! The bus drove us to the other side of the coast on what is called the Middle Corniche-one of the three (lower and higher) roads that go across the Riviera. pretty views
We stopped in Monaco-one of the richest countries in the world, and home of the largest number of million/billionaires. The same royal family has been in rule for over 700 years! It felt like I was in one of those fake play towns that was just upscaled-everything is so clean and well kept-and very easy(expensive) on the eyes.
The view of Monte Carlo
Dad and I really struggled trying to get to Monte Carlo-got lost a couple times-walked, took a ferry, ran, caught a bus. it really shouldn’t have taken us as long as it did. But after about 45 minutes of wandering we made it. You can feel the wealth everywhere-the people, the buildings, even the butlers and the buses.
we stopped and ate in the famous Hotel de Paris…I think I’ve said “famous this” about seven times now..it all is! all glamorous.
The parking was more a display of cars: porsche, bentley, mercedes. Even the taxis were mercedes..no yellow cabs around here. BTW FYI it is impossible to catch a cab here-most of the people rent a cab for an entire day, but the buses are in such clean shape it didn’t even seem like a city bus.
couple more pictures to end…
Then a nice ride back to Villefranche taking the high Corniche. We passed by the little town of Eze on the way back. I remember being so sleepy on the ride i can hardly remember getting back haha.
Have a good Sunday!
