Monaco Things to Do: 217 reviews and 508 photos

by NiceLife

Every T-shirt shop window displays portraits of the new Harvard-educated monarch, Albert. "Congratulations, Albert" "Best Wishes Albert", "Long Live Albert!" When 5,000 Monegasques depend for their livelihood on the leadership of the new king, its smart to start on his good side.

You can imagine his court.
Albert: I think we need to get away from this tax-dodging image, get more environmentally concerned. Show our caring side.

Courtiers: "Brilliant idea, your serene highness. Why couldn't we have thought of that? Genuis, your serene highness, such insight, such vision!"

Albert:: We need an eye-catching slogan that signals the new, caring Monaco "

Courtiers: "Brilliant idea. Genuis, your serene highness, such insight, such vision..errr...we could relaunch a modernised royal family, call it " New Monarchy (tax rates unchanged)"

Albert: (sighs) "Father would have approved"

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
