Views of Monaco

The last photos of Monaco I have are thee panoramic views of the Principality taken from the Prince’s Palace in Monaco-Ville.  They include views of Port Hercule and the high-rises (La Condamine and Monte Carlo), a relatively new area reclaimed from the sea in the 1970s (Fontvieille), and a more sweeping view of the Southwest (Fontvieille and La Colle).  Finally, as our coach was leaving Monaco, one passenger noted a traffic sign that was so complex, he commented, “That’s why we leave the driving to them!”
