As a small ship we were able to dock, thus access to Monte Carlo was convenient. We were in Monaco two weeks before the Grand Prix and enjoyed walking along the streets set-up for the race course. Everything was convenient for walking and exploring from the port. Some passengers went to Nice (1 Euro bus ride) to visit museums or find a beach.
One interesting excursion was a tour of the interior of the palace, but we were too jet-lagged to be interested in an excursion immediately upon arrival.
