Beautiful Monaco....



The climb from Port Hercule up to Le Rocher is worth every huff and puff!
I nearly turned back several times but the views from the top were just stunning
This is multi-million dollar paradise and it shows.

I loved Monaco! So clean, so beautiful, gorgeous place! Great photo too.

Indeed it does. Monaco is such statement on the French Riveria. But I am still drawn in. x

Hi Diane,

Monaco looks such a beautiful place and your photograph looks like a postcard. Glad you got to the top and worth all the huffing and puffing.
One day I hope to get to visit this magnificent place.

Hugs

Dianne, and just along the coast is Menton. We stayed there for only one reason, our suberb of Mentone in Melbourne takes its name from the city on the border of France and Italy. Beautiful pic.

Oh my! What a stunning view... when we see a similar perspective in a travel magazine it is not as impressive as someone you know who made the climb! Great shot and survey of the magnificent Monaco!

Bises,
