Day Trip in Monte Carlo

April 21, 2019

Hey all, hope you’re all having a wonderful Easter! With all this lovely weather, I wishing I wasn’t hid away in my room revising for exams, but hey ho, summer is coming. Here’s me reminiscing about my day trip to Monte Carlo, and the top places to visit.

Casino de Monte-Carlo

  • opened in 1863
  • famously asscociated with James Bond
  • Entry is 17 Euros to visit inside

 

Princes Palace

  • Built in 1191
  • Today the palace is home to Prince Rainier’s son and successor, Prince Albert II

Even though the weather was a disappointment, I completely love the city. Have you ever been to Monte Carlo? Would you like to go?
