When you think of a place where there are nothing but rich people, you tend to think Beverly Hills.
But when you think of a place where the really, really, really rich people are – there’s Monaco.
Since our trip to Menton was going to take us past Monaco, we arranged to spend a night and an entire day wandering and seeing the sights.
And there are plenty of sights to see!
From the amazing Port Hercule with its staggering array of multi-gazillion dollar yachts, to “The Casino”, to the beautiful Riviera scenery, it’s definitely a must-see that should be on everyone’s list.
Since it’s shoulder season, we managed to score a hotel room right on the water, complete with spa and all the goodies. If it weren’t for the wallet-sucking room rate, Colette would have never left!

Arriving in Style
When your gangplank has illuminated floorboards… I believe that means you have arrived. We called this the Zuck boat since we saw a crewmember wearing a grey hoodie getting on and off, but Zuck would probably have something twice this size.
