We set off early by bus for the extortionate price of just one whole euro !
The tourist information in “Place Massenna” were very helpful in sending us to the right bus stop, we checked the times the day before, the tiny writing seemed to be more of a problem than usual (there’s that age thing again) but never fear technology to the rescue again, cameras can take more than just pretty pictures, I took a photo of the timetable and then zoomed in on the little screen to see the times we needed, ha, instant (and enlarged) memory.
The bus stop isn’t well signposted at Monte Carlo, it’s just a stop not a station so follow the crowds as they seemed to get it right, we didn’t and had to walk back a few stops but it was a lovely day and we’re both happy walking so that was fine.
The tour guides were right, Monte Carlo is the place to be for watching posh people and fast cars. Although I seem to remember seeing a lot more of the watchers than the watched.
Don’t get me wrong, Monte Carlo is really beautiful and I wouldn’t have missed the day there on our visit at all but I couldn’t help feel that everything was a little “too perfect” though, as if we were allowed to look but not touch, but hey, isn’t that what everyone was there to do anyway, and yes, I would quite happily go back again to enjoy the beauty of it all.
