Nightsky’s Riviera trip part 5 – Monaco

Monaco is a very beautiful city state on the French Riviera, close to Italy.
We went off in Monaco for a couple of hours on the way to Italy. I took a lot of pictures.









And the rest can be found on my website, World Travel Images:

At this place next to Jardin du Casino you can drive a red Ferrari Modena 80 euro (40 euro for being a co-driver) along the road that are used during the Monaco Grand Prix.

Gare de Monaco. The modern central station, that opened in 2001. It consists of four floors of glass, built inside a rock. After arriving by train , you can take the elevator down to get to street level. But there are both trafficated streets above the station and below, at sea level. The Church of St Devote of Monaco from 1870 stands in front as a big contrast to the new station.
