Monaco and Monte Carlo

The Principality of Monaco is a sovereign and independent state in the South of France. Monaco and its surroundings offer marvelous landscapes like Cap d’Ail, La Turbie, Beausoleil and Roquebrune Cap Martin. Sea views on the Mediterranean, the several bays with exclusive Yachts, dream cars and glitter will make your stay impressif, maybe unforgettable.

Monte Carlo

La Côte d'Azur, Monaco - Monte Carlo - The Grimaldi family - F1
"Monte Carlo“ is a district in Monaco named after Prince Carlo III who had the brilliant idea to build a Casino.
A paradise for gamblers because that time in France
gambling was forbidden. So a lot of rich people were attracted by this Casino builded by Ch. Garnier, a famous architect who also created the Opera in Paris

Two different cultures, one city

You will find here waterfalls and Japanese ponds, bamboo fences, a Tea house, stone lanterns, tiles and wooden gates, all “Made in Japan”

    So there is really more to Monte Carlo than the casino. I was surprised to read about the Japanes gardens there.

    Wow Luc, a business trip to end all business trips! Fantastic pics and thanks for the inside story on Monte-Carlo. I'd heard of it but never paid much attention before. We found the Japanese Garden in Buenos Aires very relaxing, this one looks great too!

    I never knew there was so much Japanese culture in Monaco. I've just seen an opera about the Grimaldi family, namely Verdi's Simon Boccanegra. (Takes place in the 14th century.)
