Day 216 – Monaco

Today we continued to explore the playground of the rich and famous by taking a day trip to Monaco. Our bus ride along the coastline from Nice to Monaco was extremely scenic (the French Riviera is gorgeous!). Upon arriving in Monaco, we took a walking tour of this very posh city. Monaco is in a league of its own when it comes to luxury goods and services. The streets are filled with expensive cars and the ports are packed with multi-million dollar yachts. It was interesting to see this tax haven city state.
