Once again we had a very good tour guide and bus driver. In the end we took the more scenic drive from Cannes to Monaco. Got to visit Monte Carlo, Cathedrale de Monaco where Princess Grace and Prince Rainer are buried, Oceanographic Museum on the outside, and the changing of the guard (even saw Prince Albert in his limo entering the Palace gates). During our free time we were able to visit the Palace, have a coffee and cake at the Chocolaterie de Monaco (chocolatier to the Royal House), do some shopping, visit the gardens overlooking the sea. Afterwards we went to Monaco to visit the Casino on the outside (17 euros to get in and can only see 3 rooms), Opera de Monaco on the outside, Hotel de Paris, and all the crowds ogling the fancy cars parked in the square. Did not enjoy this part of the city. Also saw the circuit of the Formula 1 race, the Jardins Japonais, and some more time to walk around a bit. We managed to see quite a bit, it is a full day tour.
