"Monte-Carlo and money" Monte-Carlo by DSwede

Monte-Carlo Travel Guide: 130 reviews and 524 photos

OK, I grew up in Nevada, a state with legal gambling, Reno, Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas. I know money, I know casinos and I know high rollers. But Monte-Carlo takes the cake.

Custom cars all over the place, most of which would take an honest man a lifetime to afford just the down payment. There are lavish hotels that could cost a month's salary for the night, or a year's salary for the suite. The marina is full of boats that are fit for the front page of Yacht magazine.

Basically, it lives up to everything you'd imagine if too much money was concentrated to close. But it is a nice place to walk around and there are some bargain places to find to, so it has something for everyone. At least that's my impression. My friend doesn't know what to make of the city because he was too busy spending all his afternoons on the topless beaches...

Monte-Carlo is easy to get to from Nice.
