The parking that has been built inside Monaco's rock (Parking de Pecheurs) is an ideal place to start exploring this small principality. It has many levels underground and elevators and escalators connect to the surface near the Musee Oceanographique. From here all main attractions in Monaco and La Condamine are within walking distance. For Monte Carlo one should again take the car, but that is anyway necessary ... to drive the roads of the famous Formula 1 circuit.
Italian style meets Monaco spondoolix.
"My other car is also a Maserati" stickers sell well in Monaco.
Stylish, but not quite as much style as a story a friend told me. A man of his aquaintance had two Porches in his double garage. Their English number plates were 2B, and NOT2B.
That at least has a literary symetry to it, if not iambic pentameter ( thats a little gizmo that tells you your fuel consumption)
There`s an interesting detail in Monaco:
As the city is really small and situated on a hill there are
some elevators to go up and down the city! And the best thing: They are free!!!
On the photo you can see me...

Getting to Monaco is a thrilling ride. The views from the Moyenne Corniche are stunning, and the winding road will have your heart in your throat! There were two times our bus had to stop to let another bus pass on this narrow two-lane road.
From Nice, take the bus from Gare Routiere. The direct route to Monaco leaves every 15 minutes, Monday through Saturday (20 minutes on Sundays), and takes the Basse Corniche, which runs near the water level. The route through Eze-Village and Beausoleil takes the higher Moyenne Corniche for a longer but more amazing ride.
A return train ticket from Nice Ville to Monaco - Monte Carlo costs 7,20 euro. You have to punch the ticket.
You have to drive into and around Monaco. Just to say you've driven around the grand prix track. Get Fleetwood Mac on and off you go. Took a bit longer than the pros but I was held up by backmarkers.
I never went on one but enjoyed takiing it's picture. Makes my daughter cringe and walk away. They were very popular. You buy a day ticket and hop on and off as you please.
From Cote d'Azur International Nice airport helicopters fly immediately to and from Monaco. Not the cheapest way, but for sure the most spectacular and fast way.
