We visited Monte Carlo as a shortstop during our long drive in Europe. We already spent time in Nice so we knew what to expect from the French Riviera. This time, though, we wanted to indulge in even more glamour, and finally get to enjoy the equivalent of a weekend in Monte Carlo. Note that we didn’t actually visit during the weekend. Our so-called weekends are mainly during the week, so we can enjoy a quieter (and cheaper) time away.
